Pavement, Merchant City

Did you know the term bao bun is actually incorrect? Fun fact: bao means bun, so it’s kind of redundant, right? Somehow, however, this is how they are well-known in the UK. The original name seems to be Gua Bao, and I’ve read they are also known as Taiwanese hamburgers. The ever-enlightening source of Wikipedia…
