The only places I have seem mini baked pork buns and mini egg custard tarts is at dim sum (Ton Kiang, Yank Sing, City View, etc) Does anyone know of a bakery in SF that makes them in the min size?
TC Pastry on Irving has both

Here's my old rec for TC Pastry for a similar question, including a link to a scale photo of the bao.http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/3502...
Thanks Melanie. I'm going to check out TC Pastry tomorrow. Do you recall if there are onions in the pork buns? I don't like when they mix onions in with the pork.
You may be able to order them from your favorite Dim Sum House give them a call.
Super Napoleon has mini pork buns. They don't have mini custard tarts but they do have mini custard buns and old wives' cakes. 5 for $1.30 or some ridiculous price like that. Excellent too.
thanks!! i'm thinking of going there now to try them. what exactly are old wives' cakes?
Candied wintermelon surrounded by a flaky dough. They look like flat shiny cakes. The pidgin pinyin might be: lao po bang.
The custard tarts there are excellent too, just not mini. My true faves are the custard buns (bolo bao).
