Golden Steamer

143A Mott St. New York, NY 10013 | Chinatown | 212-226-1886

Location Description:

This steamed-bun specialist offers a plethora of bao, filled with almost everything imaginable-lotus seed paste, egg custard, pumpkin, pork with greens and egg, chicken and ginger, salted egg yolk, and so on. The fluffy, cloud-like, white mantao that encases each filling is made on the premises, and you might catch a glimpse of a fellow kneading and cutting the dough in the back. You can also grab a few dim sum items to-go, like chewy turnip cake, gelatinous sweet sesame rolls, and fried spring rolls.
