Project Description

At Gongfu, Ottawa’s kickass little bao cart shop, they serve handcrafted steamed buns (bao) & a whole lot more. Chinese & Taiwanese culinary traditions are at the heart of how they craft their bao. The creativity & utility of street food inspire their playful Gongfu creations as well as their renditions of the classics.  Gongfu is dedicated to fair employment practices & responsible sourcing of their ingredients. Go in for a quick meal, or grab fresh bao to-go.
We love the Gongfu story: Tarek began by crowdfunding to start a food cart.  The Bao cart was so successful they’ve now opened a bricks & mortar location in the heart of Centretown.  All the names of the people who helped crowdfund the cart are written on the wall above the kitchen to say thank you.  The food is fabulous and the entire Gongfu team is a pleasure to know.  We had a great time filming at Gongfu!
Check out the menu in the toggles below.  We’ve tried everything on the menu and all the dishes are Awesome!

David loves the Brisket and the Fried Chicken Baos and the Turduckin Sui Mai is to die for.
The Slaw is unlike any other we’ve tasted and is a must try.
We like the window tables, but when it’s busy, as if often is,  it’s a little quieter in the booths.  Anytime is a good time to Gongfu!
