BAO BUNS SMALL 20GR BUN 25PC BAG
Bao might have been invented over a thousand years ago, but it’s only very recently that they’ve become a global phenomenon.
When it comes to fillings, the world is your oyster – although the most common is delicious char siu barbecue pork, with plenty of rich sticky sauce to soak into the bun’s open texture. There are hundreds of other variations found all over, from tangbao (buns filled with soup which is drunk through a straw) and sweet pink buns filled with lotus bean paste in China to the kaya-baozi of Singapore, filled with a sweet coconut or pandan curd. Some bao are pan-fried before or after steaming for a crunchy golden top, too. Beef, fish, mushrooms, and even chocolate are common bao fillings, but as long as something tastes delicious and has a little bit of sauce to go with it, chances are it’ll taste good inside a pillowy steamed bun.
