The newest of Lettuce Entertain You's chain of Chinese-style steamed bun carryout shops doesn't tinker with success. You'll find the same fluffy bao stuffed with sweet, dark-red barbecue pork, spicy Mongolian beef or Thai curry chicken, and even a meatless option for the veg-heads as well as breakfast bao for that morning commute.

I came here to get food to go before heading to Jay Prtizker to watch a film. I was a little overwhelmed with the menu and ordering just because there was a very quickly forming line. However, we ordered quite a bit from the menu. The chocolate baos are very good. I thought the potstickers were the best of everything we got. I found the food very reasonably priced and the service was fast. 


The bowls are delicious and it is always a good choice to get a bao to go with it. I prefer any of the spicy dishes at Wow Bao but if you're in the mood for dessert, try a chocolate bao. The food is filling and very reasonably priced for fast food in Chicago.

As far as quick lunch options go, Wow Bao is a good one! The lunch combo is a great deal, be sure to get the potstickers—the sesame mustard dipping sauce is my favorite.
