If you’re planning a trip to York over the summer, then you need to make sure you visit the hottest spot for street food and craft ale, Spark:York. The funky container upcycled shipping container venue has been a positive addition to the York food scene. And things have just got even better with the addition of Little Bao Boy.
The Yorkshire-based street food vendor already has a home in Leeds at North Brew Co, and the masters of the soft fluffy bao buns are set to take on the cobbled streets of York. Just what the historic needs in our eyes.
Posting to Instagram Spark:York wrote: “Big tasty news incoming people! If like us you’ve got a soft spot for those delicious Asian flavours and you’re missing that oriental twist on your visits to see us recently, THAT WAIT IS NOW OVER…nearly.
“The amazing @littlebaoboy will be joining us from early May, serving up their revered bao buns, gyozas and loaded fries. We are BUZZED about this one, so make sure you come down and show them some love for their first time in York.”
They serve a range of bao buns including our favourite their braised beef bao buns which are slathered in their secret sweet chilli marinade and cooked low and slow until it’s so tender it’ll melt in your mouth. They finish it off with cucumber, spring onion and sesame seeds, then finish it off with lashings of sriracha mayo.
They also serve KFB bao buns, which are chicken thighs with Gochuchang buttermilk, covered in a special garlic flour mix and serve them up with iceberg lettuce and riracha mayo. they also have a range of vegan baos so no one is left out.
Their sides include gyozas, garlic salt fries, and loaded fries – for the tastiest meal you’ll have this year. If that doesn’t sound like the perfect date night then we don’t know what does.
Spark:York, which has been given three more yours planning permission to operate will welcome the new vendor with open arms. The venue has a range of other street food offers plus craft ales for their bar, and is the perfect way to spend a weekend with friends and family.
Little Bao Boys in York opens in May, so keep your eyes peeled! Spark:York, 17-21 Piccadilly, York YO1 9PB
