Bao Buns. What is Bao? Why Are They So Delicious?

At Mr. Bao we are specialists in Bao. Yes, that’s a silly opening sentence, however, we must make it clear; we spend a lot of time working towards creating the ultimate Bao. We understand that you may have questions as bao is quite new to the foodie scene in Brisbane, so let’s dive deeper into what makes Bao so delicious and hopefully learn something new along the way!

Origins of Bao Buns: A Journey Through Time and Culture:

Bao Buns, or "baozi," has a rich history that traces back centuries to China. These pillowy treasures were initially created as a portable meal for travelers and workers. As they journeyed through different Asian countries, the concept evolved, giving rise to variations like the Taiwanese "gua bao" and the Vietnamese "banh bao." Today, Bao Buns have transcended their origins, becoming a beloved street food across the globe.

The Art of Crafting Bao Buns: A Balancing Act of Flavor and Texture:

Creating the perfect Bao Bun is an art that demands precision and patience. Craftsmanship begins with a soft, slightly sweet dough, kneaded and left to rise until it's airy and delicate. The artistry lies in folding and pleating the dough to create the iconic shape that cradles the sumptuous filling. When steamed, the dough becomes the canvas that beautifully contrasts with the robust flavours within, yielding a harmonious blend of textures and tastes.

Why Bao Buns Are So Irresistibly Delicious?

What's the secret behind the allure of Bao Buns? It's the marriage of contrasting elements that create an irresistible symphony. The tender, slightly chewy exterior embraces the delectable filling, forming a perfect balance between soft and substantial. The interplay of sweet and savoury notes dances on the palate, captivating taste buds with every bite. This delightful contrast, coupled with the endless possibilities of fillings, makes Bao Buns an exceptional culinary delight.
