Bend the Bao at Universal CityWalk Orlando
Bend the Bao at Universal CityWalk Orlando

What is Bend the Bao?

Situated on the second floor of CityWalk, where it overlooks Hollywood Drive-In Golf, Bend the Bao is a colorful explosion of both theming (check out all that Chinese zodiac iconography!) and cuisine, fusing a disparate range of Asian tastes in bao-bun form. This quick-service eatery may just be a glorified take-out window, but there’s a good amount of seating to be found around the little venue, and the menu of delicious bao and refreshing sake more than warrants a visit (or three).

Where is Bend the Bao located?

At Universal CityWalk Orlando. Look for it up on the second level, right next to the exit of the Universal Cinemark movie theater.

Bend the Bao – hours and reservations

Bend the Bao’s hours are 10:30 am to 11:00 pm daily (though this is subject to change, of course).

What was Bend the Bao’s opening date?

June 15, 2021

Bend the Bao – OI fun fact

Bend the Bao’s location in CityWalk and the timing of its opening, in the topsy-turvy year of 2021, are both very interesting when taken in the full context of Universal history. We break it all down for you in our announcement article.
