To prepare for this fall's Best of Dallas® 2012 issue, we're counting down (in no particular order) our 100 Favorite Dishes. If there's a dish you think we need to try, leave it in the comments, or email me.

The steamed buns at Howard Wang's Uptown are made in-house daily, and it shows; they're light and fluffy and yielding, housing a thick, luscious slab of unctuous pork belly. A few thin shreds of scallion tucked into the bun add a fresh, cool crunch, while a spoonful of tangy-sweet hoisin adds depth and richness. An order is only two buns, so you'd better be quick with those chopsticks -- but since they're only $6, you can always opt for another round.
