Bao Makers hops on the popular rice bun trend that has swept across Hong Kong, New York and London. Positioning itself in the boonies of Jalan Besar, its menu of six different baos include interpretations of local favourites. There's the classic dark soya sauce-braised pork ($12), a chilli crab version ($16) and the salted egg yolk shrimp bao ($15). If you can't decide which selection to choose from, order a platter ($28) with four flavours. To keep up with the cafes in the area, Bao Makers also caters eggs benedicts ($7) – there is also a bao version of this – pastas, and cake sundaes ($7) on the menu. Coffee snobs may also be pleased to know that Bao Maker’s beans are from Common Man Coffee Roasters, so there’s good reason to take that much needed hit, post-meal.
