    Eddie brought the Haus Bao (signature certified angus skirtsteak bao, seen on Food Network's Ultimate Recipe Showdown) and Chairman Bao (Niman ranch pork belly bao) to Choice Eats. Amazing.

    A new menu item: fried chicken bao! Moist and delicious. Would love a bag of that fried chicken on it's own.

    Tried the Haus Bao & Chairman Bao. They were good, but I was underwhelmed also. Maybe it's bz my expectations were high due to all the publicity & rave reviews. Didn't like the Taiwanese root beer.

    The birdhouse nap is great. Not as heavy as the haus bao.

  • Angela W.

    Of the pork vs. the beef, I much prefer the pork. Probably has something to do with the superior fat content!

    Straight frush is a total no brainer: 3 baozi plus boiled peanuts for $13 plus 50% off on the mighty Jaffe Joffer.
