When it comes to bao competitions, the only losers are those left hungry.

Two local chefs – Ceasar Zepeda of Sangria on the Burg and Teddy Liang  – are kicking off a new bao-making competition series at Sangria on the Burg on Monday, Sept. 23.

The Bao Down competition will take place every fourth Monday of the month, with part of its proceeds to benefit Culinaria, a local nonprofit dedicated to food education and culture in San Antonio.

"The competition is the main thing. We did it a month ago and I announced that I wanted to make a donation on behalf of both chefs to a cause we support," Zepeda told the Current.

The Monday night event will invite guests to taste the results for themselves, offering four chef-driven rounds, with chicken, beef, pork and veggie bao, at $5 per round.

The 'Bao Down' series winner will return next month for a show down against a chef Leo Davila of Catch the Wave. The event will take place from 5-9 p.m. Visit the event's Facebook page for more information and news updates.

A previous version of this story misstated that chef Davila would participate in the Monday night event; Davila will compete next month.
