Belly Bao: Asian Tacos and Fried Chicken?
The Good God club (now Plan B) didn’t survive but the Belly Bao kitchen located in this Liverpool Street night club did.
HANDMADE STEAMED BUNS ~$7 each
The bao dough was soft and had the right amount of give. Any sort of toppings would taste better on this foundation of goodness.
The toppings are up to the diner’s preference. The pork belly was the highlight with succulent meat and the deep fried soft shell crab with coriander and chili aioli was the most underwhelming. The slow braised beef rib was delicious too.
BELLY BAO CHICKEN ~$25 for 1 chicken
BBC crunchy Fried Chicken
The worst part of the meal was the fried chicken. Unlike the technique used for the baos, the chicken was very disappointing. The batter was too thin making the crumb very grainy instead of crunchy. The flavour was below-par.
How many baos will you need to order? at least 3 to be satisfied. Avoid the fried chicken as it is average at best. Overall it is 3/5 experience considering it is kind of a dodgy nightclub, the value and the fried chicken disaster. If I had the baos alone, it would have been a 4/5 rating.
