New Asian restaurant opens in Dublin – Bao House
A new Asian restaurant bringing street food of Taiwan to Dublin opens.
Bao House is Ireland’s newest Asian eatery. Taking it’s name from Bao, a Taiwanese sandwich with origins in the Chinese Fujian province, Bao House is recreating those authentic flavours for Dublin’s city centre.
On the menu you will find braised pork belly, duck confit and fried chicken sandwiches, each just as delicious as the other. Bao House street café officially opened on April 17th 2018.
This savory Asian bite, Gua Bao, consists of a pillowy, almost marshmallow-like bun folded around a host of amazing taste and flavour combinations. You get the light airiness of the steamed bun combined with the richness of the pork or meat of your choice, accented by the crunchiness of pickled vegetables and peanuts. This simple food is ever so complex in its bold tastes.
Wynne Liu founder of the Bao House has been working in the financial district of Dublin for the past fifteen years now. And while she certainly appreciates all of the cuisines that the city has to offer, she saw a gap as far as Bao was concerned.
Bao is what the workers after a long hard day looked forward to; it is what students dreamed about while studying in class. Bao is comfort food in every sense of the term
Ms. Liu explains.
The venue focuses on flavour and quality. Only fresh ingredients sourced locally from the meat to the vegetables to the bun flour are used at Bao House. Menu offerings are made from scratch every day.
“One of the wonderful things about Bao is that given the smaller size, you don’t have to limit your options. Your palate is free to explore a wide range of combinations and pairings.”
Bao House’s Gua Bao—a phrase that translates to ‘tiger bites pig’ so named due to the shape of the bun—are certain to expose Dubliners to a whole new street food experience.
