Buns, buns, buns and more buns! San Francisco’s Chairman Bao food truck has been serving their loyal fans with both baked and steamed Chinese style buns as one of the earliest gourmet food trucks in SF! The Chairman Bao truck is very noticable and draws attention wherever it goes, both for it’s food and appearance.
The Chairman Bao menu is broken down into People’s Buns with a choice between the red sesame chicken with scallion and bok choy bun or the crispy garlic tofu with miso greens bun (vegetarian). Like all of the Chaiman’s buns they can be ordered either steamed or baked.
For a few cents more the Chairman’s Buns offer a choice between the tender pork belly with pickled daikon bun or the the pulled pork with savory cabbage and preserved mustard seed bun.
The steamed buns are quite a bit smaller than the baked buns so choose which you prefer depending on your hunger level. It’s fun to get a couple of the smaller steamed buns to try the different tastes and flavors. The pork belly buns seem to be the top sellers, when you bite into it you will first experience it’s crispness and then be pleased with it’s juicyness and flavor. The flavor of the pork is complimented by a tad of hoisin sauce.
Get to the Chairman Bao food truck early as on most days there is a pretty long line, and for good reason, as Chairman Bao delivers tasty, flavorful and savory Chinese buns!
