It’s been a while (10 years or so) since I’ve eaten Chinese baked goods. We used to always have something boxed up in the kitchen of China Wok, my old employer, to munch on while I was sitting outside your job waiting for your bitchmade self to give me a 50 cent tip and blame it on the guy from accounting.
So reminiscing on the old days, Sarah and I stopped by Wei Hong Bakery (contact info below) a few weeks ago and was greeted by a line trailing nearly outside the door. Once inside the aroma of dopeness filled the space. Three large cases, two tables and 3 freezers proudly displayed their products. We opted for the following:
Some coconut jawn:
Part of another coconut one cause I ate the other half.
Yes, that’s a hot dog.
(not pictured: the banging as fuck beef curry and bbq pork buns- obviously they didn’t make it home.)
I have no idea what these things are called so deal with it. Regardless, shits were cheap. I want to say each item was under $0.75 so we got a gang of ’em. Next time you are fiending for a doughnut or bagel, switch it up and go to your local Chinese bakery.
