Prepare yourself to be completely mind blown with the out of this world food experience I am about to introduce you to... Baos! Yep, you read it right! Hamsa, an ethnic restaurant in Ciudad Juarez, provides you with some of the most fresh, innovative, and delicious food in town! You can go find them at Paseo De La Victoria #2118 A9 at Pueblito de Don Cuco.
Innovation is really important for the chef at Hamsa, Jacob R. An opportunity came up for him to open a new business, but with this new opportunity came the challenge of having to create something new and different. So if you ask Jacob how he came up with the idea of baos, his first answer will be "by accident," and yet I can grantee you this is the most delicious accident I've ever tasted.
As a plus, for all you sci-fi/fantasy lovers out there (cough* cough*, starts with St... and ends in ..rs), Hamsa really gets inspiration from and tries to incorporate this greatly loved space opera into their decorations and their menu. So not only will you enjoy their food, but their space as well.
If you're still asking yourself, what the hell are baos?! Don't worry you're probably not the only one. Baos are a Vietnamese dish that consists of a hand made steamed bun with an assortment of fillings. For Hamsa specifically, these steamed buns are filled with pulled pork in different sauces and a variety of ingredients. Even better, Hamsa has added fresh handmade noodles to their menu, which I hear are just as delicious. For desert, you can enjoy their mouthwatering Beignets, which are a French pastry super popular in New Orleans.
Don't be put off because Hamsa serves food you're probably not used to, on the contrary plan a trip to try something new (which will not disappoint you!). Personally, I recommend trying all the different baos that they offer, because they are all equally yummy. One think that you cannot miss is the beignets, they are heavenly.
Make plans this weekend to go get your dose of yumm at Hamsa!
