Today my mom and I went to the Century City Mall for some errands. We decided to have lunch in one of my favorite places ever…the Century City Mall food court. I’m not kidding, if you haven’t been to it yet, this mall has the best food court EVER. Seriously, they have everything from healthy (salads, wraps, sushi) to less healthy (Fuddrucker’s burgers, Baja Fresh, Panda Express). My mom and I decided to try a new place we had checked out on previous trips to the mall, but never tried called Take a Bao.
We had the sweet soy grilled tofu bao (glazed tofu, carmelized shitake mushrooms, marinated cucumbers, pea shoots and scallions).
And the spicy sesame citrus chicken bao (red chili & citrus glazed crispy chicken breast, pickled carrots, radish sprouts, scallions and sesame seeds.
Overall, I loved the flavors and the modern twist on traditional bao. The fillings were delicious and the rice bowl was fresh and healthy. Highly recommended! Oh and I almost forgot we had a little dessert from here afterwards:
