Big Bowl bottled ginger ale


Big Bowl ginger ale in a bottle

While working on a story on the cuisine of Northern China, I had the pleasure of interviewing and getting recipes from Bruce Cost, chef-partner of Lettuce Entertain You’s Asian concepts, including Big Bowl and Wow Bao. He’s a veritable master at Asian cooking, published cookbook author, damn interesting to talk to and all-around nice guy. Anyway, I was very happy to see that Big Bowl is now bottling up his fresh ginger ales, and stocking them near the carry-out section right next to the hibiscus iced tea in a can (I had a hankering for pot stickers and beef lettuce wraps after a quick visit to the Puma store). I loved the label design, and the fact that they are made with natural cane sugar. Anyone know if these are also sold in grocery stores? If not, they, and frozen Wow Bao, need to be. 6 E. Cedar, 312.640.8888

    I love Wow Bao. I generally don’t like bao, except for there. It’s my treat when I go downtown. I’ll have to try the gingerale. the packaging is great.
