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
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!
You can't go wrong with the prices here, but definitely don't leave without trying the pumpkin buns.
Dai bao (big bun) is like dim sum in one bun: egg, Chinese sausage, veggies, and unidentifiable meat paste.
Coconut buns. Nomnom
the steamed custard buns are obnoxiously good!
