I wait impatiently in line, tapping my foot and hoping that I make it to the front before I die of starvation. The intoxicating scent of grilled meat and marinated vegetables filled the air, making the line seem infinitely longer than it actually is.
After what seems like forever, I make it to the front, facing one of the few Taiwanese food trucks in Seattle. “It’s Bao Time” is written across the side.
“Hi, what can I get you today?” asked the cashier with a smile.
I seriously contemplated getting everything on the menu, but settled on getting a gua bao dubbed the “Pig LeBaoski” and a beef wrap.
A gua bao is an open-faced filled steam bun, which are popular as street food in Taiwan.
It’s Bao Time on 320 Harrison Street from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday, and at 333 Boren Ave N. (by the Amazon high rises) on Mondays and Fridays.
