    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.

    Forget everything you think you know about sponge cake. Kam Hing has the best in the city. Get 'em warm for just $.70. Disclaimer: you'll house four or five of these bad boys in one sitting. Read more
