Where do you source your ingredients from?

At bao • logy, our goal is to source well, responsibly and, when possible, locally with a focus on flavor and quality.  We are fortunate to work with partners in the area who are doing great work.  If you are a farmer or purveyor who shares our passion for ingredients and food, we'd love to speak with you!  Please e-mail us at hello@baology.com

Does bāo•logy offer vegetarian options?

Yes we do!  Taiwanese cuisine has a long history of vegetarianism - it is deeply rooted into the culture. Taiwan is blessed with a climate that allows for the abundant growth of fruits and vegetables.  

What if I am on a gluten free diet?

While many of the menu items are bao’d with ingredients that contain gluten, we will happily work with you to create a meal that meets your dietary needs. Here are a few suggestions for those with a gluten allergy or sensitivity:

  • Our gwa baos can be ordered with a lettuce wrap substituted for the bao. All of the proteins are gluten-free and many of the toppings are gluten-free as well

  • Unfortunately, at this time, the potstickers and ruen bings cannot be offered as a gluten-free option

  • Our sides are great gluten-free options

No, we do not use MSG.


We were fortunate to partner with Assimilation Design Lab (ADL) and their founding principle David Whipple. ADL has received numerous honors and awards for their work - including being a finalist for a James Beard Design Award and being recognized as Philadelphia’s Emerging Architect in 2016.  Their unique design approach allowed us to bring our concept to fruition and help us realize our vision. www.assimilationdesignlab.com
