best place to watch a fish asphyxiate while you drink coffee (2008)

DRAGON LAND BAKERY

The scum-soaked glass-top tables at Chinatown's DRAGON LAND BAKERY each contain a fish or two, gasping on its last breath of air. There is something infinitely artistic about sitting in the windowed street-corner bakeshop, munching an 80 cent sponge cake, sipping a coffee, and watching a gimmick die before your eyes. Shared tables intensify the sweet intimacy of people watching as does the sugared air (the table inmate has no odor).
