BAO, Soho After proving popular at Netil Market, BAO was given its first permanent home in Soho, serving its steamed milk buns and Taiwanese cuisine to more hungry Londoners. The buns are filled with ingredients such as braised pork, peanut powder and coriander; fried chicken, kimchi, Sichuan mayo and sesame; and lamb shoulder, garlic mayo and soy pickled chilli. For dessert, there's a fried Horlicks ice cream bao. Fancy more Bao? You can find them in Netil Market and Fitzrovia , too.
