🍴Enjoyable bao platter that came with 8 different flavours - chilli crab, salted egg chicken, salmon mentaiko, pork belly, mala beef, blackened chicken, truffle mushroom, and veggie - in soft fluffy baos. The large variety makes it great for sharing as there’s something for everyone!

Our favourites were the fragrant truffle mushroom bao, tender pork belly marinated in Chinese spices, and charcoal fried chicken that was crispy on the outside while juicy inside with a flavourful garlic mayo sauce. We also appreciated the generous amounts of chili crab in the crispy mantou. We were less fans of the mala beef, finding it to be on the salty side and without any spicy kick (we didn’t realize it was mala if not for the description). The salted egg chicken was also on the sweeter rather than saltier side, and we would have preferred for a richer and less creamy mentaiko.

The Singapore latte was an interesting take on cold brew with a more traditional roasted coffee flavour, fresh milk, and enjoyable soft and chewy house made espresso jelly. We also enjoyed the refreshing yakult-based grapefruit, orange, passionfruit tonic albeit it being a tad on the sweeter side.
