Favorite Portland Snack of The Day

Char siu bao

Steamed Pork Bao from Jade Tea House

I am in LOVE with the Char Siu Bao at Jade Teahouse in Sellwood. ¬†You’ll find these hum bao on the Small Plates section of the menu, however they are anything but small. I love the fact that they are full with delicious chunks of saucy pork and onions and not just overly-doughy puffs with a scant amount of filling. I have found myself disappointed by the latter more than I should admit.

I would rank these as good as those at Yank Sing in San Francisco. Yeah. They’re that good.

They are a steal at $3 and one of my favorite snacks in Portland.
