It’s time. It’s finally here. A bao box that will absolutely knock your socks off.
If you haven’t had our bao before, these fluffy angelic buns are an absolute gem. Originating in Northern China, bao is essentially a steamed bun, but it’s not as simple as it sounds. These culinary wonders are ubiquitous across Asia with countless variations, both filled or unfilled.
We’ve taken a few classics, and some of our favourites, to provide you with the ultimate Build-Your-Own Bao-nanza.
Here’s what’s on the menu for this week:
Homemade Bao Buns Light and fluffy homemade bao buns. There’s nothing better.
Korean Barbeque Pork This filing is a classic when it comes to bao. Sweet and savoury with just enough spice to balance the flavour. Korean barbequed pork is legendary amongst food lovers across the globe.
Honey Ginger Shredded Chicken Slow-braised chicken simmered in a ginger, soy, and honey sauce, giving this chicken an unmatched flavour and texture.
Homemade Kimchi A staple Korean condiment made from fermented Napa cabbage, daikon, and green onions.
Kewpie (Japanese) Mayo Pickled Carrots, Onions, and Daikon Shaved Cucumber Broccoli, Carrot, and Sesame Salad
Anna’s Famous Ginger Cookies Some of you may have gotten your hands on these during the holiday season, so you’ll know what we’re talking about when we say they’re highly addictive. These cookies are the perfect light ending to this delicious bao meal.
Our vegetarian alternative is a blackened shredded bean curd, and as usual, we can do a half-vegetarian, half-meat box so everyone gets fed. Just include a note with your preference at checkout.
Order cutoff is 3pm Wednesday, February 24th, with delivery Thursday, February 25th between 11am and 5pm. Never hesitate to ask us about any dietary restrictions you may have, we love to feed people and always do our best to accommodate.
Heat Scale: 1/5 The kimchi does pack some heat (3/5), but you’re in control of how much you put on your bao.
