I love mantou by any name, especially if it has a savory stuffing. I was aware that it has many names and many cognates even in diverse cultures, but never suspected that I would find a great overview of the topic in a publication called "AM Costa Rica" (scroll down the page) by a remarkable individual named Lenny Karpman, who happens to be a retired cardiologist from my very own HMO facility, Kaiser Permanente in San Francisco. I'm going to have to print it out and carry it with me as ammunition when my own cardiologist tsk-tsk's me about the stuff I eat. "It's OK by Lenny" will be my mantou, er, mantra.

Julefrokost is the Greenlandic/Danish version of an extended Christmas holiday, characterized by a lot of easting and a lot of boozing, and the item in the previous post is one of the Julefrokost banquet menus. These particular menus are only posted in Greenlandic, so if you are a little rusty on your Greenlandic, well, you'll know how I often feel when I pick up a menu in China. You can figure out some of the dishes if not all by studying the regular menu, which is available on the site in English (and Danish and Geman as well).
Do they deliver? Well yes, but probably only as far as their dogsled delivery team can go.
