We had the best meal for under $10 (for 2 people!) including fancy drinks that cost more than the meal itself.

The pork buns are to die for....and for under $1.

Everything we tried (and we tried a LOT) was delicious.

We always go here when we visit Chinatown. Best steamed pork buns that taste close to home. Always crowded and a long line forms by the door. I prefer the brown pork buns, 9$ for a dozen buns.

If you are looking for some of the best steamed pork buns, then look no further. My family of four each had one and ordered two plates of some different dishes. Everything was delicious and reasonable. Just do not go on there expecting to be 'catered to' as a tourist. This is a local, very popular, restaurant and they do not need to "bring in the tourists". We didn't have to wait long for a booth, our waitress was cordial - very limited English, and very 'no frills'. But, we would do it again - even if just for the steamed buns!

This reminds me of good old days. Waiters are all old men, and each of them are so special. Coffee level was good in Chinatown, and cheap yummy buns were my favorite.
