Summary

“Best buns in London no contest” – even “better than Bao!” – claim fans of Lisa Meyer’s Chinese-inspired steamed buns and dumplings (most popularly stuffed with slow-roasted pork belly), which started as a stall in 2010 on Broadway Market, and are now to be found at The Kitchens, Spitalfields Market, as well as various Street Feast locations.
