⇢ First Look: Portland’s new Bao Bao Dumpling House is red hot!

The sophomore effort from Food & Wine Best New Chef Cara Stadler, Bao Bao is more casual than her celebrated Brunswick restaurant, Tao Yuan. It's billed as a dumpling house (you can order plates of 6 dumplings steamed or fried) but the small menu also includes refreshing Asian salads and at least one soulful soup. Don’t miss the red bean paste buns offered upon request for dessert. They’re a fried twist on a steamed Asian classic, and sweet enough to satisfy even your strongest cravings. Open for lunch until late, the stylish dining room hums with a happy vibe. 3 1/2 STARS, JAN. 18, 2015
