    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

    My only comment - is it just me or are they more spongy than before (if that makes any sense)?Still super good though. Will make a trip to this place everytime we're in NY.
