Saw this place on a TV show, and all over the net as the best for gua bao in Taipei. A bit hard to find, but once there easy to point and order a very tasty snack. In the middle of a fantastic food street.

Simply delicious, meat was amazing and ideally prepared, and the whole composition was perfect. It is one of the best street food eats I've ever had. The show during preparing gua bao is worth seeing, and staff is very nice despite long queue. You must...More

Soft fluffy mantou-like bread, split like pita bread. Enclosing softly steaming shreds of braised pork (either lean, half-fat, or fat). Add a helping of mustard green pickles. Garnish with coriander. Eat. (There is a queue for take away, and a place to eat-in also).

This is definitely the place to go if you want to try authentic steam buns. I've been here many times and will always keep coming. The soups are also very good as well as the steamed rice. Avoid coming on weekends since you will face...More

In England, when you think of Taiwanese food, you automatically think of these steamed sandwich bao, so we had to try these. We chose 1 each and it came to just 100 NTD all in. We both had the half lean/half fatty combination, which mixed...More

Braised pork belly with relish, cilantro and peanut. Their baos are so official. The pork belly is packed with flavor. It was banging. I always make it a point to get gua bao here whenever I'm in Taiwan. I prefer the half lean half fatty...More

A must snack to try when in Taipei. I prefer the half lean pork belly and half fatty pork. Heavy rains didn't stopped me from searching for this restaurant. Perfectly matched with bubble tea from the adjacent stall.

The bun is very soft and has great texture. Pork belly is also softy and tasty. You can choose lean, fat or half/half. With the pickled cabbage and chili sauce, it's so good. I also ordered unique soup with barley, lotus seed, pork stomach and...More
