A Mighty Manapua Mixed Plate


On the Hong Kong island of Cheung Chau, a unique tradition honors the humble cha siu bau, which we know as manapua. 

A tower is constructed four stories high on which thousands of manapua are mounted like ornaments on a Christmas tree.

Kung Fu clubs select one plucky athlete to represent them in the most bizarre and entertaining competition in Asia. 

Join Mixed Plate as we witness the Great Manapua Grab and so much more as Pamela Young brings us stories from China, Macao, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

A Mighty Manapua Mixed Plate premiered on June 20, 2018 at 9:30 p.m. on KHON2 and will re-air on July 17 at 8 p.m. and July 28 at 7 p.m. The show will also re-air on Hawaii’s CW on June 26 at 10:35 p.m. and July 10 at 6:30 p.m.
