Fodor's Review

Lines form daily to secure a prized seat, perch, or stool at this small 30-seater from a team of Tawainese steamed bao bun specialists. The gloriously soft and plump milk-based white bao buns— skillfully stuffed with top Cornish braised pork, peanut powder, and fermented greens, plus fried chicken, crumbed daikon, or lamb shoulder with soy-pickled chilies and garlicky mayo—are the undisputed stars of this tightly-packed show. 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.
