While its quirky name is a nod to the wide variety of steamed buns (bao) available on the menu, this casual cafe offers one of the best selections of ramen in the city. Options range from the ramen-for-beginners tonkotsu to a spicy green curry broth for more experienced eaters. Courageous ramen aficionados may wish to participate in the restaurant’s ramen challenge, which awards a cash prize to anyone finishing a huge bowl of the stuff. (Enter if you dare; the fee is $45.) Fat Bao's second location in Upper Kirby serves ramen as well, but only on Monday and Tuesday evenings, so we suggest sticking with the Sugar Land spot.
