What do you get when you take a classic Chinese bao and combine it with the Philippine siopao? You get an Asian-style bun that is the perfect vehicle for ingredients. And dishes that are inspired by Vietnamese, Korean, and Filipino cuisine, among others. Owners Justin Jin Park and Kevin Rosales were able to showcase the best of Asian cuisine in a portable package as they reinvented the steamed buns of their childhood into something that resembles a burger, but is very Asian in taste. Guests should try the BTS (bulgogi, tomato, and slaw) bun, longsilog (Filipino sausage) bun, and the Satay bun.

This Scottsdale institution features the best of Mexican-Asian fusion fare. Everything on their menu expertly highlights the flavours of Mexico, the Far East, and South America. As seen in dishes such as the Ahi Tuna Tostada, Lobster Mango Roll, and Tuna Tacos. It’s also the place to be after a night of revelry. So after dancing up a storm and indulging in tropical drinks while on a Scottsdale Night Club crawl, head to SumoMaya the morning after for their Bottomless Brunch. Try the Korean Fried Chicken Torta or feast on some Wagyu Steak and Eggs to wake up your taste buds, then wash it all down with Mimosas or Margaritas.
