Good place for Cantonese breakfast in Chinatown?

peanuttree | Jun 28, 201206:56 AM

Where in Chinatown can I get good cantonese breakfast? with all the staples, like

-Sweet soy milk (served hot)
-Savory soy milk (served hot, with the little pieces of fried tofu and scallions)
-Youtiao, the fried dough stick/cruller
-toasted sesame cake
-Radish Shaobing
-Peanut Shaobing (OMG tastiest thing in the world!)
-Rice roll (rice rolled up around some kind of meat/veg filling)
-beef sandwiches

And of course plenty of a not-too-fermented-taste chili oil that I can slather on everything

Basically, I'm trying to find the closest thing to Shanghai bun in Matawan, NJ, that serves this stuff on the weekends. New Yorkers, be noted, if you want a good authentic cantonese place with this amazing breakfast stuff, hop on the NJTransit train to Matawan (it is walking distance from the station). My god, their peanut shaobing (they spell it Su Bing) is AMAZING!

note, I am NOT looking for dim sum.
