Le Bao

The menu offers Chinese-style bao steamed buns – both stuffed buns and open sandwiches – ramen, and other sweet and savory treats.

“Bao is a Chinese-style steamed bun. Normally they put in pork and chicken; but me, I’m doing chicken curry, Philly cheesesteak, chili, fajita, meatballs with marinara, chorizo, and a soft-boiled egg with Black Forest ham and Swiss cheese. So anything cheesy and melty, we’ll put it in there. For the sandwiches, we’ll have pork belly, tempura eggplant, cheesy egg omelet and bacon, tofu steak and fried rock shrimp. Anything that you can put in it and make a steamed-bun sandwich, that’s what I’m doing. For something sweet, we’re making mango-coconut rice, inside the steamed bun, and then we’re going to deep-fry it lightly so that it’s a little crunchy. We’ll also have s’mores, bananas Foster, and peanut butter and jelly buns. Since we’re using a lot of meat, we’re going to have a lot of meat stock – we’ll use that for the ramen.” – Jina Yoo, Feast Magazine
