Baojaam is my favorite food stall at the Balti Jaam Turg food market in Tallinn. Inspired by the traditional Taiwanese gua bao, a steamed soft bread with meat and vegetable fillings, Baojaam stays fairly close to the authentic versions. The buns are made from scratch in the tiny kitchen, but with wheat flour instead of rice (I actually prefer wheat). Head chef Mihkel Rand worked at NOA Chef’s Hall and got inspired to start experimenting with baos by a colleague who made them for staff meal. Soon after, Rand left fine dining to pursue the simpler cooking of street food.
