Bao Buns. What’s not to love? They’re fun to say, fun to eat, and there are so many puns! I’m all aBAOt it!
101 by TeaHaus is a fast casual Asian fusion restaurant and they launched a new menu a few months back featuring, you guessed it, Bao Buns! Well, Bao Sliders is what they call them. Right now, they have 4 that are available with 4 more coming soon!
I had the pleasure of trying out the buns and they are all so different but equally great. Featured are the Bangkok (fried cod, coconut curry, mango salsa, avocado), Slow Cooked Pork (braised pork belly, pickled veggies, cilantro), Korean BBQ (Korean BBQ ribeye, kimchi, cheese), and Spicy Chicken (spicy fried chicken breast, haus spice, cheese, veggies). My personal favorite was the Spicy Chicken!
They are all under $5 bucks and don’t forget to grab a Mint Berry Lemonade while you’re there. They are located in north Austin in the Highland neighborhood.
Action Item: Be on the lookout for the 4 new buns launching soon. Good Morning, Elote, Tofu, and 420. Can’t wait to try them out!
