Drum rolls… Petit Bao team has opened a new restaurant in Paris: Gros Bao, near the Canal Saint-Martin.

Big news for foodies who have been delighted by Petit Bao, the eatery in Paris 2nd arrondissement that – since it opened in 2019 – has been giving Shanghai cuisine pride of place. Petit Bao team is opening a new place in town.

Called Gros Bao, this new restaurant opened a few weeks only. Set a stone’s throw from the Canal Saint-Martin, Quai de Jemmapes, Gros Bao has been delighting many foodies on 350sqm – as the queue in front of the restaurant shows!

Designed by Mur.Mur architects, the décor is inspired by kitsch Chinese restaurant but with a modern touch and some Hong-Kong inspiration. On the ground floor, a large bao counter and a bar with many drafts for natural wines and craft beers by Deck & Donohue. On the first floor, a terrace with views on the Canal Saint-Martin. Beautiful moments can be expected.

And on the menu – since it is why you are here – we have great Chinese cuisine classics and dishes to share on the iconic turning tables; and two big specialties: big baos heartily filled (two already featured on Petit Bao menu, and a new one, the Char Siu Bao – €8 for both) filled with braised pork and Peking duck (€30 for half the duck) which recipe is kept secret. To enjoy rolled in a small flatbread along with vegetables. So good!

Another original dish, the Lion head meatballs (€12) based on free range minced pork as juicy as the duck, and the Lu Rou Fan Taiwan Style (€6) flavored rice with braised pork, soy-sauce marinated eggs and pickled mustard leaves. Close your eyes and go for the eggplants as a starter, marinated in garlic vinaigrette (€4) fresh and a bit sour.

Moving on to desserts, Gros Bao provides three. As for us, we went for the crunchy baozi (€4) and the fried baos (€4) to dip in condensed milk. Yummy!

An address to try this summer!
