Baoli Bao is the kind of eatery that looks like a cozy nest: we’re warmly welcomed and most of all, we enjoy tasty homemade dishes. With its floral decoration that looks like a jungle, we feel like on vacations and here, everything inspires to relaxation… before we even taste the food of this local gem, we enjoy this exotic break.
The brains behind this restaurant, two lovebirds: Rachel and Ken. Together, they pitched in to create their recipes each more original than the other. Their friends were the first to taste their food in early summer 2018, Baoli Bao has made it to the universe of the Parisian gastronomy. With Ken behind the stoves and Rachel in the dinning room, it was patrons’ turn to let themselves be surprised by the beautiful creations of the young couple.
In this small gourmet cocoon, before ordering, we can first make the best of the place to sip a Bubble Tea, this Taiwanese drink flavored according to your tastes, based on tea, tapioca pearls (pearls holding juice flavored to your liking) that we can drink with or without milk. Note here that bubble teas are vegan and prepared with coconut milk. And while waiting for your order, Baoli Bao provides you board fames likely to make the most impatient eaters happy.
As you may guess it, Bao Burger is the star of the menu. It’s available in 8 recipes, so varied that the choice may be hard. The bao bun is made with Extra White flour from Hong Kong and in addition to its original white, it can be black thanks to cuttlefish ink or red with paprika. And to make everyone happy, the menu includes vegan and vegetarian bao burgers.
Gourmet foodies loving tasty burgers will fall for the Bao Sukiyaki with its white bao bun, marinated beef, candied onion, tomato purée, spinach sprouts and very generous gorgonzola twisting the whole burger. As for the culinary adventurers, they will go for the gustative experience provided by the Red bun. Under its paprika red hat, this bao burger offers a genuine cocktail of flavors: tuna steak, fenugreek, candied onion, homemade tomato purée, ginger purée, balsamic cream and wasabi sauce, the mix is surprising but it’s worth the risk: it’s delicious.
In terms of sides, Baoli Bao is not into common things. So, to make the right pair with your burger, we advise you the Jalapeños Cheese, slightly (really slightly) spicy and rich in cheddar, or a super sticky coconut rice topped with kidney beans and served in bamboo bark.
This surprise effect lasts all the way up to desserts with ultra-original recipes. Will you fall for the revisited matcha, litchi and yuzu tiramisu or for a raspberry and matcha panna cotta? In both cases, the experience is full of flavors.
