Whether you work near Chicago’s Magnificent Mile or you’re more of a frequent shopper, you may have noticed that Wow Bao opened a new, fully tech-enabled location at 200 N. Michigan Avenue. Much like the first, fully-automated Wow Bao that opened in December 2017 in the Gold Coast, the newest Wow Bao provides Chicago with fast, delicious and portable food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
This month, there is a full day to celebrate the bao. That’s right, National Bao Day is August 22 and we are celebrating with FREE lunch (up to $10) for guests at all locations, from 11:00 AM-2:00 PM.
Here are three reasons why we think the newest Wow Bao is exactly what the Mag Mile ordered.
1. It’s fast. You’re busy, we know and who’s got time to wait on food? Wow Bao provides a simple streamlined process with the goal of speed and convenience. All you have to do is place your order using the Wow Bao app or self-service kiosk, follow the animated screens while it’s being made, pick it up at the cubby assigned by the screen, and enjoy your freshly steamed bao we know you’ve been craving all day.
2. We serve delicious, portable food. This new location features a full menu of hot Asian steamed buns, pot stickers, and rice and noodle bowls, to enjoy as you stroll through Downtown Chicago.
3. Food should be fun! Guests are loving the animated bao character on the digital cubby windows, plus kids love watching the action unfold. Go ahead, take an Insta-story!
Wow Bao’s 200 N. Michigan Avenue location is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner on Monday – Friday from 8 AM – 10 PM, Saturday for lunch and dinner from 11 AM – 10 PM and Sunday for lunch and dinner from 11 AM – 9 PM. Check out the Wow Bao menu here.
