Banh Bao Burger at Creasian Restaurant, Berlin

Banh Bao is love

I am completely smitten by the overall presentation of Creasian! I love the interior, , the ambience, the mangas displayed and how the Bao Burgers look.

What are Bao Burgers?

Bao Burger are a fusion between the Vietnamese Bánh Bao and a burger. Bánh Bao are Vietnamese buns made out of sweet dough for the outer shell. Nestled at the center of their tender envelope, a salty filling (traditionally pork and veggies) or sweet (red beans or black sesame for example) are steamed and cooked. And to increase the pleasure, it is highly recommended to eat them with your hands.

In Vietnam Banh Bao is eaten for breakfast. The bun is steamed before eaten. Banh Bao is also one of the 10 things you should definitely try when you are in Vietnam! I love these white plump mouthfuls! The slightly sweet bun fits – unlike you would expect – really excellent with the hearty and spicy meat stuffing. Tell me if you want my family’s recipe!

Our Order

I don’t think I need to write much actually since the pictures speak for themselves in my opinion. Let me try to form some sentences though:

A few weeks ago I went to Creasia since I had a groupon code (praise groupon btw. I love the page) for two Banh Bao Burger. The location is easily accesable, lying in the heart of Berlin at Hackerscher Markt. I was quiete excited to see the interior I’ve admired from photos. And I was not dissapointed: This restaurant is beautiful!

We had the classic banh bao burger and the vegan version with seitan. Our order came fast. The food is fresh and –oh my, the burger looked so good on its own already but with the interior in the background everything blended together and created a perfect scene. It results in this modern but also traditionall and authentic tranquil scene you can see on the photos.

My vegan burger was good, but a tad bit too sweet for me. Furthermore, the banh bao bun was hard to cut through with the knife. Not sure if the knife or the bread is the culprit here.

I love the overall presentation of this place! Without the groupon code the food is expensive though.
