I got me some Chinese buns. True.
Bacon Bun with mayonnaise filling. That thing was oozing with grease all inside the bag. It was awesome, delectable. The steamed roast pork bun (char siu bao) soaked up the grease off my fingers. The egg tart (don tat) was really light and fluffy.
The items were between $1.25 – $1.50. Not cheap like Chinatown, but very cheap for not Chinatown. Take that Shake Shack and your line.

No picture of the mayo filling?! I feel cheated
@Fireyram …I was possibly cheated too because I thought there would be a pocket of mayo inside. I think the mayo filling is the top with the bacon …like a McD’s breakfast cheese danish? Don’t mean no harm.
The Bacon and Mayo Buns are my favorite! I love the salt bacon flavor mixed with the sweet corn kernels. YUM…and with green onions! SO good!
