Not so at the Bao Bar in new restaurant Full of Luck Club at Holland Village though. The modern Cantonese dining concept is helmed by the team from award-winning Li Bai Cantonese Restaurant in Sheraton Towers, and features a spin on the classic bao by serving it open-face or slider-style.

Bao Bar in Full of Luck Club opens on May 20, while the restaurant fully opens on May 27. For more information, visit fullofluck.club, or Full of Luck Club’s Facebook page.

Look out for our take on all things bao in the next issue of The Peak Selections: Gourmet and Travel.
