Hot Asian Steamed Buns

Steamed Bao—a favorite portable Chinese snack throughout Asia—has quickly addicted Chicagoans within striking distance of a Wow Bao, which features these meat-and-vegetable-filled “hot Asian buns.” Wow Bao’s quick-service menu also offers fresh Pad Thai salad, soups, and rice (or noodle) bowls topped with Teriyaki or Kung Pao chicken. Signature homemade ginger ale and Thai iced coffee is also available. Some locations offer potstickers and breakfast foods, and all have healthful and vegetarian options.
