RiceBox is putting a unique twist on the classic Char Siu Bao! Their pillowy soft almond milk buns are filled with their signature char siu bbq pork (which was voted “Best Char Siu” by Los Angeles Magazine in 2020) along with plenty of gooey Monterey Jack cheese.
Downtown LA’s RiceBox is a labor of love for its owners, the husband-and-wife duo of Leo and Lydia Lee. Together, they’re using Lydia’s grandfather’s recipes and a whole lot of culinary know-how to redefine what classic Cantonese BBQ is and can be. At RiceBox, they’re cooking with antibiotic and hormone-free pork, organic and free-range poultry, and produce from local farms and sustainable practices. All sauces and seasonings are made in-house.
This package serves 6-8 people and includes 12 pieces of Cheesy BBQ Pork “Char Siu” Bao.
- Each Cheesy Char Siu Bao measures 3″ × 2″ and weighs 4 oz.
