Best place for Baked Pork Buns - Sac area?

I will be down in the Sac area downtown tommorrow, and wanted to get some baked pork buns to take home. What is the best place to go?

  1. Usually New Canton on Broadway has the best dim sum. I am sure you can get some to go. Call ahead.

    1. Besides New Canton, you can try ABC Bakery (1309 Florin Rd Ste F), Plum Blossom on J and 19th, and there's a little store/restaurant on 12th and U that has them too.

        sarah, thanks...which one is best do you think? I like it when they put lots of meat in the bun.

      2. Probably too late for today, but there's a little market on 16th around T called "Wah Mei", and three days a week, they bring in huge pans of a variety of dim sum to go. IIRC, they put them out around 1 or 1:30, and you sometimes have to stand your ground in a crowd of little old Chinese women who are elbowing you in the gut. I'm pretty sure it's Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
