You know those sesame ball things? That are, like, a thin shell of dough filled with lotus seed paste, rolled in sesame seeds and deep fried? TC Pastry has an outstanding version of those, says gordon wing. The shell is very thin and crunchy, and not too greasy, and the golden lotus seed filling is quite pleasant. They’re 50 cents each. Also try their yeasty, savory pork buns–smaller than those uber-size Chinese-American buns you see lately, but delicious.
