The Korean-inspired beef flavour is made with barbecued beef short ribs, kimchi, pickled daiko, and perilla leaf. Sweet okonomiyaki sauce and mayo complete the bao for a creamy and satisfying bite.

The Ol’ Skool Bao is another highlight, comprising a thick slab of spam with truffle scrambled egg, crunchy cabbage, and leek. Holding everything together is a steamed white bun that kong bak bao-loving folks would be familiar with.
