It may be winter, but the Panda is coming out of hibernation!

After taking a sabbatical in 2016. BaoDown is set to take over the food truck scene in a one-off collaboration with good friends, Tommy Taco.

Bao & Taco lovers unite, as this Friday, 14th July, the two-food truck favourites will take over the Friday Street Food Market in Cathedral Square from 11am – 9pm.

On offer from the two is just what you would expect with a few surprises too!

Bao’s, the classic soft white bun filled to the brim with modern Asian flavours such as free range pulled pork or Chicken and Taco’s – perfectly layered with fresh seasonal produce, like the Pumpkin Mole’ with ranch, jalapeno salsa and pickled red onion or the 8-hour braised beef with handmade hot sauces!

Enjoy Friday Lunch or post work Dinner in the city - Bao Taco Bao Wow!
