Wondering where to get bao in London? BAO SOHO
is an excellent choice. This is one of three BAO restaurants dotted around the city from the same group which all specialise in Taiwanese BAO. These fluffy, delicious steamed buns stuffed with mounds of tantalising different fillings have become a firm favourite of mine.
I opt for a classic BAO and a fried chicken BAO. Both are superb and absolutely packed with flavour. The classic just about wins due to its delicious pulled pork filling topped with an incredibly moreish peanut dust
But the fried chicken is a very close second. Crispy and with a hit of heat.
I also go for a small bowl of trotter nuggets which are deep, rich and piggy in the best way.
A bowl of slow cooked aubergine, spiced to just the right level (for me anyway) are served with a few wonton crisps. A good contrast to the meaty options and a seasonal soda (blackberry and jasmine) helps wash this all down.
This is where to get Bao in London:
Service here is efficient and quick and this is a great value lunch in the heart of Soho. Next time I am going all in for a full BAO selection including confit pork, lamb shoulder, daikon, plus the classic and the fried chicken!
Bao Out of London:
if you live in the Cambridgeshire area GUERRILLA KITCHEN
do a fine selection of BAO so try these too. You won’t be disappointed.
