Notes: Prepare to queue, I guess it is part of the experience, then sit at the U-shaped wooden dining bar, make yourself comfortable and order pretty much everything you see on the menu.
Serving BAOs (steamed, filled buns) and a range of Taiwanese dishes, BAO lives up to its reputation of being one of the most popular food spot in town.
Order as many BAOs as you like but remember to follow up with a portion of Fried Chicken Chop with Soy Cured Egg and the Sha Cha Squid Steak: the sauces in which these dishes are tossed are to die for.
Ps: I challenge you to order a couple of BAOs, probably the tiniest cutest-looking food ever made, and not smile. Impossible
