Asian: 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 is 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!
Local Expert A.D. Thompson Says:
Asian: "Vegan? Yes you can. Between the Fakenit Taters (with tofu bacon) and the Veganville bao (crispy tofu, shallot ginger & pepper relish), veg-heads can enjoy the spoils while their friends scarf down the pork belly."
Best for Asian Because: Traditional (and now trendy) Asian staples served with modern flair and a free side of fun. Wallet friendly to boot!
