I must say my craving for a good pork and vegetable bun (cai ro bao/baozi) is surprising me. It's not a food I have ever craved before, but lately the idea of a big pillowy cloud of steamed white bread wrapped around a meaty cabbage-studded filling sounds like it will really hit the spot.
I've tried a few places on Clement and one on Stockton today. Both places served me stone cold buns with stingy amounts of filling.
Any help? I would prefer Chinatown as it's within walking distance for me, but really I'd just like to file away some options that are better than where I've been. TIA
