Take a Bao
That’s the cleverly named new micro concept by Eurest, designed to make the most of bao madness with lots of cool fillings.
Meat or mushroom
Baos work well with pork, beef, chicken and just about any protein, but they also work beautifully with umami-rich mushrooms for a vegetarian option, as created by Eurest’s Take a Bao.
Not just savory
Another offering from Eurest’s Take a Bao, these fried cinnamon-sugar buns with dark chocolate mousse inside are a grab-and-go-ready dessert item.
American Dining Creations used wild mushrooms and flavored-up tofu to create their version of a veggie bao with savory notes. Check out the black sesame seeds on top, another way to distinguish a bao.
And for the meat lovers in your audience, it doesn’t get much better than Asian-barbecue pulled pork wrapped in a fluffy bao, also by American Dining Creations.
Rueben mash up
Bringing a classic sandwich into the mix, American Dining Creations turned a Reuben into a bao bun, and the result is pure fusion fabulosity.
And if those previous baos sounded too good to choose from, another great thing about the bao is that it’s small enough to create a sample plate for a taste of each.
