Bao Boy has been on my list since they first announced their concept along Hong Kong street and, alright it took me awhile, but I’m glad to say I got my chubby arse there at last. Here’s their Halibut Fish & Chip Bao ($16), which I gotta say is absolutely fantastic if not for the slightly disproportionate portion of tartar sauce. Fish is sweet and utterly tender, perfectly golden, disintegrating with a slight nudge and releasing a flood of juices in every bite. I’d down a fish & chips like this any day, which really is the point isn’t it. The coleslaw was light and refreshing, lotus leaf bun was soft and fluffy (though oddly cold, like out-of-the-refrigerator kinda cold), and the housemade tartar sauce was super tasty. My only beef was they really slapped on that tartar, so much that it was completely overwhelming the fabulous fish.⁣

I just read that this concept’s a pop up that will run only till 8 Dec 2019 though, so make your reservations quick and grab yourselves some amazeballs bao! ⁣

Make a mental note of this cosy yet snazzy joint on Hong Kong Street for your next date night. From the same guys behind Butcher Boy, expect tasty buns like the Pulled Pork Banh Mi Bao ($14) where a light and fluffy Chinese bun is packed with pulled pork, a slab of pork belly, pickles and purple slaw. Vegetarians, opt for the flavourful Chickpea Falafel Bao ($12). P.s. Complete the night with with bespoke cocktails at 28 HongKong Street just three doors down!

From Bao Boy at HongKong Street; a new establishment by the folks behind CURE and Butcher Boy up at Keong Saik Road focusing on their Asian fusion offerings.

With their main emphasis on their Baos, the Pulled Pork Banh Mi Bao not only comes with pulled pork, but also an entire slab of pork belly for that extra oomph. Whilst the pork belly comes tender with a good bite, the pulled pork helps to bring a meatier flavour; itself being moist while not carrying a porky stench. Otherwise, the pickles provide a refreshing crunch and a slight zing, while the purple slaw also helps to add some texture to the entire deal; all coming in between a light and fluffy Chinese leaf bun.

Delicious! My favorite dish of the night.
