Facing a cobblestone alleyway, Wonderbao is one of Melbourne’s more recent ‘bao’ havens. Their approach is just as much ‘downtown Chinatown’ – authentic, cheap, simple – as it is ‘now’ – fresh, fun, minimalistic.
Wonderbao serves several delicious varieties of bao, including:
- Braised pork belly gua bao
- Roast pork belly gua bao
- Da chicken bao
- Cheung chay bao (chinese sausage)
- Choi bao (veg)
- Nai wong bao (custard)
Yum. And each bao is priced between $2-4, so they’re genuinely street treats.
Kitchen-sized, seating is limited so be prepared to order to go.
