Chinese: Bao Bao Chinese Bistro

In Springfield’s sea of Chinese-American eateries, Bao Bao Chinese Bistro stands apart. Although you’ll find local favorites like cashew chicken, kung pao beef and crab rangoon, traditional Chinese must-trys at Bao Bao include the black bean clams, seafood hot pot, salt-and-pepper fish and shrimp and squid stir fry.
