The Onion BAO-JI Now Exists In Manchester And It Sounds Absolutely Heavenly

We’re in for a taste sensation…

If you’ve ever wondered what the ultimate Chinese vs Indian foodie fusion looked like – it’s this. Encased in a fluffy, doughy Bao Bun, Wolf at the Door has invented the aptly titled Bao-ji, and we’re already drooling just looking at it.

Launching the new creation as an exciting October special, the NQ bar and restaurant has combined a deep-fried onion bhaji with mango and tomato chutney, lime pickle and, course, the Bao Bun to create the ultimate Indian-style dish – and its here to reign supreme over all over Baos. The tasty treats ring in at just £1.50 each, too, but it’s not just the vegan special that’s got us all excited.

Joining the October exclusive is the Kimchi Loaded Fries, which are topped with kimchi, vegan cheddar, sriracha mayo and sesame seeds – and the Pedro’s Pepperoni Pizza Taco, a tasty taco loaded with pepperoni, mozzarella, pizza sauce and oregano with a stuffed crust – both of which will join the Bao-ji on the menu for a limited time only and are sure to fill the Sloppy Joe-shaped hole in our lives (which left the menu just weeks ago).


And just like the rest of WATD’s foodie offerings, they’re wallet-friendly, too – with the Bao-Ji’s priced at £1.50 each, pizza tacos at £2 and the Kimchi fries just £5.

The exciting new additions follow the introduction of breakfast dishes at Wolf at the Door – which include brunch-inspired Baos and Tacos with cocktails, beers and more. Wolf at the Door is open daily from 10am-10pm under the current COVID guidelines, and can be found at 30-32 Thomas St, M4 1ER.
