Tasty steamed buns combined with meat, fish, vegetables or sweets at Fat Bao Houston
I must admit that I’m not exactly a ‘coinnaisseur’ when it comes to baos; with my visit to Fat Bao I tasted these freshly prepared steamed buns for the first time. But boy have I been missing out! The combination of a soft steamed bun with pork belly, salmon, tuna, or another filling appeared to be simply delicious.
At Fat Bao on Kirby they serve 16 different savory baos. I loved the Pepper Tuna with avocado, pear, and honey wasabi sauce and the traditional New Yorker with salmon, avocado, and green onions. If you’re a bit of a daredevil, you can choose the Crab Daddy that comes with an identifiable crab. It looks like a scary creature, but I hear the taste is amazing. Also, don’t forget about their sweet baos such as the Banana Nutella and the Green Tea Ice Cream Bao. On Mondays and Tuesdays, this place also offers tasty bowls of Ramen. If you can’t make it into the loop or you’re in the mood for Ramen any other day of the week, you can also visit their other location in Sugarland.
