Noms! This is still by favorite item from the Chairman Truck! The glaze on the pork belly is absolutely amazing – it’s salty and caramel-y and SO yummy. I love the turmeric pickled daikon and the steamed bun is always pillowy soft.

I’ve almost tried all the different steamed buns available at The Chairman Bao Truck – I think I just the crispy garlic tofu to go.  The braised pork was very good.  It was super tender and I love the cabbage and mustard seed topping.  These guys sure know how to make a delicious bun!

Chairman Bao Truck, San Francisco

So I’m a big fan of The Chairman Bao truck and I’ve been slowly trying all the buns whenever I see the truck on my way home from the gym (great way to lose weight, right?).  Although the pork belly bun is still my favorite, this chicken bun was also very good.  It had great flavor and I love the thin cucumber slices.  The chicken was tender and they certainly put plenty of toppings on the bun.  Go Bao!
