Nom Nom Bao is a hidden gem of an Asian eatery tucked away down Warner Street in Fortitude Valley.
A sibling for Nom Nom Korean in Bakery Lane, this cute little bolthole is all about bao – beautiful bao buns bursting with flavour.
Open daily for lunch and dinner*, customers can tuck into what are arguably Brisbane’s best bao, sip craft beer or wine and listen to K-pop in a relaxed, industrial chic setting.
The concise menu consists of soft steamed buns stuffed with tasty fillings like Korean fried chicken with Asian slaw, galbi beef with kimchi slaw, pork belly with fried shallot and hoisin sauce, and a vegetarian offering of tofu with sesame sauce and soy marinade.
There’s even a delicious dessert bao filled with matcha ice-cream and dusted with icing sugar.
Fully-licensed, diners can indulge in a glass of wine (red, white, rose or sparkling), locally-brewed Green Beacon beer on tap, or classic cocktail like cosmopolitans, martinis and mojitos.
*Opening hours correct at time of visiting in July 2018.
