delicious ensaimada (filipino coconut bun)
so these are ridiculously good and available in Jersey City. These are soft, sweet and sticky coconut buns with a cheese topping and amazing amazing when put in a toaster oven for about 5 minutes.
get over there! the bakery is a chain from the philippines with many branches throughout california, and only one east coast outpost.

re: Produce Addict
unfortunately, I don't live in jersey, but lucky enough to live near woodside (Ihawan is my number one choice, but that's because I love their bbq), although I know there are tons of filipino places in the area. as for red ribbon, I only picked up the ensaimada, most other fiipino baked goods aren't quite different enough in terms of being a kind of cake, etc.
but definitely there should be some other great places, I'll ask around.
