Montreal’s Little Hidden Bao Bun Spot You Need To Try As Soon As Possible

I don't know what it is about the bao bun, but these morsels of delight are pure, unfiltered love. They basically combine the world's best food - bread, not going to lie to you guys - with a bunch of tasty fillings, steamed together for a bun experience that you just legit cannot forget.

Although Montreal is filled with amazing places to get an equally amazing bao bun, it's always great to try out new, awesome spots. And now, Montrealers can do just that.
