It's about time Lettuce Entertain You threw its hat in the food truck ring.
Just got word that we should expect the Buns on the Run mobile vehicle out on the streets within the next few weeks or so—courtesy of Wow Bao. It'll be pushing the pillowy, savory bites known as "baos" in flavors like teriyaki chicken, spicy Mongolian beef, spicy Kung Pao chicken and BBQ pork.
Look for the truck in the downtown area Monday through Friday as they sell about 750 baos (two pieces per package, so 350 boxes) and the signature bottled ginger ale in flavors of pomegranate and jasmine.
This is happening around the same time they open the fourth Wow Bao location on the first level of the 225 N. Michigan Ave. office building. The 1,000-square-foot space is modeled after the State Street store, features the regular menu and will be open Monday through Friday.
Additional locations are in the Financial District and Water Tower Place.
