These fluffy baos with unique, lip-smacking fillings have made their presence felt in the culinary landscape in Mumbai for a while now and seem to be growing in popularity. Traditionally filled with braised pork, pickles, mustard and peanuts, served daily in Taiwan’s famous night markets, David Chang, an American chef with South Korean heritage, is widely regarded to be the man, bringing bao to the masses from his New York restaurant Momofuku in 2004. A host of places in Mumbai offer baos with their own special twist. My top 5 picks :

The Patty Bao, at The Fatty Bao, Andheri West, Western Suburbs

Minced lamb in the form of a neat patty, with gherkins and a black bean sauce, filled generously in a bao, makes for a delightful snack in this season. The Fatty Bao, Andheri offers a plethora of delectable baos firmly anchored in fresh Asian flavours. Vegetarians can relish the Crispy Beet Patty Bao which is bursting with flavours.
