Looking for something cheap and quick to eat or snack on? A Chinese bakery is an easy answer. Personally, I’m a big fan of the bbq pork buns. Much to my dismay, my absolute favourite Chinese bakery – Yung Sing on Baldwin – has been closed for renovations for what seems like forever! (Please reopen, I miss you!!!) That was one of my comfort staples! Better than popcorn, I used to love swinging by Yung Sing before a movie for a couple buns, spring roll or two, and those delicious shrimp rolls that you had to eat quickly before they turned the brown paper bags translucent.
I work in Chinatown so there are many many options. One I recently tried out was simply called Chinese Bakery.
There was a mass amount of selection and the entire contents of those two trays came to a whopping $8. The bags of baked, steamed and fried treasures sufficed not only for lunch for two, but snacks for two also…and then some. Lesson learned, don’t be a glutton, two or three items will do just fine.
