Boa-Bao es el restaurante asiático por excelencia en Barcelona. La historia de este restaurante empezó casi como una broma, cuando un matrimonio apasionado de la cocina asiática decidió abrir un restaurante en Lisboa. El éxito fue tal que quisieron abrir también en Oporto y, como la cosa marchaba sobre ruedas, apostaron por Barcelona. Y de este modo, Boa-Bao se ha convertido en un imprescindible. Nada más traspasar la puerta comienza un apasionante viaje por Asia. En su larga barra puedes comer, ver cómo cocinan y disfrutar de un riquísimo cóctel (esto último es imprescindible). De su carta nos quedamos con el pato pekín con hoisin, pepino y cebollino, la clásica panceta de cerdo con hoisin y verduritas encurtidas y el pollo marinado en tamarindo con pimientos.

INSIDER tip

Si te gusta el curry te volverás loco con el curry amarillo malasio con gambas ‘black tiger’. ¡Brutal!

    10 / 10 - Everything was perfect. Thinking I'll need to go back as there was a lot of interesting food and things to drink that we couldn't manage in one sitting! The food was great, but also the little things, like the menus are phenomenal. Wait staff were obviously a few shades cooler than me.

    As we are used to the indonesian kitchen in Holland it is hard to find a restaurant that 'understands' levels of spicyness. This is a very nice place with very good and when desired spicy food and great service. One to keep on our favorite list.

    Beautiful interior design, food was great - veggie bao was so tasty and we had it alongside the green curry & the indonesian curry which were both exquisite! Staff was super helpful and nice enough to let us know their reccommendations regarding the menu. - we’ll be visiting again to try the cocktails & rest of the menu!

    Food was really nice and service was good, but paying 10€ for such a small drink was not acceotable. Please cha be the size of your glasses like in other Bao Bao locación (Lisbon). Thank you!

    Thank you for your feedback Agata! See you soon hopefully :)

    Nice restaurant with reasonable prices and tasty options. The only thing that disappointed us is that they charge you 2.50€ for a 0.5 jar of water from the tap!
