Hey there, we're Bao Bao Buns!

We make baos from scratch with meticulously formulated dough and a variety of flavorful fillings. Our goal is for you to have a delicious snack or meal on hand for those times when you need something quick but don’t want to sacrifice flavor, for lengthy sit down meals with friends and family, and for everything in between.

Are baos the same thing as dumplings?

Baos, while similar to dumplings, are not dumplings. The big difference between the two is the dough. Baos are made with a fluffy (leavened) dough whereas dumpling wrappers are thinner and not fluffy. Baos are also made with sweet or savory fillings whereas dumplings usually feature savory fillings.

For cooking, baos can be steamed or pan fried for a little extra crunch on the bottom. They’re best served with a dipping sauce. Our favorite is our house chili oil.
