Bao. Fun to say. Fun to eat. And at King Bao, a Mills 50 purveyor of this trendy, if ancient, Asian steamed bun delicacy, cheap. King Bao's fluffy, doughy handhelds are beyond reasonable – $7 for a two-bao combo, $9 for three – and stuff loads of fatty, crunchy, crispy, creamy and a whole bunch of other adjectives into their tender buns. And we didn't write that sentence just to use the phrase "tender buns." Mostly. Try the Inner Harbor (Maryland-style crab cake, Old Bay mustard aioli and scallions) alongside the Glenn Rhee (marinated Korean short rib, Asian pear salsa and cilantro). Glenn Rhee, by the way, was actor Steven Yeun's Korean character on "The Walking Dead." Add a side of tots, exotic'd up with items like truffle oil, braised pork or vegan-friendly faux bacon or save room for a dessert bao. Good stuff here. Bao-wow!
