From the family who made Tokyo Tempura comes another original grab-and-go concept, the Comrade Bao! You may have heard about Comrade Bao and thought are they offering xiao long bao or siopao like what most people think? Well let us guide you to the right path as to what Comrade Bao is serving, yes they do serve a bao, but no, not a xiao long bao.
Comrade Bao offers Cuapao, steamed , open-faced buns filled with meat and vegetables. So what is a cuapao anyway? It is like a sandwich, but instead of bread, you get to sink your teeth into a soft steamed bun stuffed with a variety of Asian fillings that is the right blend of sweet and savory, mingling with just the right amount of tartness from the pickled mustard. Cuapao is commonly served only in restaurants where it is not even highlighted.
Now Cuapao is the star of Comrade Bao, a cart-operation selling these steaming hot goodies. Launched just a few months ago and people have been swarming , wanting to have a taste of this newly found craze.
Comrade Bao comes in three oh-so-yummy variants! There is no denying that the cuapao actually is a Chinese recipe, but at Comrade Bao , you get a fusion of Asian flavors because its three variants are Chicken Teriyaki, Shredded Beef Pares, and Liempo Tim!
For just Php 69, you will be able to fill yourself up with Comrade Bao’s 7-inch cuapao variant of your choice; but if you think you need to have more fuel to go about your day then you are to absolutely love their Buy1Take1 offering for only Php 99 which gives you two pieces of their sumptuous 5-inch cuapao. Since Filipinos are a rice people, Comrade Bao also carries rice meals: Beef Pares (Php 75), Chicken Teriyaki (Php 69), and Liempotim (Php 59)!
So much bang for your buck! What more can you ask for!
