Bao buns are a highlight at Universal’s Aventura Hotel.
After a long day in the parks, I like to head up to Bar 17 Bistro, the rooftop bar and restaurant at Universal’s Aventura Hotel.
The view is incredible — you can see everything from downtown Orlando to Disney World.
With my drink, I love to get the three bao buns ($18), which come with a choice of Mongolian beef, roasted mushroom and veggies, or pork belly. I chose two Mongolian beef and one pork belly.
The beef was flavorful and I loved how soft the actual bun was. Asian pear added a slight crunch and sweetness that brought the dish to life.
The pork belly was nicely cooked and most of the fat had rendered out of the piece I had, leaving it super crispy. The spicy aioli added a kick to each bite, but the cucumber cooled my mouth down quickly.
