Typical Chinatown venue serving small bites to go. Quite big in size and not bad in taste, pork buns are especially good. Prices are ok too.

I have lived in Hong Kong for about 10 years now and I love these little tarts, which also makes me careful when trying it away from China. In this case, reviews did not lie, they are awesome and very well priced at 2.25USD each....More

Another bakery we like was out of egg tarts, so we tried this place. It’s probably going to be our first try next time.

Stopped by with some friends while visiting SF for work. It came highly recommend and I must say that the egg custard was worth the line we waited in. The line took maybe 20 min to make our way through, but I have heard that...More

Just like the cupcake place in Chicago - "been there, done that" mandatory at Golden Gate Bakery when in Chinatown. Erratic hours as one other reviewer stated, so make sure you know when they open. They ran out of Sesame balls with the customer before...More

This place makes one of the best egg tarts I've ever eaten...even in comparison with those from Hong Kong. Well, these ladies sound like they are from Hong Kong but probably have been in SF for a very long time. They have erratic opening schedules...More

Long lines all the time even near closing. The egg tarts were really Portuguese egg tarts. Always made fresh

As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's
Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique
neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic
streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs
awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on
dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who
gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or
practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands,
