Enjoy the soft, pillowy goodness of bao with a crisp beer and a generous side of nostalgia.

Tucked into an alleyway in Barangaroo is Bing’s Bao and Beer. It was brought to life in 2017 by Lotus Dining Group and brings together retro wallpaper, bao, beer, bubble tea, noodles and rice bowls. They’re a total hit on EatClub!

Inspired by Australian milk bars and the fit-outs of suburban Chinese restaurants, interior designer Melissa Collinson (whose other projects include Sake Double Bay and Madame Shanghai) created a cheerful, functional and highly-nostalgic space.

The menu is mostly Chinese with a welcome hint of Japanese. All of the dishes are easy to take away, but are best enjoyed in house with a crisp beer. The beers are easy-drinking Asian beers like Tsingtao and Asahi. They also offer Young Henrys lager, riesling on tap and refreshing cocktails.Bing's Bao and Beer | EatClubAbout the Bao:

On the menu you’ll find bao with Shanghai pork belly, served with pickled Chinese cabbage; Hoisin pulled pork with peanut crumble and cucumber-apple pickle; and salt and pepper chicken with a kimchi mayonnaise. For vegetarians, baos are filled with crispy silken tofu with pickled vegetables, peanuts and spicy miso sauce.

The bowls have a protein feature of meat, fish, or a Sriracha-maple tofu and are filled with things like with pickled vegetables and ginger, lotus chips, edamame, brown rice and more. Our favourite? It’s a classic: the King Salmon with edamame, toasted nori, spicy miso sauce, furikake and glass noodles.Check out Bing’s Bao and Beer on the EatClub app whenever you’re craving a burst flavour with a backdrop of nostalgia.
