    Get Six Pack Baos. Never get the desert baos in the same bag as the dinner baos. Get the Ginger Tea, but never the drinks they have in front of the counter. Don't use electronic order, go the cashier.

    They recently added an apple cinnamon bao to the menu. I'm not sure if they'll be on the menu forever, so I'm planning to eat a few hundred now just to be on the safe side.

    Two bao combo is the way to go. Kung pao chicken is an explosion of flavors hot and spicy up in your mouth!! Thai curry is just ok.

    Thai Curry Chicken Bao is to practically absolutely die for! Soft, moist, hot, and flavorful! Their ginger soda and ice cream is pretty top notch as well!

    Try all the meat bao. My favorite is the spicy Mongolian beef and chicken teriyaki. Their ginger ale is really ginger-y and spicy!
