Yung Sing Bakery

I found myself in the neighbourhood today and decided I'd give Yung Sing Bakery on Baldwin a shot, since several people have raved about it. Well, I'm confused to say the least. I was there just after the lunch hour and picked up a couple of buns and wu gok (taro wrapped pork-filled dumplings). The wu gok were very greasy. I know they're fried, but I've had many at yum cha that were far less oily. And the coconut bun was a disappointment also. It was probably baked this morning, but was not kept warm. It tasted slightly stale and the filling was a great disappointment when compared to what I've had elsewhere (the filling was ample, but lacked taste). I know it's a small store, so the minimal selection is understandable, but I'm used to a far wider variety of buns and a serve yourself style.

I'm guessing it must be a downtown kind of thing that I wouldn't understand coming from the suburbs. It's certainly a cute little hole-in-the-wall, but I won't become a frequent customer.
