Yimster's post about the San Bruno restaurant with good baked BBQ pork buns reminded me I would love to find good baked buns in SF's Chinatown. Does anyone know of a place? Thanks!

    YOU's is the place. We live in the area. The best filling, and reasonable priced too.

      I like Cafe Bakery's best on Noriega in the Sunset (usually sold out in early afternoon) followed by YOU'S Bakery on Broadway below Stockton in Chinatown.

        I think anything at Golden Gate should be good. Do not remember them since I now I mostly buy egg tarts there. My cousin swears by the ones from Easten Bakery on Grant, she has them a family parties but I normally eat the other goodies (too much great food to fill up on a Pork Bun). Chinatown has better steamed buns.

        Other places are

        Napolean
        Gorumet Delight
        New Wing Sing

        They all have baked buns and I have had all of them in the past but I normally buy baked bun in the out of Chinatown.

            Golden Gate Bakery's pork bun are my favorite. There is the perfect ration of pork to bun, the bun has a nice touch of sweetness and the pork is good in a sauce that has a little edge almost like there is a touch of alcohol in there.

              Golden Gates are my favorite as well also their custard and coconut tarts, and macaroons!
