All you get…

I liked the mini char siew pao from Johore that my missus bought not too long ago so I told everyone about them on Facebook. My friend, Annie, in KL promptly commented on my post and shared a photograph of this…

She likes this one too!

That was why when the ladies went out shopping the other day, I told them to drop by the supermarket and grab a pack for me if they see it there. Well, they did and yes, they got me a pack.

The very next morning, I could not wait to steam it to heat it up and give it a try. When I opened the pack, I was stunned. There were ONLY two…

…inside, two big ones but two is all you get in a pack, no more, no less!

Yes, they were very nice, piping hot, straight from the steamer and there were huge chunks of meat inside, with quite a bit of egg some more…

…unlike those miserable steamed paos here.

However, they are RM11.00 something a pack so it works out to almost RM6.00 EACH, two plates of kampua mee, mind you! At that price, I think I would give them a pass – at least, I’ve given them a try and I do know how good they are. Period.

  1. Wow, that is way too expensive. When your missus bought it, definitely she can feel that there are only 2 paos inside the packaging. Luckily it is very nice otherwise not worth the price.

    Yes, but my cousin in Kuching says the famous big pao there is also around that price now. I wonder how much those horrible but very popular Fook Hai ones are going for.

  2. So that means there is no need to go to dim sum shop anymore if these ready-made ones are equally as good as those. Hmm…

    Yes, no need. #staysafe #staywell #stayhome Best thing to do at a time like this!!!

  3. They have to “fly” to Sibu, that explain the price, just like the instant kampua price here. 😊

    We are selling at RM7.50.

    WOWWWWWW!!!! So cheap!!! Tit for tat, eh? LOL!!!

  4. Two big ones are around that price… over here a giant pau is around RM5-7rm… these are not char siew pau, I called them Sang Yuk Pau…

    Yes, they are not, just bak pao. The mini ones we bought previously those were the char siew paos.

  5. Big baos. Convenient when you feel like eating. Just take out and steam. But sure not cheap.

    The local ones here are around RM2.00 only but they are not so nice, all skin, so little meat and the egg is not visible to the naked eye. I guess if you want quality, you will just have to pay for it.
