The orange awning outside of Good Mong Kok acts like a lighthouse beacon, signaling to the neighborhood that it’s a legendary dim sum destination. The sign is clearly working—people line up outside of this shoebox-sized Chinatown bakery daily for their generously stuffed char siu bao and pillowy pineapple buns. The big steamers by the window and the pastry cases are refilled constantly since items get snatched up fast. This spot is also takeout-only, so grab one of everything, and eat your treats on the sidewalk in record time.

Baked BBQ Pork Bun

No trip to Good Mong Kok is complete without one of these. The filling is made up of small pieces of crisp yet tender meat, and the bun itself wins a gold medal for Best Squish Factor.

Baked Pineapple Bun

Just sweet enough, and the signature cookie-like topping is thick and buttery. These come in an order of three, and you’ll probably finish them all off before you get home.

Shui Mai

We usually go for the classic pork, or whatever’s fresh out of the steamer. These dense meat bombs are textbook perfection.
