If you’re looking to add to the bucket list of good eats definitely add this place. Pork buns are fresh, sweet, and savory. Soup broth also is excellent.

The line was quite long. However, the service was pretty fast. We bao is superb. If possible, try to be there earlier. Will be back again if I am in town

I came here twice for the corn soup. It’s the best food here as Taiwan food is too sweet and oiled and I hope the restaurant will reduce the plastic bag for the buns

Incredible Pork belly Guao bao ! The soups are also quite good but the Guao bao is the highlight. You must try it if you are a the streetfood lover, the place is small and a little bit hidden but the food is really worth...it. It truly is a hidden gem.More

No wonder there are people liming up for this steamed bun. It is flavorful and cheap! Bought one and had it for lunch.

This definitely lived up to the hype! Was the best Bao we have had in Taipei! We were lucky to come at a time when there wasn’t much of a line. We tried both the half half and a full fat version of the Bao....Would definitely recommend the half half as it is a good place of pork and flavor! My partner added some chili sauce to hers which she found quite tasty! Over all worth coming here to try one! They are 60TWD Each! Check out the photos!More

If you are eating your way through Taipei and don’t get down this way you’re not getting it. Yes, this is the best of the traditional sammy. Wait! There’s more! This entire neighborhood is in my opinion, food central. This is where all those cheap...snacks in the countless Night Markets grow up! The prices are a little better and the quality is exponentially better! Not to be missed.More

Oh man, this place is one of the few places I'd tell people they absolutely, positively have to try when in Taipei! The bao is made fresh with lots of spices, but the soups they have area are also very filling. Should you get there...a bit earlier and perhaps fat isn't your thing, you can choose how heavy the pork is. I'm still dreaming about the meal I had there!More

Very delicious streamed sandwiches, best in town! You can choose the filling, from very lean to very fat pork. My personal favourite is mixed-fat or fat. A must-go place in Taipei!

We came here for lunch to try the bao’s and they were definitely worth the visit, tasty slow cooked pork ( you can choose from fatty, lean or a mixture of both) with a seasoning and topped with fresh coriander. Join the queue and enjoy.
