As a fellow Taiwanese, I am proud and happy the owner decided to open Baohaus and promotes one of the very delicious Taiwanese snacks.

We tried the Chairman Bao and House Bao and they are a little smaller than the ones in Taiwan. I guess the buns they sell in NY are tinier. The meat is cooked to be tender, juicy and flavorful. In my opinion, the baos are delicious as they are. The only problem i have is it is pricey at almost $4 each. It is like 4 times the price as it is in Taiwan.

But I know the rent here is much higher, etc. So, for those who don't have a chance to eat it outside of US, I would highly recommend trying it. For other fellow Taiwanese, I would still recommend coming here to sample our country's great food invention!

Pros: Delicious, Unique

We ordered one of each, Haus, Chairman and Uncle Jesse. The cilantro and the crushed peanut brings a nostalgic taste of home. They were smaller than I'm used to seeing from Flushing. Price is a bit high for what you're getting as well (but this is Manhattan, afterall).

The sweet bao fries were really good but eating too much of it made me queasy. Also ordered a lychee drink, was disappointed it's product of Thailand, not Taiwan.

Would I come back? Probably not, seeing as I can get them in Flushing. But it's a welcome addition to LES and I would recommend friends to try this place out.

Pros: Tasty baos, free wi-fi

Cons: Limited seating area

Not to be confused with one of the many restaurants owned by Michael "Bao" Huynh, this tiny Lower East Side eatery serves up gua bao, or something like a Taiwanese burger. Wrapped in an Asian bun, the gua bao come in a couple different…
