Former food truck chefs Amy Le and Rafael Lopez teamed up to create a menu inspired by their family's dishes. We can only imagine that these two ate very, very well, if the bao tacos, dubbed "bacos," are any indication. There's two-bites big and filled with taco ingredients like chicken and tofu.

This is hands down the best lunch in the Loop. So if you haven't gone yet, you better run. The bao tacos ("bacos") are always immensely satisfying, and you have to get the sweet potato fries with curry dipping sauce. My favorite bacos are the shrimp and chicken. I still really need to try one of their dessert bacos too. An average lunch here will set you back about $12, which is reasonable for the quality and taste of the food. I try to go once a month at the least. I hope this place sticks around forever!
