"Bao" is Chinese for bun, a common staple that can be eaten alone or paired with a variety of fillings. The Little Bao restaurant takes a twist on the humble bao by generating ultimate flavour explosions including slow braised pork belly with sesame and hoisin sauce as well as fish tempura with a tamarind glaze. There is also a chicken and vegetarian option!
There is a note that says "no bao cutting" on the menu, which suggests one bao per person, but don't fret! There are heaps of sharing options, including "Mac and Cheese". "Mac and cheese" is another stab at fusing Western flavours with Chinese elements, replacing the macaroni with steamed rice rolls mixed in a rich mentaiko cheese sauce.
Next up is the much awaited dessert! Think of a fried donut crossed with an ice cream sandwich. Little Bao presents the LB Ice cream Bao. We decided to check out green tea and caramel flavours. The ultimate East meets West flavour explosion again!
