Great baos

Bao Wow (Wan Chai)

Thanks to Openricer 山區麵包王 for inviting me to this tasting.

Since my first visit it was good to see new baos on the menu and improved taro fries.

Here was what we tried:
Kimchili fries:

The fries were just as delicious as poutine but with a little Korean spicy kick to it.
Coconut curry bao:

This was a new flavour which was not on the menu previously.
I loved the crispy onions which went well with the curry.
Taro fries:

The taro fries were delicious and addictive.
Kimchi bulgogi:
grilled sliced beef, kimchi, bean sprouts, homemade bulgogi sauce

(did not try this.)
Bao fries:
with ovaltine condensed milk

The bao fries were too oily for my liking.
It would be great if they made mini baos and fry them lightly so that they would be crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Little round baos would visually look cute too.
Original gua bao:
Braised pork belly, chinese relish, cilantro, crushed peanuts and red sugar.

The original was really tasty with a good balance of cilantro so that the pork belly did not feel heavy.
