The first - and still the best - Taiwanese bao outpost of its kind in London. Having originally started as a street food stall in a small East London market, Bao now has six outposts (slightly differing in menu and offering) across London. The OG Soho restaurant still commands a queue on most days at both lunch and dinner times. Go for the pillowy soft bao buns stuffed with an array of unctuous fillings (pork, daikon and fried chicken to name a few) and stay for the delectable Xiao Chi menu of punchy, finger lickin good small plates. Firm favourites include the blood cake and cured egg yolk, Guinea fowl rice and the fried chicken.
