Wow Bao - Water Tower Place

Steamed Bao—a favorite portable snack throughout Asia—has quickly addicted Chicagoans within striking distance of a Wow Bao, which features these meat-and-vegetable-filled 'hot Asian buns.'

Located just inside the main entrance of Chicao's iconic Water Tower Place, Wow Bao specializes in steamed asian buns, dumplings, rice bowls, made today salads, and hearty soups.  Our Water Tower location is perfect for a snack on the go, or a full lunch or dinner.  Don't forget to get a homemade fresh ginger ale as you enjoy the sights & sounds (and shopping) of Chicago's Magnificent Mile.
