verdict: tasty, try it!
this bakery is a watering hole for a lot of chinese senior citizens. when you go there on any given day, there will be a crowd of them with their styrofoam coffee/tea cups yapping away. i think that's cute. anyways, it's not an "attractive" place to eat unless you like plastic or old looking, worn furniture. i usually buy my baked goods to go.
i've bought various pastries and things here for the past 5 years and they are super cheap and delicious. my favorite are their cream buns (sounds funny) because the butter cream and the bread is so deliciously made! they usually run out of those first so i try to go earlier in the day if i want to get some. they also have yummy baked or steam cha siu bows, sponge cakes, and sesame balls with mung bean filling inside. everything is within view so you can just point and purchase.
you will be amazed by the number of goodies you will get by just spending a few dollars here. a great place to stop by if you need a quick snack.
cheap and tasty. just the way i like it.
