The Burger Bao & Beer restaurant considered a new comer Asian Fusion Restaurant situated in Auburn Road, Hawthorn.
By looking at the name, I would expect to see a place that looks like a bar!
We’re glad to be invited to have dine in experience in Burger Bao & Beer.
The look? It’s completely different from what I imagined before, the place was very clean, nice and bright with modern interior design.
It’s more like a casual fine dining place.
The atmosphere and vibe were absolutely amazing, we could hang around there for hours.
As soon as we arrived we’re warmly greeted by Jun (Co-owner) who was working on that day.
We were suggested by Jun to order the following lists:
– Sichuan Chilli Beef Burger (Angus beef, Lettuce, Tomato, onion, bacon, with sichuan chilli sauce and chipotle mayo)
Don’t get intimidated with burger name “Sichuan Chilli Beef Burger” because the level of spiciness was just mild and very acceptable for everyone.
We opted with Chinese flat bread as opposed to a traditional brioche bun.
The beef patty was slightly thin compared to other traditional western style beef patty, the taste was above the average.
The idea is to combine Western burger style with Asian flavour, suprisingly it went well!
– Homemade Pan-Fried Dumpling (pork & chives)
The Homemade Pan-Fried Dumpling (pork & chives) was very flavoursome. They were perfectly seared and weren’t greasy.
Inside, it was juicy, moist with little bit of tasty broth.
The taste was very balance and came into perfection when you eat with vinegar.
It’s not the best dumpling we’ve ever tried but it’s good one!
– Homemade Pan-Fried House Special Bao (Bun)
*Homemade special bao with chive, vermicelli, egg and pork mince)
We reckon this one was the highlight of the night.
The Pan-Fried Special Bao served warm, the bao skin was crunchy and it wasn’t greasy.
The filling was just right and it wasn’t overwhelming.
It’s one of the unique dish that you can only taste on Burger Bao and Beer.
– Chinese Green Tea
Dragon Well (Longjing Tea, Hangzhou), Longjing tea leaves are roasted early in processing (after picking) to stop the natural oxidation process. For best infusion results,
water at around 70-75 celcius degrees should be used to brew the tea leaves.
Jun was very proud to introduce the Chinese Green Tea from her city, the taste was absolutely fantastic!
Overall, we had good time having food experience in Burger Bar & Beer.
Note: We’d like to say thank you to Jun and Burger Bao’s team for the invite.
