Did Bao Borough Live Up To The Hype?

Known for their queue-inducing restaurant in Soho, Bao is one of the best places for buns in London. But now that the Taiwanese spot has moved from central London to Borough Market, how do things fare up? I headed down to the Asian favourite for a review on DesignMyNight.


Fancy the full low-down? Check out the full review that I wrote for DesignMyNight here.

The verdict: 8/10

The damage: (£71 for two of us, but all comped)

What we ate: 

  • Cold-smoked aubergine (£4.75)
  • Beef short rib bao (£5.75)
  • Chicken nugget bao (£5.75)
  • Prawn shia song bao (£5.75)
  • Taiwanese fried chicken (£6.75)
  • 40-day-aged beef (£10.25)

What we drank: 

  • New-Bipp Hi (£8.50)
  • QQ-Hi QQ (£6)
  • Mulled Melon Sour (£9)
  • Woo-Hi (£8.50)

You’ll find Bao Borough at 13 Stoney Street, London, SE1 9AD.
