On the back of its success at last year's Sydney Night Noodle Markets, and this year's Lunar Markets, the Bao Stop pop-up is back. From the inside of its converted shipping container, the Bao Stop crew will serve its trademark gua baos, a staple of Taiwanese and Chinese street food.
A gua bao has the fluffy, steamed consistency of a pork bun, folded over in the shape of a taco and then stuffed with one of four fillings: pork belly, fried chicken, fried Peking duck and fried tofu. It also serves Taiwanese sweet-potato fries with chilli mayo, chives and roasted peanuts.
Bao Stop is booked in for a three-month stay at a car park in Drummoyne. Its time there might be extended, but it already has offers to take its shipping container to other locations around Sydney. Bao Stop will also appear at the Sydney Night Noodle Markets later this year.
Joint owners Matty Forwood and Matt Hryniuk have plans for weekend events including big screens to watch the football on and a petting zoo for kids. Keep your eye on the Facebook page for updates.
