Chinese Breakfast - Cheap, Good and No More Info

oakjoan | Aug 30, 2006 04:57 PM

My husband has lately been buying bahn mi for breakfast from Cam Huong on Webster in Oakland. He eats these in the office, all the while yelping about how hot they are and getting up to take a soda out of the fridge.

Today, as I was waiting in the car (not being in the mood for bahn mi), I noticed that next door they were selling bao and lots of other dim sum-type delights. I've never gotten anything here and don't even know the name. I popped in and purchased 2 pork bao(one baked, one steamed)and one of those beauteous shrimp things that have ribbons of deep fried dough sticking up decoratively all over them. This set me back $1.80!!!!!! That's right, under 2 bucks.

They were quite good. I now have another breakfast option. Life is good. I know you guys will all say, "So what's the big deal, we have dim sum for breakfast at least 3 times a week. How did you get so lame?"

Anybody know the name of this place? It's tiny and on the other side of Cam Huong from Shanghai.
