Singapore, 19 August 2020 – Following the successful launch at CÉ LA VI Tokyo in 2019, CÉ LA VI has announced that the new fast and casual dining concept is now available in Singapore at the CÉ LA VI SkyBar. Guests can enjoy both signature and Singapore special juicy Baos, paired with thick-cut fries, set against the breath-taking panorama of the city skyline.
The Bao burgers offer a tantalising fusion between Asian bao and western burgers, inspired by the fluffy bao popular in Taiwan, Japan and China. The housemade Bao buns are steamed to order and seared on a hot cast iron pan on one side to achieve a crispy, caramelised interior while maintaining the soft pillowy Bao exterior. The menu draws inspiration from flavours across Asia, featuring seven tantalising Bao combinations loaded up with sustainably-sourced, antibiotic- and hormone-free ingredients.
The full BAO lineup includes the Black Angus BBQ Beef (S$16), Truffle Wagyu Beef Sukiyaki (S$22), Chicken Karaage (S$15), Salted Egg-Crispy Prawn (S$16), Tempura Sea Bass (S$18), Iberico Pork Char Siu (S$18) and vegetarian-friendly Sichuan Eggplant (S$14). The Bao burgers are perfectly complemented with hand-cut fries, accompanied by delicious dips and toppings: BBQ spice (S$10), Truffle essence with grated parmigiana (S$18) and Furikake served with a wasabi Aioli kick (S$12). Round out the meal with a selection of accompanying small bites, such as Boneless Korean Fried Chicken with crushed peanuts, sesame seeds and yoghurt (S$18) or the Crispy Pork Belly Dumplings with ginger, garlic and chilli oil (S$18).
The man behind this exciting offering, Group Executive Chef Joey Sergentakis, says, “We are delighted to roll out our Bao burger concept in Singapore after the success we’ve seen with them in Tokyo. What makes the Bao unique is the combination of different textures and techniques that balances out the flavours and creates this gastronomic East meets West fusion.”
With the Bao menu on offer at CÉ LA VI’s breezy rooftop SkyBar, guests are welcome to kick back and enjoy the flavourful offerings with crafted cocktails or refreshing beers, served up with a soundtrack of Soulful House, Nu Disco and Eclectic Grooves.
CÉ LA VI will offer a special launch promotion of a Bao and beer for S$25, with a selection of the Iberico Pork Char Siu or Sichuan Eggplant bao paired with Asahi Super Dry. BAO by CÉ LA VI is also available on Foodpanda, Grab and Oddle for self-collection or delivery.
