Reviews for Fat Bao

Although the "fat" might logically refer to the pudgy little steamed buns these Chinese sandwiches are folded into, it also might reasonably apply to the clientele after one too many servings of planko-fried avocado. Fat Bao's Chinese fusion is counter-service casual at its finest: baskets of curry-dusted roast cauliflower, pork belly and tofu baos and bottles of Topo Chico have a distinctly Houston feel when served together. Have a hankering for something sweet? Dessert baos are a twist on the savory version with puffy, fried breading and fillings like banana and Nutella or s'mores. Right on the moneycat.

Capitalizing on the trend of Asian fusion, this place does bao in the same way that Mexicans do tacos. Basically you have a bun (the "bao") that you fill up with certain ingredients. Their choices include duck, pork belly, softshell crab, tofu and more. Most of these come with some sort of sauce and maybe a slaw or some sort of pickled vegetable. Most will run between three dollars and five dollars each. You probably need to two to three before you're full, and you can mix and match your order to try different versions.

Get the avocado chips to share. The duck and pork belly baos you'll want all for yourself. And leave room for the fried ice cream.

The bao are scrumptious 3-bite buns stuffed with a variety of Asian style filings. Don't miss the Fat potatoes - covered with sauces & meat, a meal itself & try the avocado chips.
