Lunch @ Bao Dim Sum

4 years ago

This is my lunch from about two weeks ago, sorry for another belated post! My boyfriend actually treated me out for lunch this time and he chose to go to Bao Dim Sum Restaurant because he happens to be a huge fan of dim sum.

What really caught my eye upon entering the restaurant were these super cute buns in the front display (2nd picture). Just look at the panda one and the fruits! So adorable. These were actually <strong>Xiao Long Bao</strong> which is a Chinese style filled and steamed bun. Usually they have pork filling and I`ve tried these before and wasn`t a huge fan. But here they had a wide variety of fillings from sweet to savory so I wanted to try it.
I ordered three buns with the fillings cheese, ham & cheese and durian. To my surprise the cheese filling tasted sweet! But overall I didn`t enjoy these buns, sadly. I don`t know why but I the buns are just kinda dry and the steaming makes the fillings taste weird, at least to me. Not everything that looks cute tastes good.

We also ordered shrimp dumplings, two boxes of these, and siomay. I really loved the siomay at this place, so delicious! The shrimp dumplings were fantastic also, but my bf ate most of these.
For main dishes my bf got salt & pepper squid with a side of rice. This was hands down the best fried squid I`ve ever had! The portion was huge and I just loved how crispy it was.
I ordered Bakmie Hong Kong with BBQ Duck that came with a small soup on the side. The duck breast was really flavorful and along with the noodles it filled me up really good.
