Food-to-go retailer Itsu has launched a new breakfast range with an Asian twist.

The range includes fluffy steamed bao buns, which are served with a choice of four fillings:

  • Benedict: a poached egg, spinach, ham hock and miso hollandaise
  • Florentine: a poached egg, spinach and miso hollandaise
  • Avo & seeds: a poached egg, miso hollandaise, spinach, avocado and pumpkin seeds
  • Itsu’Beans: a poached egg, miso hollandaise, spinach and spicy beans

Aimed at commuters, the range is available until 10am at major travel hubs, including London Victoria station, Bicester, Euston, Gatwick Airport, Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 and Stansted Airport.

British Baker subscribers can read our report on Breakfast Bakery ‘Going to work on a healthier sandwich’, which discusses healthier alternatives to the greasy breakfast sandwich.

As well as breakfast, bao buns are becoming increasingly popular as carriers for a variety of fillings – for example burgers, as noted in our recent piece on Burger bun challengers.
