Foursquare Tips

  • Pass on the signature pork buns, which have been less impressive of late, but the rice rolls, congee, and steamed lotus paste buns are worth a buy.
  • Still hungry after a night out on Bayard Street? Hard to believe, but Mei Li Wah's Big Bun will take care of you. Stuffed with chinese sausage, pork, and salted egg, it's the guiltiest of delights.
  • Avoid the steamed roast pork buns here and stick with the famous baked version. "These soft, lightly glazed buns dont skimp on the saucy, sweet and savory roast pork filling."
  • Baked pork buns - get one, get a dozen, get a couple dozens and make new friends!
  • Food is good and reasonable but the waitress are rude. Decided to stay and eat instead of leaving got pushed outta the door because we had to go orders instead of eat in
  • Pork buns are amazing and cheap. Also try hot ginger tea!
  • 99% Filipinos go here! The owners know what you are talking about if you order siao mai and siao pao!! Cheap and delectable, your money is worth a dozen of the steamed siao pao! Lami kaayo! Sarap! ;)
  • steamed pork buns have a disappointing dough to meat ratio, but I like the baked pork buns. pork shumai are the bomb.
  • Had steamed pork buns
  • The baked roast pork bun sold here is definitely the best in Chinatown. The filling is tender and savory-sweet and the outer shell baked to the perfect sheen. Best of all, it's a mere $1.
  • Not as good as it used to be. Might as well go around the corner to Hop Shing
  • Best pineapple buns in NYC.
  • I must say - worst dim sum in CT. I don't know what was worst, the waitresses stank ass face or the chewy food. And how can you serve dim sum and not have tea ? Like dude. Really? Never coming back.
  • Bad dimsum, sour coffee, bad service, and overpriced try somewhere else
  • Best pork buns in the city! For 90 cents :)
  • FYI the famous roast pork buns are now $0.90 each and still worth every penny
  • After the baked pork bun head across the street to The Original Chinatown Ice Cream Factory for some yummy ice cream.
  • Order correctly so you don't piss off the counter people
  • Roast pork buns are where it's at... especially at 80 cents a pop. I make it a foursome. One for now, one for later and two for the fridge.
  • Order their deep fried bananas. They are out of this world!
