Editor's Note: Welcome to a new episode of 1 Minute Meal, a series of video snapshots documenting the places, people, and foods that make New York a vibrant food community.
From the $1 peking duck bun at Flushing's Corner 28 to Taiwanese-style gua bao at Baohaus, New York's balance of bao has come a long way. So far, in fact, that The Baoery—a scrappy pop-up restaurant founded by a group of college buddies—has found success by serving their own playful takes on the bao just once a month.
This episode of 1 Minute Meal follows The Baoery on a single day of its pop-up life, telling the story through video and time-lapse photography. If you're interested in baoing down with the chefs, you can help them celebrate The Baoery's 1st anniversary on Sunday, June
16 23, at Williamsburg's Nha Toi. I recommend the fried tofu.
