Year of the Takeout Day 134: Wong Wah Bakery Inc.
Cream Bun from Wong Wah Bakery Inc. (83 Canal Street, 212-343-8077)
What beautiful bun!
Seriously, though: Ass-joke antics aside, this pastry deserves to be revered. The dough is similar to that bizarro/brilliant glazed hot dog bun sampled a few days back, except that it's overfilled with buttercream and dusted with coconut flakes.
This $.75 specialty is richly, satisfyingly sweet.
