617 E. Central Blvd in Thornton Park, Downtown Orlando
Last night, Tony and were conflicted on how to spend our Friday night date night. We planned to have a light dinner followed by painting at a local paint-your-own-pottery studio. This plan included leaving our puppy, Bagel, in her crate for a few hours. Fine. No?
No. Puppy must come everywhere with us.
Hello, seperation anxiety.
We ended up walking to a new restaurant in our neighborhood and enjoying a lovely patio-dining experience – pup in tow. The Baoery opened about a month ago and features fresh and local asian fare with an urbane vibe. The menu includes plenty of vegan/vegetarian options. It’s a perfect date night spot for the omnivore and veghead couple.
TOFU RAMEN, Assorted Vegetables, Tofu, Lemongrass-Chili Broth (vegan if egg is omitted)
The bao bun was the most interesting dish. If you’re like me, you’ve never heard of a bao bun. Naturally, curiosity drove me to order one. It was definitely a new taste – it was light, puffy and fresh. If you make it to Baoery, and you should, it is a must try. Tony and I (and Bagel) will definitely be repeat customers.
Welcome to the neighborhood, Baoery!
