Bao or pau? Kopi or coffee? Regardless of word choice - we're talking about a steamed bun with a sweet coffee-flavored belly button. I tried to sell my local friends on it - they just gave me the "what does an Ang Mo know about bao" look. Especially a bao from Potong Pasir - one of the smallest estates in Singapore. PP is a bit dog-eared in a lovable way. While the rest of the island has been upgrading like crazy, PP has retained some original small-town charm.
When you tear open the tender skin you get to the goodness. I am guessing it's some kind of sweetened bean paste flavored with coffee. Drop one of these like a hand grenade on your 3pm post-lunch lull and see what happens. I pair it with a nice kopi c siu dai and nod off like a heroin junkie. (If you don't know what a kopi c siu dai is, stand by, I am gonna do a post on Singapore coffee soon.)
