On Location!!! - Kuching - Big Pao @ Padungan

Big pao. It is essentially a very big bak pao (steam meat bun). This particular one is quite famous in Kuching. It was eaten at a shop conviniently named Foochow Big Pao. It is along Jalan Padungan.

The picture above is of the big pao. In pao terms, this is humungous!! Its not only wider than your average pao, it is alot taller as well!! Those thinking that a pao can be a light meal, you can forget this one. This by itself is a meal!!

Upon having the first bite, noticed that the inside is chuck full of goodness! There were pieces of chicken meat, minced pork and a quarter of an egg!! The pao itself was nice, warm and soft. The filling as equally as good. Add some chilli sauce before having each bite and you're good to go!!
