Krog Street Market welcomes Betty Hsu’s Baos: A New Market Concept From the Culinary Team Behind Makan Restaurant
ATLANTA: Krog Street Market and Paces Properties are excited to announce a new addition to its nationally recognized Food Hall. Joining the already stellar roster at the 30,000 SF building later this fall is Betty Hsu’s Baos and the 3rd Atlanta area concept from the culinary team behind Makan Restaurant & Bar and Mama Tiger. Betty Hsu’s new 420 SF market stall (next to Jeni’s Ice Cream) will offer a selection of steamed buns, seasonal dishes and another unique addition to KSM’s already diverse group of cuisine offerings. KSM is now 97% leased.
“Our continued goal with Krog Street Market is to offer our patrons a diverse array of culinary offerings from a select group of chef’s and restaurateur’s whom are the best of the best in our city,” said David Cochran, Paces Properties President & CEO. “The addition of Betty Hsu’s Baos furthers this diversity at Krog Street Market with the addition of authentic Korean cuisine from proven owners with a track record of success.”
Betty Hsu’s Baos is the latest concept from restaurateur partners Michael Lo and George Yu, whom also will serve as Betty Hsu’s Executive Chef. The “Steamed Buns” at Makan have become an Atlanta must-eat dish, and this popularity inspired the duo to create Betty Hsu’s, a dedicated concept. They felt it was especially suited for Krog Street Market, a wildly popular culinary destination in the city. Betty Hsu’s Baos will continue to highlight Yu’s use of local, organic products and creating authentic Asian dishes.
“For Betty Hsu’s, we intend to continue sourcing locally from great producers like Grassroots Farms, Global Growers and Finch Creek Farm as we do at Makan today,” said Yu.
KSM’s patrons can expect to see Makan’s signature Pork Belly Bun and Roasted Duck Bun on Betty Hsu’s menu along with a number of new seafood and vegetarian steamed bun options.
Sara Hawker from DeCarlo Hawker Architecture & Design designed the overall concept for the stall to be reminiscent of the night markets/bazaars popular in Asian cities. Betty Hsu’s Baos is scheduled to open later this fall.
