Bao Bei is run by the same people as Kissa Tanto, and like its sister restaurant, it serves very good food that you’ll have recurring dreams about, but in a more casual space. It’s one of our favorite places in town, and if you’re only in the city for a quick visit, you should go here straight away. There’s an old-school arcade game when you walk in and they serve creative takes on Chinese food, as in you can order a margarita alongside fried rice, which will come with salted egg yolk-dusted chicharrones. Don’t miss the shao bing (sesame flatbread with lamb), the bean curd skins, and the pork belly. They don’t take reservations, so go a few doors down to The Keefer Bar (more on that later) while you wait.
