King Bao

Price: $

Bao, those steamed sugar dough buns stuffed with all matter of crispy, fatty, meaty and crunchy fillings, are the new draw, but so is the low price. While the buns themselves aren’t fresh (they’re bought frozen, sorry), the meats they cradle, be it kimchi fried chicken, Korean short rib, or braised pork belly, satiate. Vegan and vegetarian options are also offered (try the bao filled with a sweet potato croquette). Tater tots are the sole side accompaniment, though, if you have room for dessert, fried bao with sweet fillings are available.
