Took my mom to Koi Palace, in Daly City, yesterday for dim sum (warning - get there when it opens, otherwise long long waits). Had the egg puffs (I think that's how it's described) - very very good! Light and eggy on the inside, not too greasy or sugary on the outside. Fresh is obviously important, but it seems like the batter is also key (in contrast, my mom said they tried to find these same pastries in Vancouver but everything was hard or heavy, even though it was fresh.)
Anyone know of a place in Oakland that makes these as good? Thanks!
