Lower prices at Baohaus!

Hey all,

A very recent (and massive) price cut at Baohaus finally caused me to give the place a shot over the weekend. I was surprised by the size and layout of the Rivington location, but it's loaded with character. Great staff and some of the best Taiwanese snacks I've had in NYC. I sampled the Chairman Bao, the chicken bao and the bao fries.

The Chairman was definitely a lot better than the chicken bao, but I enjoyed both. The flavor and texture of the pork belly itself was excellent. Really nice melt in your mouth fattiness.

The bao fries were similarly awesome; get them with both sauces. One of the most addictive things I've ever had after plenty of drinking on a weekend night.

Don't pass up the off menu mayo bao!

  1. What did you pay for your food? I just checked the online menu, and I see no evidence of a price cut, massive or otherwise. The Uncle Jesse was $3.50 when I had it some months ago; according to Baohaus' website, it's still $3.50.

      Was wondering the same thing. It was always reasonably priced and I'd be very surprised if they dropped their prices.

      What is a mayo bao?

        Eater covered this too:

        "Eddie Huang has cut prices at both locations of BaoHaus. He tells Eater: "With two stores and more volume we can offer every thing at almost a dollar less." Now, all of the buns are under $4 and many are $3 or less."

        I dunno, I wasn't impressed before, but maybe I'll give it another shot at the slightly lower price point.
