Fluffy baos, pack-a-punch Asian flavours, Masterchef-worthy desserts, and Pinterest décor: The Fatty Bao is where we’re heading for dinner.
Walk in to an absolute Asian Explosion. From the Japaneses style lanterns to the chopsticks on the menu cards to the signature salt and pepper shakers, there’s so much that will remind you of your last trip around Asia. Take a look at the walls and appreciate the Asian-inspired art. Dinner or lunch, the ambience transforms the place beautifully. Lunchtime has bright natural light flooding in while the evening lets you enjoy the Japanese-style lanterns that add a dim glow to the restaurant. Enjoy the magnificent view of Howrah Bridge and Victorial Memorial from the 8th floor. You know what's even better? The place offers stunning sunset views too!
We also love how everything is bright and colourful – the chairs, the plates and even the food! From the perfectly wrapped dim sum to the fluffy baos, these small plates and bites straight out of heaven. We love the Wild Mushroom and Truffle Oil Dim Sum – a veggie favourite, this beetroot-flavoured wrap is stuffed with over five kinds of mushroom and is a bright red colour. The Duck Nachos (loaded with shredded roast duck tofu cheese sauce and crispy duck skin) are also right up there on our list of 'can’t-miss' dishes. Also, do not miss out on the Tea Leaf Salad and the ramen bowls (one of the best in the city!).
The sushi and bao varieties are lip-smacking too! Also try the chef special Chicken Rice, Whole Salt-Baked Fish and Whole Bhetki. The Japanese Cheesecake, Sakura Sakura and Rain Drop Cake are must-haves for dessert.
