I have an unnatural love for street food. I think in any major city, you’ll find the heart of the city in the food its little carts and stalls sell; quesadillas, tamales and tacos; pulled pork sandwiches, lobster rolls, falafels and shawarmas, even those “is this really meat?” doner kebabs.

I’m particular fond of Asian street food – and to mind, there are few better than Gua Bao; a Taiwanese steamed bun stuffed with a stewed or roasted meat – usually pork belly – with some pickled or fresh veg, and sometimes sprinkled with crushed peanuts. It’s not too far removed from roasted pork steamed buns (yes, the ones from Sleeping Dogs, that make you a whole man) but they’re lighter, fresher – and often tastier.

In Other News: Dying Light will soon disappear, Take-Two sued for Tattoo, Who owns ghost? and Nintendo is looking at VR. Again.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
