There are good surprises, like when you remember that your favorite leftovers are in your fridge, and bad surprises, like when your roommate eats said leftovers before you get home. Xiao Bao Biscuit is a good surprise. This spot in Cannonborough-Elliotborough is located inside an old gas station and serves really good Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Cambodian, and Malay food. 

Yes, they’re one of the few places in Charleston that don’t serve biscuits (even though it’s in their name), but the menu is full of hits. Split the pad kra pow, mapo tofu, and okonomiyaki with some friends, and don’t be surprised if someone sends you links to flights to Charleston next month just to come back here.
