Wow Bao

N Tocus | Dec 20, 200307:14 PM

I don't recall seeing this mentioned on the board---sorry if I missed it. Lettuce Entertain You has opened Wow Bao, a carryout stand in the street lobby of Water Tower Place. There are a few tables up on the mezzanine but basically this is a carryout. The limited menu offers an interesting alternative to fast food for people trying to get shopping and errands done in a hurry. Baos (Chinese steamed buns with fillings) come in six varieties and cost $1.19; the ones I tried were tasty. There are two soups, both of them versions of hot & sour, a pad thai salad with or without chicken, and three combos of baos and soup or salad. Beverages include hot ginger tea, which sounds pretty good in the cold weather we're having. Baos are also sold freozen, I think in six-packs but I didn't look closely, and a flyer advertises catering.
