When our internal body clocks tell us to re-stock our freezer with a borderline ridiculous amount of bao (this happens more often than you’d think), we listen - and head straight to Three Star Restaurant in the Sunset. Their fluffy egg yolk, char siu, and chicken-filled steamed bao are excellent - and we like to ask for them cold and take a few bags home to stick in the fridge and steam later. The dim sum spot also has hot food to go, like vegetable dishes, chow mein, and rice plates.
