Chinese Egg Tarts Anyone? Good places to buy them?

Hey Chowpeeps,

There used to be a Chinese restaurant called Kam Fong (?) something or other next to CVS and Hooters on 6th St. in Chinatown, they also had a small bakery/BBQ takeout in the front. To my knowledge, that was the only place you could get decent egg tarts, char sui bao, and sesame balls in the DC area. Theyhave been closed for awhile now. Booo.

Anyone have any intel on where another decent Chinese bakery might be? Maria's Bakery does not count. I've been to Kam Sam in Rockville, and there's been the occasional Korean baked goods place. But I don't really know of another Chinese Bakery that makes their own and DECENT baked goods. Anyone have any suggestions, besides going to Chinatown in New York?
