Savory Taiwanese steamed buns are the specialty of this bare-bones East Village eatery.- Google

Went to Sorriso's on a whim while on a walk - this place is a gem! They have an incredible selection of imported Italian pastas and goods. But the real star of the store is their homemade sausages. The people who work there are incredibly nice - offered me a sample of their homemade sopressata... it was so amazing that I ended up buying a half pound! We have also had their spicy italian sausages - also incredible.

I am sure the taste is wonderful, but a bite size for the price they are asking for? It is ridiculous! I drive hours to New York to support the brother, but disappointed by the outrageous price they are asking for!

Great small bao restaurant with a few seats. But the place was pretty cool and the music they have are enjoyable. The chairman bao which is the pork belly is one of my favorite baos to order. Staffs are nice, friendly and attentive. Overall great experience and concept is off the hook.

The reason the baos are as expensive as they are is because Baohaus uses "all natural, antibiotic, & hormone-free meats." When you eat here, you're eating part of Eddie Huang's philosophy towards meat production and that is the explanation for why a single piece of pork belly in a white bun costs $4.05. The pork belly in the Chairman Bao is cooked perfectly- it's tender but still toothsome. I appreciated the pickled greens on the bottom of the bao to give some textural and flavor contrast. However, the Bao was very taiwanese in style and by that, I mean SWEET. The meat was slightly sweet, the bun is slightly sweet, and then there's that ground up peanut and sugar mixture? Honestly, the pork belly by itself would be savory and awesome (maybe just a smidge underseasoned) but in combination with the rest of the bao, in my opinion, the sweetness overwhelms the delicious porkiness of the Berkshire pork belly.

When I look at Baos is not something that I want to eat. But then I do, and it's the best thing ever! Place is small, there a few tables in the back but are hard to get. It might be better to get something to go.

I was little disappointed with the quality of the Bao. I guess i got sucked in by the owner's star power, but there are much better Bao at other places that don't specialize in it, like ippudo.

I'd actually say this place deserves a 4 star rating it has. There's reviews out there on yelp that mention that highway robbery price for something that is street food in China. I agree the price is a bit steep at $4-5 per bun but that's comparing it to the street food sized portions relative to what little "street food" NYC has to offer. The price also justifies the portion cuts and the quality of pork they sell here. My chairman bao was served with a beautifully sizable slice of fatty pork. The fat melted into a nice salty sweet buttery dream. BaoHaus makes this cheap easy Chinese street comfort food into a luxury experience snack. It takes the traditional pork bun and kicks it up a modern American Chinese notch with the added cilantro punch you get after the fat melts away on your tongue.

The food is delicious. Porkbelly was on point! But the ambience is dreadful. They play music full of obscenities... there are obscene writings and graffiti everywhere. So definitely not a place to take the kiddos. I don't care how good the food is - I just don't want to be cursed at while eating it. Made me sick. Not returning.
