BaoBao 包宝 in Chinese translates to “wrapped treasure”, or in our case, dumplings (jiaozi 饺子), served in a historic townhouse in Portland’s West End. We offer Asian inspired comfort food, designed to satisfy both the midnight foodie, or discerning dinner diner. Our core menu is supplemented with ever-changing daily specials and a wide variety of teas, beers, wines and specialty cocktails.
BaoBao is the second restaurant from award-winning Executive Chef Cara Stadler and her mother, Cecile. It was inspired by a childhood of sitting around the kitchen table bao’ing dumplings; as well as the many jiaozi guans we frequented in China. The idea was to provide a place where you can come in for a snack or full meal, any time of day, and always have something delicious to eat. BaoBao has something for everyone, from children to gourmands. Open five days a week, BaoBao’s “wrapped treasures” are guaranteed to delight!
