    Their sponge cakes are amazing, especially the green tea one. They sell out quickly, so make it your first stop in Chinatown.

    Conflicted. Fluffy cakes are classic but bakeries were exposed to using plasticizers to keep baked goods fresh. This place might be using them; mom went overboard 1 time, burped w/strong plastic smell

    Say no to your nostalgia, and avoid ordering horlicks. Too watery.

    Sponge cake! They have plain, green tea, coconut, strawberry and white chocolate flavors as well. Haven't tried the strawberry or white chocolate, plain is still my favorite so far.

    Sponge cakes are FOR REAL. Ordered original & green tea for ONLY $1.70 and I already can't wait to try the coconut! Sneaky hole in the wall so it's easy to pass this quick & cheap snack... But don't!

    Hole in the wall coffee shop you could easily skip except for the fragrant and ethereally light sponge cake, easily the best in Chinatown and a steal at 70 cents each.
