While this tidy shop, situated in the open-air Chinatown Square complex, offers a tempting selection of Eastern and Western desserts (think mango pudding alongside slices of New York cheesecake), we say the real magic happens in the savory department. Try the curry beef turnover (.95), a supremely flaky triangle of puff pastry surrounding beef purée with a hit of curry heat that sneaks up and lingers. Another favorite is the curry chicken bun ($1), essentially a substantial savory donut stuffed with a spicy chicken and vegetable mixture that calls to mind Indian samosas.
