Chinatown isn’t lacking in grab-and-go options, be it a pick-me-up char siu pork bun or a packed jianbing, and it has another excellent one in Jíxíang Baozi, a tiny Fujianese takeaway spot. The plump handheld fritters lay golden and tanned in the window of this cupboard-sized space and there’s a choice of chicken, pork, and oyster. Take it to go straight from the tray, or ask for another dunk in the fryer if you like your snacks steaming hot and crispy. Of the three, the oyster cake reigns supreme. Salty and packed with a shredded handful of bean sprouts, cabbage, seaweed, and onion—this is a sensational snack for £4.50. The pork, at a quid less, isn’t far behind.
