BAO King’s Cross | Taiwanese steamed buns in North London
BAO have another bun in the oven.
They’re in the process of securing a space in King’s Cross’ Pancras Square – to tie in with an all-new Hoppers – which, at 6,000 combined square feet will be easily the largest site in either portfolio.
The other four locations have gradually increased in size, from a tiny street stall in Hackney, to a packed-out Soho sleeve, to a two-floor Fitzrovia flagship, all the way to a Borough Market venue with its own karaoke room.
This new spot promises to be something special (that is, huge) and will almost certainly involve their classic BAO recipe: small paper menus that you check off dishes from, which will probably include steamed buns including braised pork sprinkled with peanut powder and coriander; burger baps wrapped around soy-milk-marinated chicken with Sichuan mayo and kimchi; and sides like 40 day rump cap with aged white soy sauce.
And one of the things that we do know? There’ll be a huge single table for 12.
Take a bao, team.
NOTE: BAO King’s Cross is due to open sometime in 2020. We’ll be back with the full scoop when they do, but in the meantime you can keep an eye on their website HERE.
