Still hungry - Edit

This place does not have many vegan options (for example: 0 vegan desserts out of 7). They have 2 vegan Taiwanese burgers.

The staff is very friendly and helpful.

The sweet potato fries were very tasty and crunchy. The Taiwanese burger bread was as fluffy as my pillow however the portions are very small for the price you pay. We tried both vegan burgers and we were quite disappointed and hungry.

This is a one time option for sure.

Pros: Nice atmosphere, Good side dishes

Cons: Tiny portions, Sauces lack taste

Burger was disappointing. - Edit

The place looks really great. The people are extremely friendly but the burger is not that great... the tofu is tasteless but the sauce is quite good (until you run out of it).

Pros: Not that many options... I felt it was a one time

Cons: Not very expensive but not the cheapest option eit

Different food, friendly service - Edit

After making our way to one of the best reviewed vegan restaurants in Porto (Black Mamba Burger) and finding out it was closed for vacation, we needed a plan B for lunch, and decided to give Bao's a chance. We are glad we did it! The stuff was extremely friendly, spoke good english and were very helpful at finding out if the food was vegan for us. We both had the Tofu Bao (it was my first time) and it was delicious and fluffy, however a little bit too sweet, in case you want to order less sauce. The salad was fresh and came in a pretty plate, but our favorite for sure were de Cajun Mandioca Chips: soooo crunchy and delicious. We would probably visit them again if we're back in Porto

Pros: Cheap, different, nice atmosphere

Cons: very few options, bao was very sweet

Tasty vegan Taiwanese burgers & more - Edit

EDIT// We learned afterwards that depending on cuisine, bao buns can contain milk and butter. Please make sure to check before ordering Tofu Bao!

Tucked away in a side street, Bao's offered us so far the most tasty vegan meal in Porto. Tofu Bao, Mandioca Cajun Chips, and Salada Formosa were the already vegan options in the menu, and the staff offered to make a vegan Tofu Rice Bowl to us as well. All food we tasted was prepared with care and was very full or flavor! (If you're not too big fan of spicy food, make sure to ask the rice bowl as 'not spicy'.)

Pros: Hidden away gem, Multiple vegan options, Very friendly & helpful staff

Cons: No vegan desserts
