[ 台北 ] Mr. Baozi’s (Buns)

[ 包子不需再是白白圓圓的! ]
Mr. Baozi – There’s a kind of “Chinese” buns that you have probably never seen in Chinatowns.

The innovative idea of taking something that was so “traditional” in a regional cuisine and transforming into something of “fashion” and “young” is quite attractive. Instead of going with the normal white and round appearance of Chinese buns, in Taiwan, there’s a different kind of colorful buns. This actually has been out for several years. It was…

pretty big when it came out and people would line up for hours to get the buns. There were also many stores in the major cities in Taiwan. But later on, I guess people here got used to it so many of the stores are closed now (in fact there’s only 2 left now) and you don’t necessarily need to line up to get it. But they do have an extensive online order website where people can order these colorful buns shipped to their doorstep.


I dropped by the small store in Shipai on my way back from Beitou to Taipei Main Station.  It’s like a fastfood place and not far away from the MRT Shipai station.


The menu at the order counter. Apparently they sell other fast-food restaurant-like food & combo.


I got this Panda Bazo 6x pack for free when I got the 12 pack Champion box.
The Panda Baozi with 3 different colors and flavours. That was a bit unexpected and to be honest, I wouldn’t think of getting it if it weren’t given out for free. haha.


There was a total of 6 in 1 Panda box.

Since we have always wanted to try the different baozi out, I got the Champion Pack that includes 12 different baozi. Try them all at once!! Hooray!!  But one thing I didn’t anticipate was the huge packaging box & the weight. & With 12 buns in there (+ 6 more panda baozi; that was 18!), the weight was definitely not light! That got even more interesting when it was rainining and I had a long way to public-transport myself home. :p
