Hong Kong’s Little Bao is a lunch counter for dinner, pot-heads paradise designed by Sean-Dix.
A Bao is the Chinese version of sandwich and it is one of those yummy cultural joys that has texture to match taste. The soft squishiness of the rice bread combined with the fried crunchiness of the filling is a match that is hard not to crave.
The version at Little Bao is as good as it gets – and for us was a one time pleasure as we try to avoid the deeply fried foods.
Side dishes to delight over included:
Brussel Sprouts with Fish sauce caramel, chili, peanut, lime & fried shallots
Truffle Fries with Shiitake tempeh, truffle mayo and pickled daikon
Sesame Caesar Salad with Indian lettuce, fried dace, black bean & panko
The Truffle fries looked like scrumptious heart-stoppers. We couldn’t go that decadent – but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t !
Sloppy Chan, braised shiitake tempeh, truffle mayo, sweet pickled daikon, fried shallot – did not photograph well
