Staple to chinatown with the pork buns.
If you've never tried the roast pork buns, know that they are on the mushy and sweet side. I liked them, but I could see some finding them too fatty or of strange texture. Still only $1 each.
Been coming here since I was a child! Love the pork buns and sweet buns.
Roast & steamed pork buns
Baked Roast Pork Bun is the best!
The Baked Roast Pork Bun is the closest I have found to the ones I had in Hong Kong. They are amazing, but the quest continues. The Famous Bun doesn't have anything in it, so don't waste your time.
Great pork buns!
Their rice crepes are a bit pricey but freshly made. Prepare to wait at least 10 minutes. Worth a try.
Try the Baked Pork Buns & Steamed Combo Buns - We always have to bring home a box of freshly made buns! #Yum (via @Foodspotting)

Get the baked "char siao bao" or as my Fillipino friends call it "siao bao".
Piping hot coffee and a brown bun. Love!

Get a dozen pork buns!
I love how rude and loud the ladies -- especially the one with the pink cap -- behind the counter are. When she shouts, "Next!" you better step up and place your order.
Get their pork buns, egg custard & shrimp rice rolls. Delicious & cheap food!
The baked pork buns!
The baked roast pork bun sold here is definitely the best in Chinatown. The filling is tender and savory-sweet and the outer shell baked to the perfect sheen. Best of all, it's a mere $1.
Roast Pork Bun: $0.90
stick to the baked pork buns and the fresh shrimp rice noodle roll and you'll leave here happy. don't get too weird though, the rest of the stuff we tried was pretty suspect.
Milk tea and roast pork buns, get takeout.
Make sure to order the baked roast pork bun (not steamed). Sweet glazed skin, savory & ultra juicy pork on the inside for $0.80.
The baked roast pork buns are my favorite. I am obsessed. I discovered them as the result of a happy accident, I meant to get steamed. And now I buy them by the dozen. They are my treat to myself.
The baked pork buns are the best. Their fried dumplings were good too but it looks like they were taken off the menu recently.
Best. Pork. Buns. $0.90. Best price I've found. And they're still warm. And full of meat.
the pork buns are on the sweeter side, but delicious. The lotus seed buns were not that great. Congee orders take up to 10 minutes.
Come here for the baked roast pork buns. Order extra so that you can freeze them and savor later.
The baked pork buns are really awesome! But I didn't enjoy anything else they had.
All they care abt is ppl who comes to take out. They don't service u at all when u dine in. POOR SERVICE!
Baked pork buns are better than steamed, more meat less fat jello. Coconut buns are everything so good I forgot to take a picture so just buy one and be happy. Get in, get out and no hurt feelings.
Every time, no matter what else I order, I must get a coconut bun. Or 6.
Roast pork buns are huge and deep fried and egg custard is creamy and traditional at the popular bakery.
Baked pork buns - get one, get a dozen, get a couple dozens and make new friends!
Twelve pork buns for only $10.80, nuff said. And yes, the pork buns are actually pretty good and filling as well.
Service is as rude as they say. For less than a buck, the baked pork buns are tasty and better than the steamed.
the roast pork buns are amazing! make sure to get a fresh one, if you can! and they're less than $1!
Steamed (white) or baked (Brown) roast pork buns are delicious. I prefer the baked because the bread is a little sweet then you get a little salty from the today pork. Perfect combination.
Be careful with the tip calculation on the bill.
Pass on the signature pork buns, which have been less impressive of late, but the rice rolls, congee, and steamed lotus paste buns are worth a buy.
The baked pork buns really come correct. The rice rolls take about 10 min but they are worth the wait.
Not as good as it used to be. Might as well go around the corner to Hop Shing
Best pork buns I've ever had
Best Tai Pao in Chinatown. And try the coconut bread also it's really good!
Best pineapple buns in NYC.
I must say - worst dim sum in CT. I don't know what was worst, the waitresses stank ass face or the chewy food. And how can you serve dim sum and not have tea ? Like dude. Really? Never coming back.
That young famous bun . So delicious real talk baby.
Bad dimsum, sour coffee, bad service, and overpriced try somewhere else
