We order this one about once a month.
It is one of our favorites. So easy and so good.
To me, these pork bao buns are emblematic of the flavors and methods of Georgie &Tom's. This dish is very easy to pre.pare and yet it has complex taste and ingredients. You can put it all together easily and enjoy a range of gastronomic delight. The sprig of cilantro at the end is the proverbial icing on the cake
We can only eat three apiece. The pork and fixings are really flavorful and the buns are perfect bao buns. I wrap them in a damp paper towel and put them in the microwave for 30-40 seconds. They are fluffy and light!
This is an amazing dish and hard to believe that it's ready to enjoy in under 5 minutes. The pork is very flavorful without being overly seasoned or heavy and marries well with the toppings. Our meal was missing a few key items such as the peanuts and unfortunately the cucumber arrived spoiled however I had items on hand to replace them so we enjoyed the meal as it was intended to be prepared. Compared to some other dishes, we found this to be a large portion with 4 buns per person. In fact, I could only eat 2 of them! I prepared a super simple Korean cucumber salad as a side (this would be a good dish to include) and we had a meal that tasted as if it was from a fine restaurant. Uber easy to prepare and virtually no clean-up. A win win in my book! Won't disappoint!
I see some people say the serving size is small, but I personally thought it was perfect. Very tasty, lots of flavor and the mix of ingredients was great together. I will definitely get these again.
