4 TYPES OF CHINESE BAO
The hero dish from Mr. Phan is his steamed bao buns (gua bao). Actually, Bao means bun, but to ease translation, they are usually known as bao buns. Typically the buns consist of the bun itself, a piece of chaur-sui (Chinese barbecue) marinated pork and vegetables for a crunchy texture. According to Mr. Phan, all 5 types of flavours are present. The sweetness from the bun, the sour and bitter from pickled vegetables, the salty from soy sauce and umami from the marinated pork. The baos come in four variants: chicken, beef, pork or vegan with tofu.
