New dishes for lunch at Little Bao

Weekday lunch hours are looking just a little more interesting with the introduction of new serving sets at Little Bao. The Flying Solo and Happy 2gether, designed for parties of one or two, both come with an optional menu with dishes at your choosing. The former features a starter, main and ice cream bao for dessert, and the latter, a duo selection of bites, savoury baos and sweet ice cream baos, along with a side of the signature Brussels sprouts and truffle fries.

Little Bao has also added some new serves to the menu, including The Chicken Royale, a whole Three Yellow Chicken that’s been brined, then sous vide and served over mashed potatoes with shiitake soy jus and chopped scallions. And the other, a 48-hour chicken rice bowl, featuring a Three Yellow Chicken thigh, marinated in a secret brine for 24 hours. Brushed in a tangy teriyaki glaze after air-dried for another 24 hours, the sweet and sticky chicken is enjoyed with spoonfuls of Japanese koshihikari rice and mini Caesar salad and pork belly bao on the side.
