This classic cash-only Chinese bakery is small, with only a few tables and a counter, but it’s one of our favorite places to grab a quick take-out meal. Anything from their pastry case will be worth the trip, including the pork buns, coconut tarts, and 90-cent chicken curry turnovers. Everything is made fresh daily, and make sure you ask them to heat up the pastries.
