February 24th, 2011. I Baohaus
Baohaus Baohaus Baohaus!!!
I’d heard about this place via “food in mouth”, a smart, sarcastic, hilarious and incredibly delicious food blog by an NYCer. Let me say this off the bat: I Love Bao. What can you not love about a pillowy soft bite-sized bun that’s filled with delicious meat, sauce and fresh green aromatics? it’s just a recipe for love… ♥
It’s quite tiny inside with pictures of the family’s history. The employees are not family members..but still dedicated to making my stomache happy with some well made baos! The best part are the gangster tunes rockin out from the little mini stereo…rocking out to “Gangsta’s Paradise” while eating my baos!!!
CHAIRMAN BAO: Braised slow and low using all natural Berkshire Pork Belly. Served with: Crushed peanut, cilantro, Haus Relish, and Taiwanese red sugar. The fatty pork belly was just rich enough to give that really delicious flavor without being super oily and all the ingredients together was like a symphony.
HAUS BAO TM: Signature all natural Hanger Steak Bao as seen on
Food Network’s Ultimate Recipe Showdown (March 2010). Served with: Crushed peanut, cilantro, Haus Relish, and Taiwanese red sugar. Ugh!! So delicious! Tender fall apart steak, sauce was perfection and with the crushed peanuts, fresh chopped cilantro and tangy relish it was perfection 😀
Because I loved it so much one more gratuitous photo of the 2 baos with the common Taiwanese staple beverage, Apple Sidra 🙂
