Village Voice's Description

This steamed-bun specialist offers a plethora of bao, filled with almost everything imaginable-lotus seed paste, egg custard, pumpkin, pork with greens and egg, chicken and ginger, salted egg yolk, and so on. The fluffy, cloud-like, white mantao that encases each filling is made on the premises, and you might catch a glimpse of a fellow kneading and cutting the dough in the back. You can also grab a few dim sum items to-go, like chewy turnip
cake, gelatinous sweet sesame rolls, and fried spring rolls.

Tips from foursquare

  • Village Voice on 02/09/11

    Try the baked buns- the fabled hot dog roll, the scallion roll, or a sesame roll. All these incorporate some sugar, so they are sweet and salty. They make a very nice cheap lunch or snack on the run!

  • China Daily USA on 04/20/11

    You can't go wrong with the prices here, but definitely don't leave without trying the pumpkin buns.

  • Jacquelyn S. on 10/21/13

    Dai bao (big bun) is like dim sum in one bun: egg, Chinese sausage, veggies, and unidentifiable meat paste.

    the steamed custard buns are obnoxiously good!
