Been watching this show on the Asian Food Channel and there is this one episode where she was eating a bao bun filled with pork belly. Can’t get that sight out of my head for weeks now. So, I decided to get some pork filled buns.
Went to Banilad Town Centre to try Pow Bao. Ordered the Pork Belly Bao (of course!) and their Chorizo Rice (just because I love chorizo).
The Chorizo Rice has the perfect balance of sweet, salty and sour. Tangy yet not too overpowering. Just enough to cut through the sweetness.
The Pork Belly Bao was less than appealing. The pork belly was all fat. The bao was soggy. Combined, the two formed this mushy texture in the mouth.
I’m giving Pow Bao a 2.5 out of 5.
Pow Bao is located at the Banilad Town Center in Cebu City.
