This visually unappealing dish is as it is.. non descript, overpriced and far too simple to pass off as a meat pao.
The duck although done perfectly had its crispy skin taken off and replaced by a salty crispy breaded coating whose taste was reminiscent of chicken in a biscuit. Four measly slices of cucumber were meant to be inserted into the pao and the dipping sauce tasted like ketchup.
Added salt to the wound was a hefty $29.
If you’ve had peking duck or stewed pork belly pao please continue that tradition and skip this dish.
