Everybody probably has their favorite unusually named Chinese eatery. Sometimes the name results from the misunderstanding of the English language, like Strange Taste Restaurant which used to be on Catherine and Henry, and which I mentioned in The Search For General Tso documentary. Then there are those that are just inexplicable, such as the newly opened Go Believe Bakery on Grand St., across from the subway station. Taking over from the predecessor Sweet House, Go Believe continues to sell Chinese buns up front and real dim sum in back. But they've added a new layer of savory eats on a separate picture menu. The headliner is their Peking Duck Bun, kind of like what you get at Corner 28 in Flushing, but bigger. (However at around $3, I'm not sure if it's 3 times a big as Corner 28.) It's made with the West Coast style mantou bun and has the traditional filling, and is quite good. Indeed, I was so excited I forgot to check out the rest of the picture menu which features various styles of crepes. I also forgot to try the 50 cent bun of the day special. Go Believe Bakery is at 239 Grand St.
