In 3 days [VIC] Bao $1ea (Normally $2.70) @ Wonderbao (Melbourne, 20/7 11am-4pm)


When you need a quick bite on a budget, baos are hard to beat. When they’re only $1, it’s hard to say no. That’s what Wonderbao will be serving when it celebrates its seventh birthday – and 10,000 followers on Instagram – on July 20.

It’ll be dropping the price of four traditional bao varieties – char siu (barbeque pork), choi (shiitake mushroom, tofu and vegies), nai wong (egg custard) and taro – to just $1. (All other menu items will be available the regular retail price.) Customers can order as many $1 baos as they like, as long as they visit between 11am and 4pm.

    tiny shop, slow service at the best of times… good luck waiting in line with 100 others for (admittedly delicious) gua bao

    FYI you can get $1 bao through eatclub.


      Do you know if the EatClub deal is limited to 1 bao/person?

      I think it's only for new users


      Is it just 1 $1 bao or unlimited?

      I booked through EatClub and went to this shop only to find them closed. Was a lot of hassle messing around with parking etc.

      I certainly wouldn't bother with this.


    Either the title is wrong or the Wonderbao website is wrong. Their menu lists these at $2.20 each (not $2.70):


    Was staying in the QV apartments in Melbourne CBD, visiting from QLD. Was looking for somewhere nearby that was selling braised pork belly bao. Google sent me to Wonderbao. Took a while to find the place cause of the enormous Metro building works, but when I eventually found my way around to the RMIT bball courts and then found the shop, I was in pork belly heaven. Shame the pork belly bao arent $1 in this deal, but I am back in QLD, so I cant get that porky goodness anyways. Eat a few of these for me Ozbargainers.


    Wow $2.70 for a bao? We pay $6-8 for admittedly delicious ones on the Gold Coast. At the full price I'd be all over these, at $1 you'd have to roll me out of there.
