Best Thing We Ate: Baoburg's Duck Breast Noodle

By Zagat Staff  |  November 5, 2013

With a menu to mirror its cozy size, Baoburg's dinner options are short but incredibly sweet. The roster features a mash-up of Spanish and Asian cuisines, with items like roasted octopus legs and veal stew. Yet sometimes, all you really need is a simple dish to feel content. So on a recent evening with a chill in the air, the seared duck breast noodle warmed our hearts and taste buds. The juicy fowl sits atop a bed of nicely textured ramen noodles, with bok choy, mushrooms and daikon swimming in the rich brown broth, and the whole combination has a soul-soothing quality when it's cold out. Though the restaurant features bao in the name, the steamed buns are only available during brunch. So, if you’re looking for a nighttime pick-me-up, it’s best to opt for a dish you can’t pick up with your hands. -Billy Lyons
