What is bao?
Bao are soft steamed buns made from flour, yeast, sugar and water. They are traditionally filled with pork and vegetables, but can also be filled with a variety of other ingredients. These buns are seen in a variety of cuisines including Chinese and Taiwanese and vary within regions. They are thought to have originated in Northern China but originally as a plain, unfilled bun. In Shanghai, the Xiao Long Bao filled with a hot broth is very popular, whilst in Northern China they’re often filled with spicy pork. Hong Kong is famous for their Char Siu Ba which has a sweet BBQ pork filling that has been recreated by Wonderbao.
