Chinese bakery Questions

tomaneng | Mar 5, 2007 04:54 PM

I am heading to Chinatown on Sunday to buy food for my second grade class and their parents for a MOnday breakfast to celebrate the completion of the students' study of China. Questions:

At what time do the bakeries open/have the best selection?
Which bakeries are best?
Any suggestions for particular sweets or savories to try, particularly those that travel well and can be served at room temp?
If there aren't english translations of the items, will staff usually be proficient enoughin English to help me out?

TIA
