Bao Bakery

Bao Bakery Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato Aside from a small selection of pastries, Bao Bakery also prominently features a lot of bao. They look like the chinese bao (similar to what you can get at the more dedicated Bao Place) except the fillings sound decidedly Filipino.
A bit strange for me since I was raised on the Chinese tradition but if you don't know bao well to begin with, think nothing of it and consider only whether it's tasty.

I tried the one that sounded the most interesting and alien to me, which was "Chicken Deluxe (Bola Bola)", with filling containing chicken, pork, ham, and salted duck egg yolk (how many animal parts can you eat in one bite?).

Taste is mediocre. The filling is OK but nothing to write home about. What Bao Bakery does offer however is a really decent amount of filling per bun--although from bun to bun you might get a bit more or less. In the pictures below I dissected two different buns from the same package.
Two buns will trump a burger in the quantity of meat you get and how filling it is, and cost you less -- maybe $5.

At the time I went, the take-home-and-steam packages were at 30% off so if you're doing take-home anyway and not afraid of a bit of steaming (or microwaving), maybe check the prices on those.
