I swung by Sun Say Kai at the corner of Baxter and Walker (just off Canal) on the way to the jury room for a bun and coffee, and it was closed for renovations! I hpe that that is all it is, since this is one of my favorites. Not having much time, I went accross the street to Dragon Land, a very chrome-y place, and had an awful baked roast pork bun. The filling was too finely ground and too sweet, and the pastry tasted as if it had been microwaved, even though I got it off the shelf.
Where are the good buns??? I may only have one more day of jury duty, so I have limited opportunities to explore for myself. There has been a proliferation of sterile-looking places a la Marias.
