Good pastries for a reasonable price

This is the best Chinese bakery in Chinatown NY. The pastries are amazing and the prices are surprisingly lower than other bakeries in the neighborhood.

I stopped here for dessert in January 2016. It is a nice little Chinese bakery. A lady helps you select your pastry. I chose a Chinese apple pie. I also got some soy milk. It cost only $2.70. There are a few seats and I had a nice conversation with a Chinese lady who spoke excellent English. I would recommend... More

We have been to many Chinese bakeries in Chinatowns in NY and Philadelphia and they are always an interesting experience and a place to relax from the bustle and buy some inexpensive eats. Dragon Land is an experience if you've never been to this style of place. The pastries up front are there for your selection and women place them... More

I like stopping in to Dragon Land Bakery when I am in Chinatown. It is a great place for a quick snack, a small dessert and a nice meal to walk around with for the afternoon of touring. Their pork buns are really good as is their crème cake. Buy a couple and sit in the park down the road... More

I stopped in this little Chinese bakery for some breakfast. I was unfamiliar with a lot of the offerings, which is exciting for me! I bought a steamed pork roll and then two different custard buns. They were all really tasty (my travel companions will agree), as was the coffee. All told, it cost me less than $5! (Just be... More

With endless booths and bakeries of gelato and cannoli right around the corner this is my favorite spot. The pastries are huge, fresh and delicious. I recommend the coconut bun, its to... More

Came here with friends and family for sponge cakes. My friend bought a dozen and was refused to have a box. They just squashed the whole thing into a bag. I got some bottled iced tea and asked for a plastic cup for my kids. "No cups"! Was the reply. You can have a plastic cup for a dollar each,... More

Nice selection of items on the menu. I would recommend the roast pork bun or the sweetened buns if you are not a meat eater. There are other buns that you can select but I usually stick to these varieties. The place is usually crowded during mornings and sometimes the service can be a little rude, but the place is...

We love to come here and get some baked pork buns (Char Siu Bao). They have an assortment of other types of buns which we will need to try but we never get past just ordering these. You can also get them steamed but we like the baked. Place is crowded & service is rushed but they have 2 women... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
