If you ask me, Bao Buns are definitely the new cool. The buns are made with soft dough, and they’re stuffed with delicious and savory fillings. If this sounds like something you’re craving, check out the Bao Bae food truck which offers you this flavorful treat in all its glory.

According to Bao Bae’s Head of Culinary, Mirwan Abid, “The concept of Bao Bae was fuelled by a need to create an accessible approach to fast food without being bound by its traditional constraints. We provide upscale fast food at an accessible price point without compromising on quality which is why everything is made in-house, from our buns to our noodles and all our sauces.”

Doesn’t that sound amazing? 🤩

OPTP was previously known for its simple yet divine fries and burgers. But now it’s known for quite a lot of things (let’s say almost everything). And Fried Pizza Pie is one of the recent additions to OPTP’s menu. It definitely looks delicious, and worth a try.

Didn’t imagine something which sounds like an abomination to look this appetizing, did you? If you’ve tried chocolate parathas and loved them, and if you’ve tried meethay samosay (I personally don’t want to talk about it) then chocolate samosas are the next best thing.

5. Gol Gappay Shots
