Sometimes simpler is just better. That’s definitely the case down at Baohaus, the tiny new order-at-the-counter shop in Chinatown’s Far East Plaza. Serving only four different kinds of baos (fried chicken, pork belly, fish, and tofu) and taro root fries (slightly crunchier than regular fries, but maybe more delicious), you could order the entire menu here for under $20 for lunch and finish it all without feeling like you need to sleep for the rest of the day. The food is also all pretty fantastic, so order away without worry.
