I'm seriously craving red bean buns...is there a Chinese bakery anywhere in Austin? Or an Asian grocery that sells them?

THANKS!

    Frozen or fresh?

    Most Asian groceries around town have frozen.

    MT Supermarket has fresh (not very good - dry, too airy, with little filling). Asia Market has good fresh red bean loaves. The best fresh red bean (and mung bean) buns in Austin, however, are in the Korean Han Yang market on Lamar.

      The grocery store in the Chinatown Austin shopping center on N. Lamar has them.

        Asia Cafe at 183 and Spicwood Springs/McNeil has them.
