Siew Bao
Review (5)
Although I initially intended to utilize the Worthy Book voucher that has been in my possession for a couple of snacks in Mr. Siew Bao, Empire Gallery, it wasn't until Mama Carrie needed to settle the telecommunication matters with urgency that I decided to kill two birds with one stone. There is a wide variety of Chinese snacks being sold including egg tarts, the Teochew wedding biscuits, egg rolls, winter melon biscuits and more that I can't remember.I'll have to admit that I was purchasing the items with a sense of apprehension; my previous experience with the siew bao wasn't too perfect and I really hoped that it'd not occur, but much of my dismay, it transpired again. Siew BaoI'm sorry to say that Mama Carrie and I both felt like we were ingested pure, coarse salt. I understand that this is for preservation purposes as the spokesman did assure us way back when that no chemicals were added into the patisserie but it was in excess. It didn't explode with the flavors of a freshly baked item either. It leaned towards staleness instead as if the paste had been prepared a day or two in advance, but it was still edible. When I first tasted this dish during its days of infancy, it was heaven and contained less oil and sodium chloride but after such a long period of hiatus, the quality has dipped tremendously with the extra addition of oil and sodium chloride, which is such a pity as Mr. Siew Bao has a lengthy history behind the name.I really hope that this is an isolated incident because it'll be such a waste to see my favorite brand losing specialty.Address: Mr. Siew Bao,F1.K1, Sunway PyramidNo. 3, Jalan PJS 11/15, Bandar Sunway,46150 Petaling Jaya,Selangor Darul Ehsan.Landmark: It's a mere booth away from Maxis on the 1st floor of the new wing.

Mr. Siew Bao is a pastry stall that is located nearby Maxis ans Adidas shop, just next to Jerry's Pancake. As per their shop name, their signature pastry of course is the Siew Bao (crispy and round puff with meat). If you are craving for some traditional local puff, this is the place you should head to. Beside this, it also offers all sorts of local puffs and buns, from Cheese Chicken Siew Bao to Curry Siew Bao and Mushroom Vegetarian Siew Bao. No dine in, only take away. Good news for my Muslim friends as this pastry shop is HALAL. I have bought their siew bao (RM1.70). It is very crispy, the meat inside is just nice and smell good. To bad the size is a bit small. I have bought the coconut siew bao (RM1.70) as well. The outlook is similar like siew bao, just that the internal ingredient is coconut. Overall, I think the party is delicious and the price is reasonable. continue reading

So far of so many siew paus I have had in my life, I have never came across one that dissapoints me. I am glad to find another alternative place to get my siew pau fix, very convenient in a shopping mall too The outer crust is shiny, had a nice brown colour- must be due to egg wash nicely spreaded in between baking time and even before that. It looks apetizing on itself already.Upon biting on the siew pau, the crust had a nice buttery taste, slightly flaky and crunchy at the same time. It left some crumbled pieces falling indicating the texture of it is good, very well made. The filling makes it taste even better- savoury, slightly sweet and sticky loosely sliced meat. It is like a mini snack good for eating anytime continue reading
