The Bao, NYC

Is it possible to get great xiao long bao outside of Chinatown?

Why yes, it is!

The Bao is a new Chinese spot that just opened up a few months back on St. Mark’s Place…

image

Specializing in… of course… soup dumplings!

image

You start ordering…

image

…and they keep stacking them up!

image

We went with three of their main varieties of xiao long bao last weekend, starting with the traditional “Kung Fu” pork dumplings…

image

Moving on to crab…

image

And finishing with the “super spicy”…

image

image

And I highly recommend that if you do visit The Bao, DO NOT MISS their Squashed Pepper & Eggplant appetizer…

image

Dumplings are having their moment, and The Bao puts them solidly in the spotlight!
