JUICY BAO: Never coming here again! Cannot believe the rudeness of the customer service here – they forced us to order outside in the line simply because we were a large group, their faces looked like they swallowed a sour Warhead and they dropped our pan fried bao and refused to replace it. Even though the food was tasty and authentic it’s a real shame to be let down.
Signature Steamed Juicy Bao (Pork Xiao Long Bao) – $10.8
The good fat: Succulent pork filling with nice juice and a thin skin that matched my childhood tastes. Standard pricing for 8 pieces.
The bad fat: Not the right flavour in terms of the soup itself – it was lacking a little of the savoury “xian”-type Shanghai taste that is preserved in the best ones (still goes to New Shanghai so far – Shanghai Sensations)
Shanghai Pan Fried Juicy Bao – $9.8
Where the sesame at?!
The good fat: Nice crisp base from the frying pan with a juicy filling. Decent pricing and a pretty plump pork filling inside that tasted quite like the ones in Shanghai.
The bad fat: Could do with more sesame seeds for that subtle nutty kick. Also not made with the proper style that they do in Shanghai as the twist isn’t supposed to be at the top of the bun but the bottom (aesthetics I suppose)
Pork and Prawn Wonton Soup in Peanut, Chilli, and Spice Sauce – $9.8
The good fat: I actually loved these wontons a lot. They were soft with yummy prawn and pork filling inside that you could actually taste the prawns for once. The skin was smooth and the sauce was delicious. The peanut was very crispy and the chilli gave a delicious spicy kick that just went amazingly with the dish. I was actually quite amazed by the taste of this one.
The bad fat: Nothing??
SHOULD YOU GET FAT HERE?
EH – If you want dog service but good food. I actually think the food here is quite tasty and authentic without being too pricy but the service was atrocious.
FAT-O-METER: 2/5 (Only because the service was mentally scarring)
