Sweet Star is a busy local favorite in Bensonhurst with all the Chinese bakery standards—excellent pineapple buns filled with either pork or custard, steamed rice rolls, zongzi—but the real reason to come here is for the bouncy, chewy sweets. Their coconut peanut mochi is super soft and stretchy: a satisfying complement to the crunchy peanut interior. The white sugar sponge cake has a chewier texture, with a honeycombed interior and a delicate, fermented flavor. Sweet Star has some seating inside, so if you’re lucky enough to snag a table, you can get right down to the business of eating through your haul.
