Year of the Takeout Day 87: Mei Li Wah
Egg Yolk Bun from Mei Li Wah (62-64 Bayard Street, 212-966-7866)
Eating an egg yolk bun feels like a combo of robbing a bird's nest and inhaling a creamy dessert.
These soft spheres of rice flour ($2.75 for three!) contain a plentiful amount of yolky, yellow custard and are too delectable not to inhale instantly.
