Baozi ... Try them at London's roving Yum Bun or Oxford's Zhonghua.

I got all excited to try them at Oxford's Zhonghua until it turned out that Oxford's Zhonghua is actually in Cambridge which btw Londoners is not the same place

since I am a provincial and my backward town is at least three years behind London's hipster food trends, only sliders and bubble tea (and bacon) have reached us yet. We're still in the middle of the cupcake trend. I would take most of these over hipster cupcakes.

(is a baozi different to the old-style fluffy steamed char siu pork buns with rice paper on the bottom? we have those at every dim sum place in town, obv, but not this new hip variant. admittedly they look suspiciously exactly like the frozen prepackaged ones you can buy by the crateful at the Chinese wholesaler instead of being artisanally hand-assembled in a street food wagon)

baozi less doughnutty than char siu bun. thinner dough, more filling.

as in i was walking past what was just a regular old café yesterday and there was a guy there with a big camera on a tripod pointing it down at a table with one macaroon on it to take pictures to advise the fact they now did macaroons

bubble tea has been availabe in the UK since some time in the last decade but became a little harder to miss last year. this isn't even the guardian food critic's idea of what constitutes 'hip food' though is it, there will be some inaccuracies

We got a dozen Macaroons for Christmas; had to endure a five-minute lecture from the guy in the Macaroon shop about how to store any uneaten Macaroons (fyi moisture is the enemy of meringue).

macaroons seem way more hipstery than macaroons, although macaroni (and cheese) may out-hipster the both of them.

I'm not that excited by any of these options. Also I didn't know that whipped butter and french dip had become hipster foods - I think of french dip as a diner sandwich and whipped butter as a random but kind of good thing my grandma always had around.

french dip to me is cream cheese with french onion soup mix made into a dip for crackers.

i first learned about french dip during my year at applebee's. one of the first things they taught newer waiters was how to pronounce "au jus".

two years pass...

Imagine a cereal cafe...but instead of pouring milk in your rare cherry flavoured Choc Pops, they pour bone broth.
