If you love a soft pillowy bao bun or delicious BBQ, the newly opened Wild Tiger BBQ pop-up inside Bun’d Up in Pentagon Row needs to go on your list of spots to try near The Maxwell. It’s just a 10 minute drive away, so you can place your order online and pick it up for takeout. The menu lineup features favorites from both American and Asian BBQ traditions. Choose from appetizers, mix and match bao buns, tangy baowiches, sweets, and traditional BBQ favorites like chicken wings, a brisket platter, and sticky ribs. You’ll find delicious sweet soy or spicy Korean BBQ flavors paired with refreshing sauces and slaws throughout their menu. How about the smokey chicken wings, burnt ends, or Korean fried chicken?
If you haven’t tried bao buns, don’t miss your chance to sample these small sandwiches that melt in your mouth. Try a bao bun loaded with fried shrimp with sweet chili and crunchy shallots. Or a one with braised beef and cucumber kimchi. Prefer something sweeter? Try a bao with pork belly and pineapple slaw topped with cilantro lime. Better yet, try any 3 for $13.
