Some Kind of Chinese Ham and Tofu Sandwich

Some Chinese Sandwich Thing

Despite what the header says, those brown slices on that plate were not ham, nor were the white ones tofu (nor cheese, if that's what it looks like). The white things were steamed mantou-like buns, which one then split open and inserted the deep-fried-till-brown tofu skins inside.

There was more to it though. Behind it was another plate with some strange red goop that completely covered a bunch of sliced ham. One placed the ham into the aforementioned sandwich thing and then proceeded to eat it from there, complete with the mildly sweet red sauce oozing out.

I don't know what this is called, but it was my co-workers ordered it at some random restaurant here in Taipei today. Sure, it was a bit of a novelty, but it wasn't anything to get me too excited.
