Bao Wow at Fat Bao in Upper Kirby

Bao Wow at Fat Bao in Upper Kirby

The bao at Fat Bao are indeed fat. The puffy, oval-shaped steamed pancakes — the type that fold over, not the type of bao that contain hot soup or char siu pork — are nearly as good as my go-to favorites at Yummy Kitchen in Chinatown, whose popular gua bao I hold as the gold standard here in Houston. The yeasty dough at Fat Bao never gets gummy, but stays fine and fluffy to the last bite. Read more in this week's cafe review. PHOTOS BY TROY FIELDS
