Coming To Downtown Chandler This March
By Jay Kwan
The Arizona Bao and Dumpling Festival is coming to Downtown Chandler. Explore all the different varieties of baos and dumplings from traditional to creative interpretations. What is a bao? From Food Republic, a bao or known as a steamed bun or baozi is a “complete meal conveniently packed away in a white, warm, soft bun.” Or what we like to say, an amazing delicious experience. Baos are a form of dumplings and you can try different dumplings from various cultures from takoyaki to potstickers.
Follow Bao and Dumpling Festival to be kept up to date on all of the local businesses who will be coming. Tag your photos with #azbaodumpling
