The Chairman Truck Restaurant Review

: Debuted under its former name Chairman Bao in the spring of 2010, The Chairman Truck is one of the most popular food trucks in the Bay Area. Bao, or Chinese buns, baked or steamed, are featured. Traditionally, they’re stuffed first, but here the filling comes later. Unconventional choices such as Chinese spiced duck confit with mango salsa and lion’s head meatball with fresh kimchi offer a broader world perspective. The Chairman is also an unexpected leader when it comes to original and interesting beverages. A hybrid concoction of shaved ice, large and chewy tapioca pearls, pineapple and salted caramel sauce is a lovely foil for the buns. Be forewarned that long lines are not at all unusual when the Chairman truck appears at special events, but it is usually more accessible during weekday appearances.
