We’re excited to be able to bring the full range of Home Bao products to JHB and these include the following:
Original Pork Dumplings and Potsticker
These are one of Wundercook’s favourites as its packed with all the traditional flavours of Taiwanese dumplings.
Juicy Vegan Dumplings and Potstickers
These dumplings are coloured green with natural spinach colourant and the home made vegetable broth really infuses this amazing aroma. They are filled with shiitake mushrooms, baby marrows, glass noodles and smoked tofu.
Ritzy Prawn Dumplings and Potsticker
These dumplings are filled with fresh prawns, minced pork and seasonal vegetables, with ginger, rice wine and oyster sauce for extra flavour. The wrappers get their sunny yellow shade from natural carrot colouring.
Sizzling Beef Potstickers
These Potstickers are filled with minced beef marinated to perfection and an extra helping of gooey, melted cheese. The wrappers get their lovely red shade from natural beetroot colouring.
Posh Prawn Dumplings
A great option for any Pescatarians out there. These dumplings are filled with the delicate flavours of fresh prawns, sesame oil, spring onions and water chestnuts. The wrappers get their sunny yellow shade from natural carrot colouring.
Coriander Chicken Dumplings
These dumplings are made from free-range chicken, coriander and water chestnuts, balanced with ginger and sesame oil. Another must try on Wundercook’s favourites list.
Made from a traditional Taiwanese recipe, these pillowy fluffy Bao Buns are the best to have on hand when you want to just whip up a gourmet meal with little effort. At Wundercook our favourite is to pair them with our Crispy Chicken filling and you can find the recipe here.
Szechuan Chili Oil
Another top favourite of ours. This home-made secret recipe is made of 10 varietals of spices and herbs, with fermented chilli to further develop the taste. We love to add this to our dipping sauces as well as any other meals we have where we’d like some additional heat.
All of Home Bao’s products arrive at your door frozen and can be cooked from freezer to dinner table in under 10 minutes. Not only is it easy and convenient to prepare each box of Dumpling or Potstickers come with a complimentary flavour pack so that you can make the one of a kind Home Bao dipping sauce.
What a great way to enjoy restaurant quality dumplings in the comfort of your own home.
