Char Siu Bao


A bite into one of these heavenly delights is a treat to behold. Going for a dim sum experience cannot be complete without a serving of char sui bao that is fresh, and warm, with a texture - as a customer recently said - that feels like biting into a soft cloud.

No matter what life’s obstacles, this time was special and a chance to start fresh on a clean slate. Everyone would be given [...]
