Any suggestions for any Asian bakeries out there that have freshly steamed bao zi (filled with pork or red bean or wahtever) that aren't the frozen/premade ones in a lot of those Asian markets?

    I have enjoyed the steamed buns at Tâm Deli, althought they aren't what typically brings me back. They have a good, fluffy consitency, but I personally don't love the pork/egg filling so I tend to pick around it. Other people I've brought have enjoyed it.

      Thanh Ni was a great surprise - although they aren't steamed to order, they are good, as are the ones at Tam Deli. At Thanh Ni, though, they are more like the chicken bao I miss - with discernable egg and sausage chunks in addition to the herby chicken...
