Bao buns are a type of traditional Chinese bread that is light and fluffy with a mild, lightly sweet flavor. It is commonly used as sandwich bread to hold rich fillings such as thick-cut braised pork belly, peking duck, and moo shu chicken. Bao buns are fully cooked and just need to be briefly microwaved or steamed before use.
Bao buns are incredibly delicious and light in contrast to most other breads. It is quickly becoming the slider bread for many restaurants such as Asian fusion spots and ramen shops.
