Taiwanese streamed bun group Bao is to launch a new daytime dining spot in King’s Cross.
Opening in spring, the restaurant will serve Yoshoku, or Western-inspired pan-Asian cuisine.
Café Bao will be the group’s first site to offer breakfast, which will be served until midday, with dishes such as bao loaf with butter and syrup, baked ham hock congee pie, and bacon, egg, cheese, and spring onion pancakes.
Co-founder and food art director, Erchen Chang said: “The inspiration for Café Bao stemmed from Yōshoku cuisine, an interpretation of western food, seen through an Asian lens.
“This style of cooking is something that’s always resonated with us and made us feel quite nostalgic. After a recent trip to Taipei, Hong Kong and Osaka we realised we wanted to bring it to life.”
