Recommended Chinatown bakeries?

poutinelover | Jan 31, 201108:03 PM

Whenever I'm in Chinatown, I have a difficult time trying to decide what bakery to buy from. I've done a search and found mainly recommendations for pork buns and more savory items. I'm curious if fellow chowhounders have a particular favorite bakery and also which bakeries are better for certain items. I saw that Lau likes Ka Wah and they have good egg tarts. Any other recommendations? Where are the tastiest pineapple buns, cakes, fresh sachima? On a separate note, I've been on the hunt for fresh sachima (made with gooey honey) which I remember from my childhood but continue to come up empty-handed. Is there any to be found? I feel like I scoured every bakery in Chinatown! TIA!
