Bao Noodles is a neighborhood and city favorite just minutes from the Empire State Building, that takes pride in cooking exquisite Vietnamese food.
Using the freshest ingredients, Bao Noodles is known for its traditional Vietnamese dishes like Banh Mi, Salt and Pepper Squid and Lollipop Chicken, as well as its specialty entrees, designed to seduce the eyes and satisfy the taste buds. One of the newest specialty dishes, the Soft Shell Crab, enters into another New York season at Bao.
Soft shell crabs live a short season in the New York food world. With only eight weeks of freshness, New Yorkers scoop up as much soft shell crab as they can before the crabs start to harden. Bao Noodles owners Chris Andrews and Chris Johnson venture down to Manhattan’s Chinatown fish market to be sure to snag the best crab on the market. They serve them seasoned with a touch of salt and pepper, artfully placed on a bed of Asian coleslaw. The result is a light and fresh meal, perfect for spring or summer. The dish is featured for $14.95 or as an appetizer for $9.95, both served with a glass of FREE sake, a signature of Bao Noodles.
Offering delicious meals at unbeatable prices, such as the Soft Shell Crab Banh Mi Sandwich for $8.95, Bao Noodles is raising the bar for Asian restaurants in New York City.
