Review on Baozi Inn

A cut-price, streetwise joint from the people who brought Bar Shu to Soho, the Baozi Inn has echoes of its elder sister's palate-numbing Szechuan food, but the emphasis is very different. This is a fast-running place, with no frills, no standing on ceremony, no hanging around and an ultra-cheap menu that makes its impact with noodles, dumplings and - of course - the eponymous baozi (gorgeously sticky, stuffed steamed buns revved up with black vinegar and chilli oil).

Sit on wooden stools at cramped utilitarian low tables and enjoy bowls of dan-dan noodles (a classic that's peddled by Chengdu's street vendors) or their Beijing counterparts (perhaps with fermented bean and pork sauce). Otherwise hit the dumplings or the 'spice-flowering' homemade tofu and order a side of cold, 'ginger juice' spinach.
