Bao Makers took over the unit vacated by Windowsill Pies after the latter relocated to another place. They are a cafe that sort of specialise in buns (包) but they also serve a mixture of western and jap-styled mains and pasta.
Since the baos seemed to be their main selling point, we tried the items from that category. Namely the Chilli Crab and Salted Egg Shrimp baos served with salad. The buns of the two dishes were handled differently. The chilli crab one was lightly fried just like the mantous we dip in the chilli crab gravy and the salted egg shrimp one was purely steamed.
The Chilli Crab ones were pretty decent, but don’t expect tons of crab meat inside. Salted Egg Yolk Shrimp was interesting concept but it could be better executed as we find the salted egg yolk coating too watery.
An interesting display of Automat can be found in the eatery thou we are not sure if it is supposed to be working?
