    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      Cool little gourmet baozi shop, somewhat similar to BauHaus in NYC and BAO in London, run by Shanghai-returnee Alex Xu. The baos are open-style, like Taiwanese gua bao or Japanese hirata buns, which lets them come up with all kinds of interesting combinations like the Hongshao 'Carnitas' Bao (must-try) or the Cheeseburger Bao. You're encouraged to get a couple sides with your bao, such as Charred Cabbage and Scallion Oil Noodles. 2 baos and 2 sides will run you 45rmb, which'll probably fill you up just fine. Recently they've expanded the menu and brought on a lot more noodle dishes.

    • Baoism One-Year Anniversary

      Pop-up around town, Yang Jing Bang is guesting at Baoism's first birthday, doing "modern huaiyang". Huh. Expect beats, bottles, baos. The 100rmb ticket gets you 4 dishes and one drink. 5.30pm to 9.30pm. Sounds good.

    I've read too much about this place so I had to try it. I had not so much time so I had to make a take away. We have tried 2 set with 2 baos plus 2 side. 2 people. One set is really a lot for a person, it's really a lot of food. We have tried 4 of the 5 kind of baos (we avoid the tofu one, I already hate in general vegetables, eating tofu would be like killing myself), the noodles, the lotus chips, the Aubergine, the chicken as sides. Plus we take one of the rice in the menu. Overall I like the experience. The baos were pretty good and also almost all the other dishes. The Aubergines have totally no taste but it was the only dish I can really complain about. The waiter was super super polite and when she understands I was in a hurry she actually really try to make everything faster. I will be back for sure

    Stopped by since I had a meeting in XTD, very good value for money. Two baos, two sides for RMB 45 and I was full through dinner (which doesn't happy often). I had a fish (tilapia?) and the hongshao rou -- both good flavors and packed full of meat. A little soggy on the bao bread part, but that's probably because I spent 10 minutes taking pictures of it first. The xinjiang eggplant had a nice light and creamy flavor and the mapo tofu rice cake was spicy and salty - good amounts of both. Atmosphere is...spilling into a basement mall so good for lunch with friends and being alone to stuff your face. I also had the Chengdu Chai latte, if you like a spicy it's a must-order.

    There was a lot of hype surrounding BAOISM when it first opened recently. I got to visit for a later dinner last week and perhaps that was my own wrongdoing.

    Described as a "fast casual dining concept", BAOISM does serve it quickly. Service is speedy and I imagine it needs to be so for the crazy busy office crowds. Its prices are also reasonable, making it a good spot to hit up when you're looking for something tasty that won't ding the wallet.

    Unfortunately, when I went, they were out of half the menu (both mains and sides), including the sought-after Korean fried chicken bao. Black Pepper Tofu bao was a little cold and missed the mark. However, the Hong Shao Carnitas was pretty good. The scallion oil noodles side were out too, but luckily, what turned out to be my favourite side was the Lotus Root Chips - perfectly done! I also found some of the buns were soggy...sitting for too long..?

    All in all, I would give BAOISM a so-so mark - it merits a second visit, perhaps first thing in the morning when they are still stocked and things are a bit more fresh!
