Lower prices at Baohaus!
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!

re: rose water
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.
