Bao Today 包今天

Prior to watching 'The Lost Bladesman' at Marina Square a few days ago, me and BC had lunch at Bao Today 包今天. We have walked past Bao Today 包今天 numerous times but never got down to trying it thus we decided to give it a try.

We ordered Bao's XO noodles, siew mai, prawn dumplings, fried carrot cake and steamed egg custard buns (流沙包), chinese tea and teh c. Sorry that no pictures will be in this posting as I did not managed to take any pics (we were too hungry!!! lol). The serving portion of Bao's XO noodles is pathetic enough to make me think I am eating a kid's meal! It comes with a sunny side up, luncheon meat and some vegetable. It's basically dry instant noodles in XO sauce. The noodles is Q and firm but the XO sauce is a bit too salty for my liking.

The dim sums are on the other hand, GOOD *thumbs up*. The siew mai and prawn dumplings are big, fresh and succulent, even better than those served at Crystal Jade Kitchen. The fried carrot cakes are crispy which we absolutely love (some restaurants do not fry the carrot cakes enough and it ended up tasting soft and oily). The skin of steamed egg custard buns are thin and the filling is nice enough to taste the saltiness of the egg yolk and sweetness of the custard, a very well-balanced taste.

The only 'complaint' I had of Bao Today is that they do not have enough seats thus the walkway between the tables are a bit narrow. But other than that, the food are absolutely yummy!!!
