Fusion Bao Restaurant to Open at Universal Orlando CityWalk

June 14, 2021, 12:15 PM · A new quick service restaurant is opening at Universal Orlando's CityWalk tomorrow.

Bend The Bao is an original Asian fusion concept from Universal's culinary team, featuring a variety of ingredients from around the world in steamed filled buns.

Ingredients will include crab cakes, pork belly, kimchee fried chicken and more, "creating an entirely new mash-up that 'bends' the idea of a traditional bao," Universal said in its press release.

Bend The Bao opens June 15 in the former Fusion Bistro Sushi & Sake location on the second level at Universal CityWalk, next to the theaters.

This is awesome. Not sure if they'll be as good as the bao locations outside of CW like King Bao, especially since Morimoto has removed them from the menu, but still worth the try.

if it's the same recipe from the rooftop bar at the aventura hotel that features bao rolls as an appetizer, they are absolutely fantastic!...i will be stopping there on my next visit!
