Bao Boys Bombards Montreal With Stunt Buns and Kimchi Poutine

Authentic? No. Good? Maybe.

Bao Boys

Bao Boys, a relatively new Montreal restaurant, is now slingin' the likes of General Tao, Korean beef, and sweet pork buns on Saint-Denis in the Plateau in the bygone Les Moutons Noirs. The menu at the Vietnamese-inflected, Asian fusion spot from David Huy Tran Huu and Tek-Paul Chher is a love letter, of sorts, to trashy, hybrid stunt foods. There's a Bao-o-Fish, glazed chicken wings, and deep-fried Oreo cookies. Classics are present too, however, in the form of spring rolls, vermicelli with brochettes, and tonkinoise soups.

Of Bao Boys' kimchi poutine, a blogger writes: "Pour les plus gourmands, la poutine du Kimchi est un incontournable. Copieuse à souhait, avec une toute petite touche d’exotisme, c’est un autre mariage heureux et fusionnel de cultures qui ravira vos papilles!" The restaurant's alcohol permit just came in; now you can enjoy dranks wit' dem baos.

Status: Bao Boys, 4135 Saint-Denis, (514) 507-0881, now open daily for lunch and dinner.
