What is a bao? From Food Republic, a bao or known as a steamed bun or baozi is a "complete meal conveniently packed away in a white, warm, soft bun." Or what we like to say, an amazing delicious experience.

WHAT:Explore all the different varieties of bao from traditional to creative interpretations. Each business will be serving up a variety of Asian and fusion dishes along with their baos. You can expect to see noodles, takoyaki, rice bowls, and skewers to name a few! Vegan and gluten free options will be available as well! There will also be boba and other desserts to go with your bao. Enjoy the art while you eat and drink and visit the game room!
