Good Mong Kok Bakery
Time Out says
A favorite of Chinatown locals, this tiny bakery has no indoor seating, but serves up well-executed delicacies to go.
On any given day in Chinatown's Portsmouth Square, you'll see locals perched on benches, shoveling in dumplings from steaming containers. It’s likely they got them from Good Mong Kok, a tiny bakery nearby. There's no indoor seating here, so follow the system in place: Wait at the entrance until you're beckoned inside by the fast-moving servers at the counter. You’ll find well-executed delicacies like melt-in-your-mouth shrimp har gow, flavorful pork shu mai, and sizable baked and steamed barbecue pork buns. Don't forget dessert: This spot is particularly revered for its custard-filled pineapple buns.
