Homemade Bao Buns ($8 to $10)
Broward County is not known for having an excess of good Asian restaurants.

Yes, there is a Thai sushi spot on almost every corner. And sure, it'll satiate the craving for sweet, spicy, and savory all at once, but we've been there and done that a million times over.

Just a couple of weeks ago, Bao Las Olas opened its doors with healthy homemade Asian fare right in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

We went in on a media dinner for a first look.

The restaurant focuses on sourcing high-quality meats devoid of hormones, antibiotics, and all the bad stuff. Produce is sourced locally, as much as possible (it is currently trying to expand its local provisions); and most of the menu items, including the namesake bao buns ($8 to $10) and the pork dumplings ($9), are made from scratch.

A special tasting platter. From the back: Korean Street Tacos ($10), Blue Crab Rangoon ($10), Chinese Sticky Ribs ($11), Lettuce Wraps ($11).
