Baogel (cha siu bao + bagel)

A “baogel” (cha siu bao + bagel) is a Cantonese barbecue-pork-filled bagel. “Did you know that it’s international Baogel Day?!? It’s when Bao & Bagel fall in love” was posted on Twitter on April 12, 2016, by the restaurant Bao Down (Nashville, TN).

“#Baogel w/ #lox! For now only available in #Tampa!” was posted on Instagram on August 5, 2016, by the restaurant Ichicoro Ramen (Tampa, FL). New York City’s Black Seed Bagels announced in October 2017 that it would introduce the “baogel” to its menu in November.


Wikipedia: Cha siu bao
Cha siu bao (simplified Chinese: 叉烧包; traditional Chinese: 叉燒包; pinyin: chāshāo bāo; Cantonese Yale: chāsīu bāau) is a Cantonese barbecue-pork-filled bun (baozi). The buns are filled with barbecue-flavored cha siu pork. They are served as a type of dim sum during yum cha and are sometimes sold in Chinese bakeries. Cha siu refers to the pork filling; the word bao means “bun”.

Wikipedia: Bagel
A bagel (Yiddish: בײגל‎ beygl; Polish: bajgiel), also spelled beigel, or beygul is a bread product originating in the Jewish communities of Poland. It is traditionally shaped by hand into the form of a ring from yeasted wheat dough, roughly hand-sized, that is first boiled for a short time in water and then baked. The result is a dense, chewy, doughy interior with a browned and sometimes crisp exterior. Bagels are often topped with seeds baked on the outer crust, with the traditional ones being poppy or sesame seeds. Some may have salt sprinkled on their surface, and there are different dough types, such as whole-grain or rye.

Food & Wine
Meet the Baogel
Bao and bagels, together at last.

Charlie Heller October 25, 2017
Move over cronut, there’s a new round, baked food hybrid in town, and this one is savory. For the month of November, NYC’s Black Seed Bagel and Nom Wah Kuai are teaming up to offer a potentially revolutionary food called the Baogel, which brings together a bao bun and bagel into a combo that looks, surprisingly enough, like something that should have been around forever.

Created by Nom Wah Kaui’s Julie Cole and Black Seed’s James Beard Award-nominated head baker Dianna Daoheung, the Baogel “ will be filled with Nom Wah’s signature sweet pork belly, wrapped in Black Seed’s sesame bagel dough, and served with a side of house made chili cream cheese.”

Behold The Baogel, The Bagel & Bao Bun Mashup That Seems Inevitable When You Think About It

The latest entry comes from Black Seed Bagels and Nom Wah Kuai, two entities intimately familiar with both collaborations and food gimmicks. Dianna Daoheung, executive chef of Black Seed Bagels, and Julie Cole, of Nom Wah Kuai, are responsible for the “Baogel,” a combination of a bagel and a bao bun.

“The Baogel will be filled with Nom Wah’s signature sweet pork belly, wrapped in Black Seed’s sesame bagel dough, and served with a side of house made chili cream cheese,” the restaurants explain. The Baogel is shaped like a steamed cha siu bao with a golden exterior similar to the baked variety.

Beginning Wednesday, November 1st, the Baogel ($8.50) will be available at all three Black Seed Bagel locations, in addition to Nom Wah Kuai, which is located inside the Canal Street Market in Chinatown.
