One day I was home from night's off and my mom told me a friend of hers brought some baos over. I brushed them aside initially until i took a look inside.
Instead of the usual cha siew and pork buns you get elsewhere, this is really a "mouth-size" one! One box is able to fit 9 of these small baos and my mom's friend brought 2 boxes, one cha siew and one minced pork filling.
Cha Siew Bao ($?)
The exterior texture is soft and fluffy, with no signs of hardened undercook flour anywhere. The fillings of the baos doesn't disappoint too. The cha siew is a mixture of roasted fat and lean pork, slightly chewy and juicy, well marinated with a sweet aftertaste.
Minced Pork Bao ($?)
The other one is like a miniture "da bao" without the egg, retaining the meat juice and having a savoury flavour. What i really like about these two baos is that you won't get an overkill of them compared to the normal sizes one. You can easily pop one in your mouth and satisfy your craving for them, yet not feeling stuffed with yeast and too full for anything else.
Any idea what other nice snacks Tanjong Rhu Pau sells? Drop me a message!
