Juicy Bao

Anywhere we travel it’s impossible to miss Chinese food. And in between the sandwiches and steaks, we were in for some noodles and dumplings. Juicy Bao was recommended to us by a local friend, and it made for the perfect lunch spot while we window-shopped around Chinatown in downtown Melbourne. Because it was a late lunch, we decided not to over-order and stick to a few varieties: the signature steamed pork xiao long bao, pan-fried bao, pork and prawn wontons, minced pork noodles, and some stir fried Chinese broccoli.

My favorite was the noodle dish, chewy and perfectly savory with some crunch from the greens. And of course, mixed in with a generous spoonful of chili oil. As for the baos, they were decent, with the exception of my little bao-juice-trickling-down-my-sleeve hiccup. But I have no one but myself to blame. Afterwards we continued our stroll around downtown, as our eyes roamed for a little something sweet.
