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.
