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.

A gua bao is an open-faced filled steam bun, which are popular as street food in Taiwan.
