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.

With a prior booking, we were seated straight away. The waitress was very attentive, the food came out with excellent timing. Everything we ate had its own uniqueness. The fried chicken and the Pork Belly Bao were especially notable! We spent around 2 hours there and it totally flew by! They really go to town on the detail, no stone left un turned! Even the ephemera on the wall looked liked it had been plucked straight from the Taiwanese Emperors palace! If you want to get real bang for your buck, and have a great Taiwanese experience, this is the place for you!
