Bao Soho

Planning to eat at this cult Taiwanese eatery, originally a market stall established in 2012, is a real expedition. Expect to wait, even outside peak times. But the reward is worth your patience: a seat at the counter and kind smiles from the waitresses in their white uniforms.

And then the best bit, tucking into Erchen Chang’s cloudy, pillowy baos: the addictive pork classic (peanut powder, pickles, coriander), the cheeky fried chicken… Keep ticking the boxes on the menu by throwing in some ace xiao chi little plates (aubergine dip and wonton crisps, trotter nuggets), and raise a glass of homemade peanut milk or a Snow Blossom saké.

Bao Soho

Aller dans ce repaire taïwanais culte né sur un marché en 2012, c’est toute une expédition. Slalomer entre les pics, faire quand même la queue… Puis s’attabler au comptoir épuré et recevoir un sourire des discrètes serveuses en blouse blanche.

Enfin surtout, mordre dans les baos moelleux comme un câlin de la cheffe Erchen Chang : porc, poudre de cacahuètes, pickles et coriandre mythique, poulet frit insolent… Pour cocher la liste qui se noircit sans fin, cap sur les xiao chi, petites assiettes sophistiquées (caviar d’aubergine et chips de wonton, nuggets de pied de cochon…) à relever d’un lait de cacahuète maison ou d’un saké Snow Blossom.
