Finally! The Chairman is opening at Tenderloin! I’m able to grab the long waited steamed bao from one of the highly raved food trucks at the Bay Area of San Francisco! The Chairman trucks are not easy to locate, especially when they are changing their site location constantly everyday.
In addition to their delicious baos, The Chairman ground restaurant is now serving some rice or noodle bowls and salad, together with two new bao items, Japanese curry beef short ribs and crispy tempeh.
For the first visit, my choices are of course their signatures.
Two slabs of extremely tender pork belly are deliciously smeared with a sweet sticky miso glaze, sandwiched within their fluffy and slightly sweet steamed slider bun, served atop some refreshing crunchy pickled daikon.
Whilst the juicy braised pork is also cooked excellent with a sweet coca cola base, it has been paired wonderfully with yellow mustard dressed cabbage coleslaw.
Both the steamed baos are heavenly and absolutely loved.
This self-serve, quick pick up model is indeed a delicious addition to their business and no matter if it’s the Chairman or the Chairman Truck, their baos are not to be missed!
