November 26th, 2017. We were headed to church for friends’ wedding. Before the time, we stopped by to Jin Bao. I didn’t really remember how I knew about Jin Bao, but I remember that I saw Anak Jajan’s IG about it.
When we arrived, it was still closed. But they let us in and we waited inside. Then, they asked for our orders. I visited their 2nd floor, but only for taking photos. After that we waited for our orders. And I was happy that they made our orders so fast. We didn’t have to wait for too long. And I love the simple ambiance there. Not too spacious but quite cosy.

Sheng Jian Baos
Shanghainese little pan fried dumplings of meat and soupy goodness (All Sheng Jian Bao’s will come in portions of 4. w/Soy, Ginger, Chilli & Garlic.)
Classic Pork Filling 48k
Juicy Pork Filling
Actually the particular thing about this bao is the pan-fried idea. Well, I love their juicy pork filling with the tasteful broth. But the pan-fried idea wasn’t my palate. I prefer they make the dumpling skin thinner and not fried. Errr.. it’s quite hard for me to explain in English. But, I hope you know what I meant. Other than the skin, it was totally perfectly delicious.
Shao Kao Beef Bowl 65k
Stir Fried Aromatic Beef Slices, Fennel Seeds, Crispy Potatoes, Onions
Well-seasoned beef slices, combined with rice bowl. Should be fantastic. But the spicy taste reduced our fun *sobbing* Well it was delicious but I think next time I will ask them to make it non-spicy beef bowl hahahaha. The beef slices were tender and juicy. Recommended choice for spicy food lovers.
Butter & Sweet Milk Pork Chop Bowl 55k
Pork Loins w/ Cracker Crumbs, Sweet & Spicy Milk Sauce, Milk Powder
A very particular dish. Pork and rice with milk sauce and milk powder. The combination of rice and pork and milk sauce were funtastic. It was milky, sweet, salty and actually not too spicy, for us. The pork loins were a little bit hard, but still easy to chew. Recommended for pork lovers, like me, hahaha..
Thank you Jin Bao for making me happy at my lunch time.
