86 Best Bakery

Come to this bustling bakery just outside the elevated train tracks on 86th street in Bensonhurst for one of two things: steamed rice rolls, or Pokémon cards. 86 Best Bakery has a great selection of both, but we’re partial to the fried dough steamed rice rolls, which are fluffy and crisp on the inside and topped with lots of scallions and tiny dried shrimp. Eat them on the sidewalk while you crack open a fresh pack of cards, maybe, and hope you get a Pikachu.
