Food Review: Mr. Siew Bao, Sunway Pyamid

Note: This is a scheduled post.



I know Jeff will be happy to see another positive review of his traditional Chinese puffs.

After the disastrous tasting of the Seremban’s Siew Bao, which stung Mama Carrie’s taste buds with its enormous amount of sugar and salt, she started to crave for Mr. Siew Bao.



His Winter Melon Paste (老婆并, lao po bing) was perfect; it contained more winter melon and less sugar than its commercial rivals. Siew Bao (烧包, shao bao), on the other hand, was better than the one Mama Carrie bought on her return drive from Seremban. This particular one had just the right amount of salt, sugar and oil.

I can't help but wonder if Jeff had done his research before he launched the product and I want to give him a thumb's up for giving us the traditional taste.



Address: Mr. Siew Bao,
F1.K1, Sunway Pyramid
No. 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.

  1. Very cute logo! I think mr siew bao has branches in lot 10, empire gallery and possibly also my neighborhood of sri petaling, but I've never tried it before. Should check it out someday for a tea time treat :D

    1. Hey there, Sean!

      I hadn't known that they had opened a branch in the nearby Empire Gallery until I ran into it one fine day. I believe they have another branch in Lot 10. Mid Valley, I think they have too but I can't be sure. =)

      Well, if and when you give it a taste, don't forget to sample their popular Winter Melon Paste biscuit. You'll be surprised at the taste...

    1. Trust me, Yum List.

      When I first tasted the Winter Melon Paste and Siew Bao, it was so delicious that I ended up helping to clear their baked puffs during my next trip there. =D

      Give it a try!

    1. That's cool, Eve!

      I've never thought of that before, actually, but now that you've mentioned it, I think I'll have no issue with food if I ever attend a pot luck dinner. =)

  5. I've never been here before! It looks like it's worth a try if it's better than Seremban ones! :)
