Mr Bao
Forget burgers and fries – you’ll be crazy a-bao this electric fusion spot, serving up an urban take on the classic Asian bun. The finger-lickin’ menu sees jam-packed baos on the menu alongside loaded fries, chicken wings, and an icy list of Japanese spirits, slushie cocktails, and Ballistic Beer to wash it all down. These aren’t your average fillings; Mr Bao’s offering includes peking duck baos with hoisin sauce and a burger bao packed with a beef patty and burger sauce. Boasting a vibrant atmosphere perfect for when knock off comes around, Mr Bao truly is a flavour match made in heaven!
