What's the best Chinese-style bakery in the area?

vgaw98 | Jan 23, 2009 05:13 PM

I am really missing the fantastic Chinese bakeries back in LA, especially the Taiwanese ones. What I've tried here just doesn't even compare so far. I thought I'd ask the crowd here and see if any gems turn up that I haven't tried or heard of yet. Thus far, I've had the buns from Maria's in Rockville as well as the bakeries in the two Chinese supermarkets in Rockville - I think that would be Kam San and Maxim's? I've also tried stuff from Shilla bakery in Rockville as well as the bakery in the huge Lotte supermarket up in Germantown - both had buns that looked great but tasted so dry and artificial as to almost be inedible.

Is there anything I'm missing, even in VA? If it's really fantastic, I'd be willing to drive out there.

Thanks in advance for any recs.
