Tomorrow, Michael "Bao" Huynh will open his latest pun-tastic spot, BaoBQ, which is surprisingly not one of our suggestions for potential Bao-themed concepts. The menu, which you can see below, is a straightforward collection of Asian-inspired dishes like Thai Som Tam Salad, Bun Thit Nuong, and Spare-Rib "Bulgugi." A BaoBQ Banh Mi makes the cut, too. Hours are 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. during the week, with the closing time pushed back to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Plus, they’ll deliver. Take a look at the full menu, then check out some shots of the space and the food, straight ahead.
