On Friday around 5pm when we're strolling up the northside of Broadway, my mom said, "did you notice that woman eating the steamed bao was swinging a plastic bag full of more bao? Did that look like a gai bao? Why do think she has so many?" I replied, "Yeah, I saw that. Maybe someone around here has a discount deal right now."
Then a couple doors up, we noticed some shoppers crowding in the door of Broadway Dim Sum. I sent my mother in to find out the story. A table near the door was piled with baked goods and various dim sum, and the girl standing over it said they were three for a dollar. We tried the no mai chi (coconut covered mochi balls) that were topped with a single peanut. These were filled with chopped peanuts and coconut and had a nice chewy texture. For two bucks, we got seven of them in a styro.
It's been years since I've tried anything here and I don't remember liking the food that much. But these were good, and other things might be worth trying. The baked buns looked good too.
What else do 'hounds recommend here?
