Bao Makers currently has this alcohol promotion whereby the restaurant is serving hot sake at 50% off for the second bottle! Hence, while you pay $20++ for the first bottle, it costs $30++ for two bottles! Note that this promotion is only available between 5 pm and 8 pm everyday so you may wish to order it before finishing your meal if you are visiting for dinner!

While some Japanese restaurants serve their sake warm, we think the sake served here should actually be classified "hot" as it is actually challenging to hold the bottom part of the glass sake bottle due to the temperature of the drink! 😰 As with most warmer sakes, the alcoholic flavour becomes stronger and we also felt that the sake drink became drier accordingly as well! Nonetheless, we thought it was a pretty refreshing drink as the taste of our baos and bonito fries were pretty heavy!

We have been to Bao Makers on a few occasions and we have never failed to be impressed by their gourmet baos! Pictured here are the 3 baos we tried today - the salted egg yolk chicken bao, the mala beef bao and the chilli crab bao!

The chilli crab bao was the best and we liked that the bao was essentially a deep-fried mantou and the restaurant was really generous with the crab meat filling. The sauce was really on point too and it tastes the same as a chilli crab dish that you can get at restaurants!

We also loved the salted egg yolk chicken bao, as the salted egg sauce was pretty concentrated and went well with the piece of fried chicken! It is also great that the sauce isn't very runny so you wouldn't get too messy eating it!

The mala beef bao, however, was a little disappointing as we felt that the mala flavour was a little too subtle and we would have loved a little more of the numbing and spicy sensation. The beef was a little tough too! 😰

Although the baos were delicious, we have to say that they were really expensive, with the chilli crab bao costing $4.50++ and the other two costing $4.30++! For the small size of the baos, we think that they were really pricey and it would be great if the baos could be bigger!

Once I entered the restaurant, I was greeted by a very cozy ambience that is definitely perfect for any dates or wonderful time with your friends. We ordered the bao lunch set ($16 each), and they came with a refreshing Iced citrus tea, a edamame salad and any 3 baos of your choice. The salad was actually very appetising, as I find myself busy munching through the edamame very happily. The baos are actually a zhnged up version of the traditional Kong Ba Baos, and my favourites are the Chilli Crab, Salmon Mentaiko and Truffle Mushroom.

The Chilli Crab Bao was bursting with crabmeat and they really nailed the sauce! The Fried Salmon in the Salmon Mentaiko Bao was fresh and crispy, with a good amount of umami mentaiko. The truffle mushroom had a good amount of truffle taste, and the shitake mushroom was so thick and juicy! Will be back again!

yep yep very nice vanilla bean ice cream with steamy fudgy gao brownie. 6.7/10 - brownie wasn’t my fav & was abit gelat but still gyuuÜud

Pictured here is the Blacked Chicken Bao, 1/3 of the Baos you get to choose from a selection of 8.

Taste: Bombz - chicken was super supple on the inside and crisp on the outside

For the lunch set you’ll get a salad side, a drink and 3 baos of your choice!
