BAO Borough | Borough Restaurant
They’re often best when you have three.
So it’s joyous news that London’s best purveyor of bao buns, BAO, have announced the opening of their third permanent site, to follow BAO Soho and BAO Fitzrovia (and their original stand at Netil Market).
It’s making its home on Borough’s Stoney Street alongside El Pastor and Arthur Hooper’s, and a stone’s throw from the market itself, which can only bode well for the new dishes they’ll be introducing.
Like its siblings, it’ll boast the same classically good looks and those cloud-like steamed buns. But very much unlike its siblings, it’ll also have a grill to serve up dishes inspired by ‘late-night commuter food’ across Asia; a noodle menu served only after 9.30pm; a grab-and-go hatch for buns and small snacks… and a basement karaoke den.
With space for up to 12, you’ll be able to hire it out for 2 hours a pop, while the servers bring down special party platters of BAO classics to see you through.
We’re calling it… kabaoke.
NOTE: BAO Borough is set to open in Spring 2019. We’ll be back with the full scoop when they do, but in the meantime you can follow them on instagram HERE.
