The journey in Hong Kong is endless when it comes to culinary. In addition to noodles or dim sum, we can also enjoy other types of food. Not only classic culinary but also trend-following and modern food is also available. One of recommended i visited this time is Little Bao, inspired by traditional Hong Kong food is bao, steamed bun with meat or other ingredients.
Well, Little Bao is creating innovation from this bao into a modern culinary that carries the concept of comfort food with a minimalist place. My visit at night, because they do operate from 6.00pm on weekdays and they would run all day on weekend.
Once there, I had to wait about 45 minutes to get a seat. Other than minimalist place, enthusiastic visitors are very crowded until all seats been occupied. In fact, I did wait nearly an hour to get into the restaurant.
With a minimalist bar concept, with dominant green tosca color, then rustic theme lamp lights hanging. There are only seats containing about 20 people. Available chairs overlooking the bar station and also to the opposite side to the wall. With a crowded visitor so commonplace we will sit next to each other.
Main menu offered here is steamed bao, bun served with a choice of pork, chicken, fish & vegetarian. This time, I tried two pretty interesting menus: Pork Belly Bao, bun bread with pork, leek, dressing & hoisim sauce. The aroma is so fragrant, the savory taste of pork blends perfectly with other elements, other than that, the bun with a solid and soft taste is so perfect.
Then I also tried Little Bao with Szechuan Fried Chicken. Bao served with chopped crispy chicken, chinese black vinegar, szechuan mayo and coleslaw. I love this menu, the texture of chicken crispy with a really savory sauce. It will certainly be more enjoyable if enjoyed while warm.
Besides bao, I also tried dessert as the last dish of my dinner this time. With a simple dessert, green tea ice cream. But here, the ice cream served with a bun mini burger is beautiful and has a crisp texture. The taste of ice cream is just fine to me, but the sweetness fits my tongue.
For the price offered is pretty normal with restaurants in Hong Kong. It's just that I think the servings are quite small, but according to Little Bao's own concept that they offer comfort food that can practically take away. Although the price of 70s HKD still enthusiasm visitors did not stop coming even late at night.
