Baohaus

May 04, 2016

With talks of potentially sending me back over to Taiwan for work for a few weeks, I had a craving for some Taiwanese snacks.

I first had pork belly bao during my second trip to Taiwan.  My coworker got them for us at one of the night markets we went to.  It was a small sandwich in a Taiwanese bun, only a few bites, but it was delicious.  I remembered seeing a place in the city that was reviewed on one of Anthony Bourdain's shows, Baohaus, and tried it out.  Been there a few times now.

Small place on East 14th giving off a divey vibe inside, but the people taking orders and making the food are more than happy to chat with you about their favorites and recommendations.

The Birdhaus Bao (chicken) and the Chairman Bao (pork belly).  I've tried everything on the menu so far, but my favorite is still the Chairman Bao.  Still not as good as the ones I've had in Taiwan, and definitely not as cheap, but pretty authentic.  Grab one for a snack if you're walking around in that area.

I'm hoping this Taiwan trip materializes and I get some free time.  I had always assumed I'd be taking many more trips out there for work, but unfortunately the project that was taking me out there ended.  I regret never getting any good shots of Taipei at night, as well as not one single good night shot of Taipei 101.  Not the end of the world though.  Taiwan is a great place to visit, and I could easily spend a week or two there on my own for a vacation.

Still trying to figure out where I took this picture.  I think my GPS unit wasn't working at the time, because Dazhuang is much further to the south, and I think this place was north of Taipei.
