Sophistication has reached a whole new level at Bao team’s latest venture, immersing diners into the delicate world of Taiwanese teahouses from the 30s: swooning Art Déco vibes by BraddyWilliams Studio (dark wooden panel walls, celadon green and powder pink seats, marble floor), tea kiosks, brilliant tiny solo tables and private mahjong rooms.
The small delicate plates flutter about between two sips of ceremonial tea or paired whisky: tomato and smoked eel a bit heavy on Sichuan pepper; lovely Xian Bing pan-fried pork pancakes; intriguing cuttlefish toast; comforting and fragrant Shou Pa chicken… End on a high note with the splendidly simple almond ice cream with black sesame sauce.
