London’s first Taiwanese inspired bottomless brunch
A culinary first for London, South London based Taiwanese restaurant, Mr Bao, has launched an all new Bottomless Brunch offering to hungry Londoners and their devoted local following in Peckham on buzzing Rye Lane.
Building on the ever-growing success since their debut opening in February 2016, Mr Bao’s unique new offering is perfectly placed alongside their ongoing commitment to producing quality East Asian food using only the freshest daily ingredients sourced from local suppliers as well as specialist ingredients from Taiwan.
Available every Saturday & Sunday, 11am-4pm, Mr Bao will be taking those soft white ‘pillowy’ buns to another level. Served alongside their regular menu, diners can expect a wonderfully creative Taiwanese-twist to one of the weekend’s greatest pleasures.
Meander your way through: Bao Benedict (£5.90) – Slow Braised Flock + Herd Pork, Wilted Spinach, Free Range Egg, Hollandaise and Bao Bun; Mushrooms on Toasted Bao (V) (£5.50) – Oyster + Portobello Mushrooms on a Toasted Bao served with Wasabi Crème Fraîche; Taiwanese “Scotch” Egg (£4) – Soft Boiled Egg Wrapped in Taiwanese Spiced Sausage, covered in Crisp Noodles and The Full Taiwanese (£9.50) – Taiwanese Sausages, Spring Onion Pancake, Bao Bun, Soy Glazed Eggs, Asian Beans, Flock + Herd Smoked Bacon – to name a few.
For those sweet-toothed, be sure to save room for the Bao S’More (£4) – Fried Bao, Melted Chocolate, Toasted Marshmallows + Peanuts. Too good not to!
Wash it all down with your pick of Taiwanese-inspired cocktails or aged teas flown in from Taiwan. Priced from only £14 for the ‘Bottomless Hour’, choose from: White Night In Taipei bringing together Passionfruit Jam, Lychee, Lime and White Rum or the ultimate brunch accompaniment – Bloody Mary’s Hungover – served with Sparkling Sake, Vodka, Fresh Tomato Juice, Wasabi, Sriracha, Wasabi Salt.
Not that you need one but now there really is no excuse for wanting the weekend to arrive – sooner.

Notes to Editors
Taiwanese restaurant Mr Bao opened the doors of their debut establishment in February 2016 and have since become a firm favourite in the Peckham community.
Having acquired a derelict former shoe shop on Rye Lane, founders Frank Yeung and Nick Birkett transformed the neglected premises into Mr Bao’s first London outlet offering a welcoming dining oasis for all.
Interior inspiration comes from Asian coastal docks, featuring bashed cooper and solid industrial steel furniture combined with the building’s original architectural features and a beautiful, original 75 year-old wall map of the Asian coastline which brings the ethos together.
History of Mr Bao
Frank Yeung is Mr Bao. Frank’s dad, Joe grew up in Hong Kong in a very poor family. Joe used to make little stars out of paper and sell them to buy his family food. The first thing he ever bought his mum with the proceeds was a live goose.
31 years ago, Joe caught a boat over to England and opened a small Chinese/Taiwanese restaurant. He poured blood, sweat and tears into his restaurant: 6 days a week, 52 weeks a year. It fed, clothed and put his three children through school, university and life.
He closed the restaurant in 2016 and is now helping Frank continue his mission to bring amazing Chinese/Taiwanese inspired food to the English market with Mr Bao.
