Mr Bao offers a fantastic Taiwanese-inspired menu of steamed milk buns, soft as pillows, wrapped around everything from pork belly to ice cream. The food is complemented by cocktails, beers and specialist aged teas brought in from Taiwan. The menu is succinct, with an extra board of specials on display each week. The dishes come as small tapas-style plates so it is suggested that you order two to three buns per person and then a couple of sides as well. There really are some great flavours to be discovered. Just a five minute walk from Peckham Rye overground station, Mr Bao is quietly tucked in among a string of shops on Rye Lane.

Not too expensive (compare to central and "trendy" east London), super good food, tasty, well done! Also, probably the only place in Peckham where I saw (finally) a realistic mix of people - not only white "hysptery" "young professionals" and rich mums (working in media) with bugaboos... au contraire! Young, old, black, white, locals like it should be everywhere in the area!

Everything a restaurant should be: welcoming, actually nice and accommodating service, but most importantly, food of the utmost quality (and great cocktails). The baos are out of this world. Try it!
