Golden Steamer

$$$$
Perfect For:Breakfast

For $1.25, you could get a ride on the subway in 1992. In present day, that amount could get you a steamed pumpkin bun at Golden Steamer. The price has actually gone up from under a dollar in recent years, but it’s still a highly reasonable amount to pay for something that tastes this good. This little bakery on Mott Street serves plenty of bun varieties, from pork to egg yolk, but they’re most famous for the one filled with pumpkin custard. They always come out piping hot, and after eating one, you’ll want Golden Steamer to become a tutor for all other places and products that are part of the Pumpkin Spice Industrial Complex.

Lalito

Lalito is a Mexican-ish spot in Chinatown, with a funky menu and good vibes. Hit it for dinner, or even lunch if you’re on jury duty.
