I love the move "Sideways" which is an early movie about wine and wine culture so as part of the move they make their way up the CA coast and I believe they mention passing by Santa Barbara so if Jennifer & I make a trip like that, we'll be sure to visit Secret Bao, which is noted as a Santa Barbara's hidden gem where the bao buns are anything but a secret, thanks to a feature on Guy Fieri's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives." Nestled in the heart of sunny California, this culinary oasis is a flavorful sanctuary that older men and women, families, and foodies flock to for a taste of something truly special.

Guy Fieri, the spirited connoisseur of all things bold and delicious, couldn’t resist the call of Secret Bao. On "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," he sailed through this mom-and-pop shop, diving into a flavortown fiesta of buns bursting with creativity. From the tender pork belly bao with its tangy sauce to the umami-packed mushroom bao, every bite is a harmonious blend of tradition and imagination.

The joy at Secret Bao is as palpable as the happiness in sharing a meal with loved ones. Each bao is a conversation starter, a delicious enigma wrapped in dough that brings together friends and family on a savory sojourn. This isn’t just a meal; it's an experience, a cherished memory in the making under the California sun.
