Specialty Dishes: Kalbi Buns, Spicy Pig Buns, Temp Veg Buns, Ba'Corn Cheese

This hip spot started as a food truck, but demand for the main menu item — steamed buns — grew so hot that the owners opened a shop. They take fluffy bao buns sourced from a Chinese baker, then stuff them with fillings inspired by classic Korean cuisine. One standout is the Kalbi. A marinade that features sesame oil and soy sauce, as well as apple cider vinegar and cola, lends sweet and tangy notes to the beef, which comes piled on an aioli-slicked bun along with fresh greens and a tempura fried onion.
