Traditionally, this small sandwich consists of stewed meat like pork belly, stuffed between a soft and fluffy steamed bun, yet many variations are common across the city. From fillings ranging from jerk chicken to jackfruit, these pockets of goodness can pack a whole lot of flavour in just a few bites.

Much attention is put into the steamed lamb leg bao at this Burmese restaurant in Bayview Village. A roast honey lamb leg is marinated for 48 hours and grilled twice before filling them in the buns.
