Universal Orlando has announced that it will open an all-new quick-service food venue called Bend The Bao at Universal CityWalk on June 15.
The new venue will feature a variety of items that fuse popular Asian cuisine with diverse ingredients like crab cakes, pork belly, kimchee fried chicken, and more – creating an entirely new mash-up that “bends” the idea of a traditional bao.
The location features colorful pop art representing the creatures of the Chinese Zodiac.
The menu will feature bao buns items, like the Crab Cake Bao with Maryland-style crab cake, shredded lettuce and mustard aioli, the Duck Bao with braised duck, kimchee slaw, XO sauce, cilantro, and a five-spice aioli.
Bend The Bao will be located on the second level of Universal CityWalk, adjacent to the Universal Cinemark theatre. It replaces the Fusion Bistro Sushi which closed earlier this year.
