Bao Today

Had lunch with Karen M at the Raffles Place area and she suggested trying out this new place. Luckily she got there early and started queuing for a seat first...

We decided to just order dim sum and skip the rice or noodle dishes - which we later regretted coz some of the noodles look really yummy.

The Mango and Prawn Roll $2.80 was a late order but was one of the better dishes we had. It's mango and prawns wrapped in chee cheong fun...

The Bean Sheet Shrimp Roll $2.80 was ok but unspectacular.

No way I can have dim sum without trying the Fish Roe and Pork Siew Mai $3.50 :) It was just ok too...

The other dim sum must-have for me is Deep-fried Radish Cake $2.80 -

We also tried some of their more unusual dishes : Black Sesame Bun $2.20 -

It wasn't totally filled with sesame paste as I was expecting but it was good! Sweet but not overly so.

Feeling particularly adventurous we tried the Deer Meat Bun $3.50 -

But it was pretty disappointing - there was so much pepper in the deer meat filling that you could not taste anything else.

Decent dim sum at reasonable prices. The branch here is newly open hence the queue, but the branches at Marina Square, Vivocity and United Square are less crowded. For takeaway, try the kiosk at the Tangs Basement.
