Tiger Bao, Old Shanghai Markets, 9 / 123 James Street, Northbridge, Phone 0478 037 710.
I Don’t Wanna Get Over You … am not sure it’s a possibility to get over food this good. They make their Bao daily, in house, and cook them in tiers of glistening steaming trays.
Tiger Bao sits in the “refreshed” Old Shanghai Markets on James Street. Was quite impressed with the look of the place, nothing drastic was done but it looks all shiny and new.
I’ve had two visits to Tiger Bao this week. First time in I tried an Eggplant Bao which was sensational.
Two pieces of crispy fried Eggplant with loads of coriander, cucumber, drippy sauces and crushed peanuts.
And, oh wow, the Bao was fabulous and bigger than most. This was so yummy, the second visit was a necessity.
Could not say no to a glass of Tiger Beer to go with my Tiger Bao. Have not had a beer for a long long time and it was fabulous.
A lunch special was the go on the second visit and I opted for an eggplant and a fried chicken, plus sweet potato fries.
The chicken was crispy on the outside, juicy and tender inside. And very delicious. Still think my favourite is the eggplant though. Yum.
