"Baozi" or stuffed steamed buns is a traditional food from China that has been a hit at Harvard recently thanks to one Chinese entrepreneur.

A shop called "Tom's BaoBao" at Harvard Square opened in July welcoming Harvard students and teachers to buy the baozi for US $3 per bun, which has since been a sensation especially with the many Chinese students that attend Harvard.

The owner is an engineer from China named Tong Qihua or "Tom" as he is known in America. Tom ran baozi restaurants in China for years with almost 200 branches across China's Yangtze River Delta region, perfecting his craft with his engineering know-how. All of the buns and stuffing used in his shops have a precise weight, within a 2-gram error range, and are cooked in traditional bamboo steamers. Tom's BaoBao shop's special is a kind of baozi called Gan Qishi which is famous in Hangzhou, east China's Zhejiang Province.

With the success of Tom's BaoBao shop, Tom plans to keep opening branches within the United States, focusing next on the state of Rhode Island.
