Gua Bao” – clam shaped soft-dough bun filled with the typical fillings of pork belly is the equivalent of Hamburgers to Taiwanese people.

After seeing all the “gua bao” craze on social networks, I have been craving a long time for one…


Small, cozy shop right next to the Rotary Cafe

And here it is, the bun I have always been looking forward to… Yum Bun‘s “gua bao”.. accidentally discovered this place while walking back from St.Paul Cathedral… and oh what a little treasure I have found!

IMG_0023First the “gua bao” with slow-cooked pork belly, fresh cucumber, spring onion and hoi-sin sauce with the optional spice from Sriracha..

As I bite into it, the bun was soft, fragrant.. tender pork belly and fragrant from the spices used to slow cook and the hoi-sin goes well but I think the hoi-sin for me was abit on the salty side…

Second the chicken “gua bao”,

the chicken was cooked in teriyaki sauce with a hint of ginger which gives the bun a nice fragrance, bun was equally soft and abit chewy like the first filling I had, accompany by the chilli sauce and mayo combined it all well together of the sweetness of the mayo, savoury of the teriyaki sauce and the spice from the chill inside.
