Excellent bao buns. Delicious Moon Cakes. All around great Hong Kong style bakery. I do want to point out Asian and Chinese are not interchangeable even though many of my Chinese friends seem to think China is the only country in Asia and too many of my White friends seem to think Asia is a country. There are no Indian or Japanese baked goods here, just being clear. The store is immaculate, pristine, they are fastidious about minimizing viral contamination. All customers are masked, I felt safer here than at home. I’ve seen dirtier surgical theaters. I don’t get the comment that they don’t practice social distancing, there was definitely safe space between customers. In fact it felt a little lonely.

This was the first bakery I saw after I finished lunch and decided to stop in to pick up stuff to snack on later. I’m really glad I did because all the things I tried here was very good. Some of the best ready-to-reheat BBQ pork buns I’ve ever had and at a fantastic price ($7 or 6). They also have other variety of buns available. The sponge cake was awesome! The cream bun was also yummy. ….| \ _ , , , – – , , _ , …/ , ` . – ‘ ` ‘ . _ \ – ; ; ; , _ ..| , a – ) ) _ . ; . ( ` – ` – ‘ – ‘ ‘ – – – ‘ ‘ ( _ / . _ ) – ‘ ( _ \ _ ) 2020

It’s clean inside with fresh bakeries. They need to figure out a way to social distance inside. They don’t have limited entry. Not safe.

I love trying new bakeries in the city. And with Fat Rice still being closed I was lookkng for a Portuguese egg tart fix. I came across this place on Instagram and knew I had to stop. It was affordable to tey whatever treat you wanted. So we had a red bean moon cake, lotus moon cake, pork cookie, egg tatt, and Portuguese egg tart to try. Even though I came for the tarts, ill go back for the moon cakes! They were full of nutty flavor that I had never really had before, and for only $1! The regular egg tart was kinda gross and not sweet at all. And the Portuguese version was alittle under cooked. And we knew the pork cookies would be different but it had an ok sweet and salth balance going on that we were happy to try but wouldnt get again.. But overall I would go back amd give them another go (their buns looked really tasty too)

The prices are higher at this Chinatown bakery but theres something about the baked goods here that are better than others. They are a bit bigger and they also don’t seem ‘burnt’. I’m partial to underbaked bakery items. The pineapple topped breads are $1.25 here and the Portuguese egg tarts are $1.40. The regular egg custard tarts were $1.30. The Portuguese egg tarts are creamy and wonderfully delicious. Seems a bit pricey when I used to remember all these items being under $1.00! But the space is clean and renovated and more modern feeling.

We were in Chinatown and I heard about this place so I decided to check it out. They have a lot of variety of interesting pastries and the price was ok as well. I got: Portuguese tart: super yummy, custardy and creamy and refreshing. Egg tart: very eggy and also super yummy. The crust was perfect Coconut tart: for all the coconut lovers, this hits the spot. Pork sesame cookie: very interesting, the pork tasted like char siu and the sesame brought in interesting taste and flavor. It was a hit and miss Overall though, this place is pretty good and I definitely like the variety of things they had here.

A wonderful bakery that specializes in Hong Kong sweets. Located in Chinatown, this shop features a huge variety of asian pastries. It was hard for me to choose what to buy since I wanted to try just about everything. There were buttery, flaky croissants, macaroons, fruit and cream filled pastries; all lined up and ready to be devoured. There were a lot of people that day as well, maybe because it was the weekend. I ordered a croissant just because I wanted to see how it tastes compared to French pastries. The croissant has a wonderful crisp and flaky outer shell and a moist inside. I really enjoyed the pastries and would definitely come back again.

Billed as Chicago’s “oldest traditional Chinese Bakery,” the flagship at 2253 South Wentworth Avenue an updated location with modern signage, Chiu Quon Bakery & Dim Sum has been serving residents of the Windy City since 1986. Owned by Joyce Chiu and brother Matthew, their no-frills approach to Pastries, Cakes, Buns and more having additionally entered Uptown with further expansion planned, it is from 7:00am until 8:00pm daily that guests are welcomed – COVID-19 currently seeing extra safety measures implemented at a space that already appears quite clean. Cash only then and now, with dining area currently closed but take-out sales faring well thanks to Chiu Quon’s recent partnership with Facebook advertising, it is from over 100 daily items that diners must make choices, many of them identifiable to those familiar with Chinese Cuisine but others previously unseen. Purporting to use “the finest Ingredients,” a dubious statement considering the low price point, it was at a cost of just under $17 that ten choices were bagged, a lack of seating finding the Taro Bun enjoyed on nearby church steps while Black Sesame baked similarly had an unpleasant gelatinous center as though it was undercooked. Next sampling a refrigerated Walnut Bean Paste Cake, the Pastry on this as well as a “mini” Moon Cake buttery around well-textured Filling, suffice it to say that arriving immediately after Egg Custard Tarts emerged from the oven was fortuitous – both Hong Kong and Portuguese styles still jiggly with *better* largely a matter of personal taste. Taking a chance or two before finishing familiar, Chiu Quon’s Sesame Pork Cookie undoubtedly an acquired taste, it seems hard to believe anyone might enjoy a “Peanut Rice Cake” that eats like sawdust in a flavorless Hostess Snoball, a far better taste and value offered by textbook Sesame Balls or golden Dough baked around subtly sweet Lotus Paste.

Quarantine / COVID-19 Review + Pre-COVID-19 Review: Came on the weekend and they had quite a selection of items as seen in the photos. I love their buns so much especially in college. If you order in bulk, you’re able to get a slight discount. They also have a fridge with frozen items if you’re looking to make store items in your freezer to steam later on. They’re pretty good about no in-store dining and customers staying 6 feet apart. They also have something separating the items and the cashier from the customers which is nice. Custard buns and bbq pork buns are really good and I don’t even eat pork that often. I’ve also had their sponge cake before which is cheap and tasty! I love that they have both normal custard egg tarts AND Portuguese egg tarts. We used to love getting one of each to be able to taste both and trust me, there IS a difference. Minus one star because they are CASH ONLY even though they’ve been in business for over 30 years now it seems. Maybe time to move to accepting credit cards.
