At Lady Wong, you'll see multicolored cakes and pastries sitting in glass cases as if they're million-dollar watches. That's probably because these baked (and steamed) goods are, indeed, very precious. Opened by husband-and-wife duo Seleste Tan and Mogan Anthony, who previously worked at Jean-Georges and the Four Seasons, Lady Wong is an East Village bakery committed to showcasing Southeast Asian flavors. If you're looking for a snack, there's a large variety of kuih, and you'll also find some elaborate tarts, swiss rolls, and layer cakes. Try any one of these things, and you'll feel compelled to come back once a week. (We suggest the silky, candy-coated taro ube tart.) Before any party or special occasion, stop by for a box of treats that will make your friends and family forgive any past transgressions.
