I walked up to food truck parked at bao beer garden and was greeted with smiling faces, exotic food smells and live music. I ordered char-siu chicken wings and crab Rangoon both new to the menu. They came out within 5-10 min even though they were packed. Food was hot and tasty. Check them out

This is a neighborhood gem, tucked into a lot on Mangum St. We had an easy time parking and enjoyed the oasis of the Bao and Beer Garden. The food was tasty, with fresh ingredients, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Give it a try.

Such a tasty and creative menu! I’ve loved everything I’ve ordered here, especially the veggie dumplings, crab ragoons, and literally anything involving the pork belly! The vibes are super chill and the entire space is very well-decorated — lots of green space! I definitely recommend supporting this local gem.

What a great experience! The ordering is quick and easy, the food is ridiculously good, and the beer is conveniently self-serve. The (maybe?) owner came out to see if we were enjoying ourselves and we assured her that we ABSOLUTELY were. We tried the pork belly bao buns, the bulgogi bowl, and the soup dumplings. Honestly, my only disappointment is that we were too full to try more of their delicious offerings. We will definitely be back!!

The food here is incredible. Everything we've tried is delicious, filling, and also beautifully plated (even in take out containers!) There is free street parking and picnic tables.

Definitely give this place a shot, especially if the weather is nice! My wife and I loved the Bulgogi and the dumplings, and it was definitely enough to share. Pretty good beer selection, and a fun atmosphere. Will go again!
