For lovers of the bao bun, a visit to London’s Bao is a total non-negotiable. With three locations of distinct character around the city (Fitzrovia, Borough Market and Soho), Bao serves the best Taiwanese street food you can get this side of Taipei. Go for their delicious bao buns, but don’t shy away from the other à la carte offerings, like ping paan in Fitzrovia, chi shiang rice in Soho and curry wurst at Borough Market. And if you do end up popping into the Borough Market location, why not book the private karaoke room for a few rounds of bao buns, drinks and song? When it comes to bao buns and authentic Taiwanese food (including bubble tea!) in London, nothing compares to Bao.
