TAKE A BAO
If the need for speed is important for your lunch-time snack but you don’t want the calorie fest that most sandwich shops sell, head to Yakitori #1 in Cardiff Bay for a much healthier and tastier option. They’ve just launched a ‘Bao’ (pronounced Bow) menu specifically for lunchers on the go. It’s an Asian style healthy ‘burger’, that’s light but full of flavour and with all the nutrition needed to see you power through to dinner time.
Choose from one of four fillings beef, grilled chicken teriyaki, Hoi Sin duck and Panko crispy chicken all with wasabi mayo, sesame salad and crispy vegetables served in a light and fluffy bun. Having tried them, RedHanded can attest to their scrumptiousness – how can something so healthy taste so good?
In the evening there’s still a full a la carte menu with a range of ultrahealthy and delicious Japanese dishes. The big news is the arrival of a new head chef. Cornelius hails from Tokyo Hut, arguably Denmark’s most famous and best Japanese restaurant, where he was head chef for 8 years. Already a great restaurant, expect Yakitori #1 to be taken to new levels of excellence in terms of creative flair, imagination and taste as he puts his stamp on what will be a vibrant and fun menu.
