Wow Bao's ghost kitchen delivers steamed buns from West Allis
On this week's edition of This Bites, we've got some bao news to talk about, as well as some news about a really cool urban farm called Hundred Acre. And we close the episode talking about a new Korean fried chicken spot.
OnMilwaukee announced a ghost kitchen called Wow Bao has opened inside the Fazoli’s at 10833 W. Greenfield Ave. A bao, of course, is a delicious steamed bun, and they come with fillings including teriyaki chicken, bbq pork, Mongolian beef and, for those who like America-style fillings, coconut custard and cheeseburger.
The kitchen, which delivers through services like GrubHub and Doordash, also serves teriyaki bowls and potstickers.
Hundred Acre urban farm comes to the 30th Street Industrial Corridor
Milwaukee's Century City Business Park is about to welcome a new indoor urban farm. Hundred Acre will grow fresh greens, including spring mix and baby kale, in an industrial building at 3945 N. 31st St.
"Hundred Acre's greens will be grown without pesticides or herbicides," reports the Journal Sentinel. "They will be available year-round and harvested weekly. The environmentally sustainable farm’s goal is to improve access to fresh, healthy food while helping revitalize the surrounding 30th Street Industrial Corridor."
We also talk about Chickfun, a counter-service restaurant that opened last year on Highway 100 in Hales Corners. It specializes in Korean fried-chicken but also has Japanese dishes and Korean rice rolls.
Hear us talk about all that on this week's episode below.
