Bao Bao 包宝

BaoBao (包宝) in Chinese translates to “wrapped treasure,” or in Bao Bao’s case, dumplings (jiaozi 饺子). They offer Asian-inspired comfort food, designed to satisfy both the midnight foodie and the discerning dinner diner. Bao Bao Dumpling House is the second restaurant from award-winning Executive Chef, Cara Stadler and her mother, Cecile. It was inspired by a childhood of sitting around the kitchen table bao’ing dumplings; as well as the many jiaozi guans they frequented in China. The idea was to provide a place where diners can come in for a snack or full meal, any time of day, and always have something delicious to eat.

The Maine community and Maine’s children are deeply important to Chef Stadler and the staff of Bao Bao, who inspired them to join the FEED KIDS movement. They invite guests to finish their meal with something sweet, as each dessert ordered helps connect Maine kids with the meals they need to thrive.
