Eddie Huang Will Get His Chairman Bao Smackdown
After his unhappy discovery last month that a new San Francisco food truck had appropriated the name of his signature Chairman Bao pork bun, Eddie Huang may get his chance at revenge, of a sort. The Baohaus proprietor emailed us to say that a San Francisco chef has offered Huang the use of his own mobile eatery, a school bus-turned-restaurant called Le Truc, for the purposes of waging a bao throwdown. Huang plans to park next to the Chairman Bao truck, and to let nature -- or at least vengeance -- take its course. He's guessing that he'll touch down in San Francisco sometime in August, giving him plenty of time to perfect his right hook and death stare.
Baohaus Bang, pow, bao.
