I really wanted to like this, I really did. The combination of Bao Haus being a Taiwanese second gen thing through Eddie Huang, the owner, and his family, made it kind of a motherland connection.

This wasn’t my first time at Bao Haus. I’ve probably been here a handful of times with different people, ordering different items off the menu. Being the 14 street location, I walk past it almost every day. And every day I tell myself, “I might try it again.” because I really want to rave about it like I rave about Totto or Milkbar or Tacombi. I believe in second chances, but I’ve given Bao Haus plenty.
