NYC Quick Chop! Baohaus

Baohaus - 238 E 14 Street, NYC, 10003

I (Mirko) first tasted Bao (savoury Taiwanese steamed buns) about 3 years ago during a visit to New York City (NYC). Upon my return to Adelaide I then saw this Taiwanese food item being sold at other locations witnessing the global birth of this food trend. 

Fast forward a few years and a random walk past Baohaus, and I could not resist another visit to this establishment opened up by Eddie Huang. Sidenote - if you haven't had a chance to watch Fresh off the Boat (a series that chronicles the life of Eddie as a child) I definitely recommend it.

Walking in, memories of my first visit are conjured up again with those ever familiar hip-hop beats playing in the background, all made ever more relevant after watching Fresh off the Boat and Eddie's love for all things hip-hop as a child! 

I opt for the Chairman Bao which is braised Berkshire pork belly with a Haus relish, crushed peanuts, Taiwanese red sugar and cilantro. The pork belly melts in your mouth and coupled with soft bao, sweet sauce and textural crunch of the peanuts is a feast for the mouth. Friends that also tried these for the first time were definite fans.

Chairman Bao - $3.55 each
If you haven't had a chance to try Bao before, I recommend that Baohaus be on your list of places to visit. With a cool urban vibe, hip-hop beats in the background and tasty bao's, what more could you ask for.
