The standout at Yummy Bakery and Cafe is the egg white custard tarts. Though there are other Chinese-style bakeries in Chinatown that sell them, Yummy arguably makes the, well, yummiest ones: the custard is soft, airy, and creamy, albeit a little sweeter than their yolky counterparts. Yummy’s crust also leans on the crumblier side, almost like a hybrid between shortbread and puff pastry. There is also a variety of other excellent baked goods here, like purple sweet potato buns, durian cakes, and flaky wife cakes (also known as sweetheart cakes) filled with winter melon. And note, this small bakery only accepts cash or Venmo.
