3 munchies: For just under $25, Bao Today serves up a wide variety of decent, value-for-money dim sum dishes under its Tapas Buffet offering. With more than 30 items that are freshly-made daily by Hong Kong chefs, I liked the concept of how diners are not bounded to ordering their favourite dishes by the number of bamboo steamers or plates, but by how ever many individual pieces you like.

My picks were the phoenix tail siew mai, pan-fried champagne pork, black sesame bao, and the award-winning pan-fried banana & red bean paste pastry. Misses were the steamed cod with Nonya sauce and paper-wrapped chicken wing. Also, we were all hoping for some good old Chinese tea (not iced lemon or peach tea) to complete the yumcha experience, which is ironically not served for the buffet option.

This was a hosted meal by Bao Today; many thanks to Hui Ling for the hospitality and Burpple for the invite!
