Move over doughnuts, a new bun has rolled into town and is making serious waves in the lunchtime markets around Dublin.
How Bao Now serves the increasingly popular Taiwanese snack, Bao, which is considered the hamburger of Taiwan due to the wide range of ingredients used in the filling such as pork, chicken, fish or beef.
The bun itself is a combination of flour, butter, milk, yeast and a few other ingredients.
