Year of Phat Panda

You know the deliciousness that you spend ages lining up for at the markets that come to Canberra once a year? I’m talking baos, puffles and fried anything?! Well you can now lineup any day of the week as many times as you please! 

Tucked in Southpoint Tuggeranong is your new favourite go-to for street food. For those who live in the city area, this place is most definitely worth the trek because true to their name their menu is PHAT with goodness. 

Luke is so full of energy and passion that it is so palpable and you can easily spend hours chatting to him about his business. He was told by many that it was a risk and a bad idea but he persevered and followed his dream.  He was heavily in the entire creative process from the name to designing to logo, to all of the wonderful menu changes. Speaking of the menu… 

Savoury: Fried chicken 
Sweet: Ice cream, chocolate sauce, hundreds & thousands 

So with these I tend to eat the filling so quickly and leave a large remainder of the cone last whoops. Both were equally as delicious and it’s good that there’s the option for whatever you feel like on the day. Couldn’t stop myself even if I tried! Can confirm I was very full by the end of it. 

Savoury: Fried Chicken with Sweet Chilli, Marinated Beef with Tangy Mango, Crispy Tofu with BBQ Hoisin Sauce. All Baos include: pickled carrot, purple cabbage & coriander 
Sweet: Build your own: Ice cream, Oreos, 

Baos are literally one of my favourite go-to foods so you can say that I’ve had my fair share. These did not disappoint. The bao itself folded nicely and did not break which is one thing I can’t stand, so the filling stayed inside nicely. Also a generous portion of filling ensured that the delicious flavours filled your mouth with each bite. With the ice cream one, it was the ice cream sandwich of my dreams. 

BBQ Pork Puff 
Not a curry puff, which is the common mistake here! With super tasty pork and warm and soft pastry, you will finish them and instantly order more (guilty)! 

Finger-lickin’ good! They are sticky, tasty and juicy! 

Crepes (Build your own) 
This concoction was loaded with goodness, mostly because I have the biggest sweet tooth. On mine I had ice cream, marshmallows, Oreos, hundreds & thousands, strawberry and chocolate sauce and chocolate sticks - phew! I highly recommend saying yes to everything too! The size of the crepe definitely makes this dessert filling and the colours and flavours help this be a perfect dessert! 

Luke you are a legend - be back soon! Oh would you look at the clock, it’s lunchtime - guess where I’m going….
