I went to Golden Steamer for breakfast and got two buns....one pork and one pumpkin. Total bill was under $2 and they were both DELISH! Highly recommend if you are in Chinatown area.

I tried the pumpkin bun which was amazing. It was like a creamy sweet pumpkin soup wrapped in a soft roll. In addition, it was only 1 dollar, which is a steal in New York. It will be a must have, when I return to...More
