Summary

“Oriental steamed buns to die for” explain the “perpetual queue” at these “tiny”, “fast ’n’ furious” cafés in Soho and Fitzrovia, whose “reinvented Taiwanese street food” (“complex, apparently simple, always daring”) includes other intriguing dishes (“like beef cheek and tendon nuggets”), as well as “interesting Taiwanese teas”.

Summary

“A Soho legend in the making!”; this Taiwanese phenomenon has (with backing from the Sethi family, of Gymkhana fame) “successfully made the transition from Hackney street stall to tiny restaurant”; the pay-off for the legendary queues? – “heavenly soft buns filled with tasty, slow-cooked meat”, and “the best, crunchy fried chicken in London”.
