New to the neighborhood, but not to NYC, is Chef Suchanan Aksornnan’s Baoburg. Recently named one of New York’s most badass female chefs by Thrillist, the creations at Baoburg live up to the hype. I stopped by late on a recent week night, and the tiny restaurant was pretty packed. The décor is cute and charming, very floral. Despite it being late, the service was excellent.
I started off with a tall, cold pint of Sapporo. For my main course, I tried the duck ramen at the recommendation of my server. Spicy, the broth was rich and delicious. The duck was juicy and tender. Of course, the fresh ramen noodles can’t be beat. On a surprisingly cool summer evening, this delectable treat hit the spot.
I can’t wait to come back soon with friends to try more of a variety of dishes and the infamous bao.
