Baozi Inn is a typical Chinese restaurant specialised in Northern Chinese Cuisine, in the middle of China town in London.
I came across this restaurant thanks to my friends, which came here several times.
I ate here on a Saturday night, and I had to queue for about half an hour to have a table. Unfortunately they don’t take reservations, but I must say it’s worth to wait even longer, as this is a 2 star Michelin guide restaurant and as soon as you start to eat your first dish you understand why.
The menu offers specialities from the north of China and I must admit I never heard of at least half of the dishes in the menu even if I’m a frequent Chinese food eater. You will find many types of noodles, dumplings, fish and meat skewers, rice dishes and more.
The speciality of Baozi Inn is the Baozi, a steamed bun with a variety of stuffings. It’s one of the most ubiquitous foods of northern China.
The one I tried, the House special, had a chicken based stuffing and was blissful!
You could also try the Pork Baozi stuffed with juicy minced pork and onion or the Egg Baozi stuffed with a colourful mix of egg, Chinese chives and carrot.
A full Baozi could satiate you, so perhaps you could eat one in two… otherwise you won’t have space to try other delicacies, which are many!
I completed my dinner with a tasty Sichuanese Spicy Beef Noodles, another house special. It’s a fresh wheat noodles in soup topped with red-braised beef in bamboo shoot stew, laced with chilly, Sichuan pepper and aromatic spices. Celestial!
If you like Chinese food, it’s an obligatory stop, you won’t be disappointed.
My only negative remark is the unpleasant staff, a bit too harsh.
