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 the 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 !
