Scarborough is home to some of the best cafes and food spots in the area. Their food scene just got one more exciting addition.

BAO MAMA, known for its mouthwateringly soft baos and Filipino eats, has opened its first storefront in Scarborough.

What first started as a woman-owned foodservice business in Oshawa, has flourished into a successful Ghost kitchen and now dine-in restaurant.

“Our mission is to spread the goodness and love of the Filipino people through food that is warm and inviting to everyone,” reads their site.

“We think that our bao buns are such a fun and perfect way to introduce Filipino/Asian cuisine to the world.”

All their baos are created with a handmade bao bun, specialty housemade sauces, topped with delicious asian house slaw and sprinkled green onions.
