Cafe Bao is Bao's King's Cross outpost and it's all about Yōshoku cuisine

What: Cafe BAO

In a nutshell: Everyone's favourite bao spot ramps it up with an all-day spot in KX

Summing it all up: For their fourth opening, in King's Cross, the folk at BAO have decided to switch things up with an all-day cafe serving breakfast for the first time and with its own bakery.

The low-down

Who cares about the C-word when we're bringing you news about the B-word? Yes the folks at BAO have just announced the details of their much-anticipated King's Cross opening.

The new restaurant will actually be a new all-day dining spot called Cafe BAO and two biggest things you need to know is that this one will be open for breakfast and will serve up baked goods too.

On the breakfast front dishes will include a BAO Loaf served with syrup and butter, Baked Ham Hock Congee Pie and A bacon, egg and cheese spring onion pancake.

If all that wasn't enough to get Londoners queueing round the block the bakery element sounds like a must-try too. That'll feature dishes like a pork pie BAOZI, a salted egg 'muffin' BAO and a BAO cookie using Pump Street Chocolate.

Founder and Food Art Director, Erchen Chang, says, “The inspiration for Cafe BAO stemmed from Yōshoku cuisine, an interpretation of western food, seen through an Asian lens. After a recent trip to Taipei, Hong Kong and Osaka we realised we wanted to bring it to life.”
