Baos Hog is a Vietnamese restaurant in Garden Grove. The best bao sandwich you could have at Baos Hog is the Bolsa, in whih a slice of roasted pork belly as thick as a ream of paper comes with the crackle of skin still attached. The Vietnamese call it heo quay; the Filipinos will say it’s lechon kawale. But all you need to know is that it’s soft, fatty, crispy—everything you expect and hope a piece of pork belly could be. In the sandwich, it’s embraced by the warm hug of that bun and flanked by litany of toppings, including cucumber, pickled red onions, pickled carrots, fried shallots, curls of scallions, smears of hoisin and a really good Sriracha garlic mayo.
