Take a Bao in Century City

I had a really tasty dinner at Take a Bao in C City last night. The salads all looked colorful and but I figured I'd try the bao, which isn't really bao as I expected, but was a fun dinner at the mall in a food court that has never had too many good choices.

I had the pomegranate steak bao and the peanut chicken bao. The steak was a little sweeter than I expected because of the pomegranate but it was really flavorful. The veggies that came in the bao complimented the meat nicely. The chicken/peanut bao reminded me of chicken satay, which I love. The slaw that comes on the side had a great tangy dressing. They made the slaw in front of me and tossed the dressing on the spot so it wasn't soggy. Everything was made to order and I really appreciated that as I am not a cilantro fan and it looks like they use a lot of cilantro in various dishes.

I am looking forward to going back to try some of the noodle dishes and the salads. I am wondering what other hounds can suggest from the menu for me to try next.
