Fodor's Review

Lines form daily to secure a prized seat, perch, or stool at this no-reservations 32-seater from a crack team of Taiwanese steamed bao bun specialists. The gloriously soft and plump milk-based, rice-flour bao buns—skillfully stuffed with organic Cornish braised pork, peanut powder, and fermented greens—are the undisputed stars of the show. The mini bao buns also come with fried chicken, crumbed daikon, or lamb with soy-pickled chilies and garlicky mayo. Start off with the silky scallops in yellow bean garlic sauce and finish with a fried bao bun stuffed with a ball of Horlicks ice cream.
