Bao Stop, Drummoyne

Peking duck fries. XO fried chicken bowl. And the softest bao you could sink your teeth into.

Bao Stop is located in a space also shared with a car hire company and is actually a pop up, being situated in a car park only lends to their casual, weekend vibe. Deep-fried and tasty is Bao Stop’s domain and Ash remarks how the food here is the perfect hangover cure.

 


Apple sidra with strawberries, thai basil

Apple sidra is a non-alcoholic beverage, it’s like sparkling apple juice and so ideal for summertime, mixed with fresh strawberries and Thai basil.

 

               Peking duck fries

Shoestring fries topped with peking duck pieces and drizzled with a generous helping of hoi sin sauce. The duck has a good amount of fat which we all know equates to plenty of flavour.

 

              XO Fried chicken bowl

Deep-fried and crispy batter  houses some succulent chicken thigh pieces, the XO sauce is sweet and fabulously sticky.

 

               Tofu-stuffed deep-fried zucchini flowers

The zucchini flowers practically shatters as you bite into the petals, the silken tofu filling provides textural contrast whilst being inoffensive in taste.

 

                   Trifecta (any 3 bao) – fried chicken, sustainable hoki, peking duck $20


        Braised pork belly bao $7

Now we reach the aforementioned baos which were all excellent. The bao itself is a definite highlight for me and I know it’s essentially just flour and water, but it’s so soft and encases the various fillings in a nice package that fits into your palm. The only let down was the braised pork belly bao which had a thick layer of pure fat on the otherwise melt-in-your-mouth pork. I’m all for fat but would you believe that after a few bites of it combined with mayonnaise it became sickening. The other bao fared very well. Fried chicken bao – great. Peking duck with cucumber and shallots – also delicious. Deep-fried sustainable hoki – spicy, creamy and the flesh moist.

For deep-fried, crunchy textures and Asian flavours I’d highly recommend Bao Stop.
