GWA BAOS 刈包
Gwa baos (刈包 translates literally to "cut bun") are a Taiwanese street food that traditionally consists of pork belly that is prepared using a cooking method called 紅燒 [hong shao], which translates loosely to "red cooking" (the name comes from the red color that this method imparts to the food). With this cooking method, the meat is slowly braised in a liquid base consisting of soy sauce, sugar, and a mixture of spices and seasonings. The pork belly is traditionally accompanied by a set of condiments that includes pickled mustard greens 酸菜, cilantro 香菜, and peanut powder 花生粉. Gwa baos have also grown in popularity in recent years, with a wide variety of ingredients being used as fillings and condiments - becoming known as the "Taiwanese hamburger".
