Bao Bei – A Year After | A Brand New Menu

Entry posted by Andre Cheung · - 40 views

Tucked away down an underground space on Wyndham Street, Bao Bei is still the made-in-Hong-Kong eatery and bar located in the nightlife hub of Hong Kong. Introducing a brand new menu a year after, it still serves small plates of east-meet-west dishes with a playful and modern presentation.

A Sichuan Edamame to start, seasoned with hot Sichuan pepper and chili oil. Followed by thinly sliced pork belly with chili garlic sauce, and a very refreshing hand-pulled chicken salad with mixed greens and a moreish wasabi sesame dressing.

Aside from their signature steamed bao with slow-cooked pork belly, we have a new rice burger with homemade barbecue pork and fried egg. The rice has been pretty well flavored with “furikake”, a kind of Japanese rice seasoning, pan-seared and stuffed with tender char siu, arugula, caramelized onion and a runny fried egg, despite the barbecue sauce is a tad too sweet for my liking.

Favourites are the popular mapo tofu fries baked with cheese, minced pork, tofu and chili over a huge bed of thin cut fries; chewy and batter-fried rice cake covered with creamy cheesy carbonara sauce.

Something bigger on the menu is a Korean-inspired claypot rice baked with kimchi, and bulgogi, whilst the baked curry chicken in a sweet and crunchy pineapple bun crust is deliciously juicy and succulent. Not to mention its strong and aromatic lemongrass flavor!
