AMAZING
1st BLACK COD BAO
BAO Fitzrovia, London
Cod Black - not a new first person shooter but a delightful small bun holding fried cod fillet in a black batter, with Ng sauce and hot sauce. Like a glorious mini dark fish o filet with a twist
2nd CLASSIC BAO
BAO Fitzrovia, London
Bao down. Classic braised pork, coriander and crushed peanut. So moreish. šŸ˜‹
3rd PORK BELLY BAO
Pot Sticker Dumpling Bar, Christchurch
For me, pork belly is the classic bao bun filling you have to get right and this is a good example. Thick cut of a tender roast pork belly with crunchy skin. Cucumber and picked red onions work well with the sticky hoisin sauce. Definitely worth getting! šŸ˜‹
4th FRIED CHICKEN BAO
Pot Sticker Dumpling Bar, Christchurch
Excellent fried chicken thigh with spicy mayo. Crunchy exterior, juicy meat, nice contrast from the sauce. Probably a few too many beansprouts but they fall out anyway so I'm not counting that...
REALLY GOOD
5th BIG BAO WITH BEEF
Wen Jia Bao, Singapore
Its called a Big Bao for a reason and its just SGD $2
6th CHINESE BEEF BURGER
R & H Chinese Food, Richmond
Super tender beef with good flavour. Tiny bit dry so could use a sauce on top but otherwise šŸ˜‹
7th FRIED CHICKEN BAO
Mean Bao, Toronto
Good, crispy panko crusted and tender thigh fillet. A little bit of cartilage left on the meat which I chewed through - not a problem for me since I've got a taste for it, but could be a problem for those not used to it.
8th PORK BELLY BAO
Mean Bao, Toronto
Super soft pork belly but a little bit shy on the hoisin. Skin wasn't crispy either, but otherwise very good.
9th PORK BAO
Seashell by Nu Eatery, ThĆ nh phį»‘ Hį»™i An
Lovely modern Vietnamese kitchen serving familiar dishes with a twist like these snack-sized pork bao buns
