1. Bayulan Steamed Mini Pork Buns ($4.95 for 5)
- Tasty (and slightly fatty tasting?), flavourful broth inside.
- The golden-brown bottom looks suspiciously deep-fried. In any case, quite crispy in parts and that it can therefore snap and cause the soup to spill out.
- Basically you get a fried texture and flavour to #1 for just 60 cents more. The modest cost is really good enough that you should consider it, especially for take-out. Steamed buns don't travel very well in my opinion.
Counter service was pretty crappy toward my non-asian friend. The server managed to avoid eye contact for a long time even though she was already right at the counter waiting to order--to the extent that I had the vibe she was hoping my friend would leave, maybe so she wouldn't have to deal with an English-speaking customer (?).
