serving the best steamed pork buns in manhattan area, frequented by many filipino-americans due to it's sweet steamed buns taste (filipinos like their steamed buns sweet!) hence about half it''s customers are fil ams. This is not your conventional dim sum with the push cart ladies. Afterall, it?s a bakery and not restaurant ok!. the steamed pork buns are cheap for manhattan standards at just $ 1.00 a bun or $ 9.60 a dozen pack so many buy it by the dozen. they also have other food besides the famed pork buns.

Favorite Dish: the pork steamed buns! the bubble tea with pearl coolers. The zongzi, sticky rice wrapped in leaves. there area other menus but i havent tried them yet, maybe next time I visit manhattan.
