after a fine lunch at pho tu do (119 bowery - previously recommended here) we went across the street to get my son a pork bun fix and pick up some desserts.
we went to the shandy bakery (not sure I have the name right) on the corner across from pho tu do. there we had perhaps the best egg custard bun I have every eaten - perfect baked crumb top, just the right amount of custard, wonderful pastery.
we also had really incredible sticky rice balls - not for the unitiated - made from steamed sticky rice flour - they have something of the texture of very chewey jello - but are delicious - with chopped peanuts inside and rolled in coconut...
I have to go back to this place for lunch - chinese folks were all eating the same thing - a tin of sparerib looking things with a fried egg on top - don't know what it was, but it sure looked good... it must be a regional delicacy that everyone from that province goes to get or something :-) if I hadn't had one too many vietnemse sandwiches I would have ordered some just to check it out...
and no alpha hound, I didn't get a takeout menu - because the only one avaible was in chinese...
