We have a lot of friends who are completely addicted to Wow Bao, the Lettuce Entertain You Asian bun franchise with five locations around Chicagoland. For those people, life just got a lot better, as Wow Bao buns are now available at your neighborhood Jewel-Osco.

This news is actually not quite new, as the release started in mid-February. Apparently we're slightly behind on our bun news. In any case, the frozen bao are now available in some, but not all flavors (including Teriyaki Chicken, BBQ Pork and Whole Wheat Edamame) at three different Jewel locations. The three Jewel stores are located at: 2940 N. Ashland, 370 N. Desplaines and 3630 N. Southport.

If you're not a Jewel fan, the buns are also available at five Sunset food locations. Check here for more details.
