Happy Star Bakery

Map & Directions 160 E. Broadway
New York, NY 10002


Village Voice's Description

A little off the beaten path of Chinatown, Happy Star Bakery (formerly known as Sun Light Bakery Corp.) is a strange amalgamation of things: traditional Chinese bakery, dim sum house, and fresh noodle spot. While the baked goods are fine (and their partner shop, right next door, has more of a selection), the main draw is the fresh noodles. The noodles are made to order: the batter is strung onto a shelf in a steam cabinet and topped with whatever fixings you like (scallions, cilantro, pork, shrimp, beef stew, or egg) and shut in the cabinet for a few minutes, left to cook until perfectly gooey and chewy. Service here is typical of most small Chinatown places, and this is cash only. Pork buns are also on offer but seem to sell out quickly. But that's probably because most everything costs less than two bucks. --Shane Barnes

    Fresh, made-to-order cheurng fun (rice rolls). What could be better? I normally get the beef (with extra meat) and a little hot sauce. Delicious!

    Who knew fish and corn could make such a good combination?
