Among the perks of living in a terrace home are the food trucks and ice cream motorcycles that ride by. If you can relate you’d know some of these food trucks sell fresh and hot paus, similar to the ones we buy at Chinese restaurants that often throws us into a “eat or not to eat” dilemma. Over the years we’ve come to see, taste and definitely grow to love pau. They are a reliable snack and a delectable go-to treat whenever we feel the urge to munch. Out of the many, we could list down, the grilled chicken Gua Bao recipe is one that is foreign to us.
What is Gua Bao?
Gua Bao is a popular street food located in Taiwan. Unlike our usual pau, the Gua Boa is traditionally stuffed pork belly, vegetables and a combination of other condiments, which adds a variety of flavours. They are often eaten as an appetiser but is filling enough for a light main course.
This Gua Bao recipe puts a spin on the traditional Taiwanese street food. It incorporates chicken instead of pork and adds some Hellmann sesame seasoning to the mix making it possible to be made at home.
