Ice cream puffs at Wonder Bakery in Chinatown!
Chinatown is perfect for revisiting old favorites: Dim sum at Golden Dragon, you-know-what at Pho 87, the first Phoenix Bakery, Philippe The Original… Wonder Bakery is up there, too, right next to the slightly miniature statue of Sun Yat-Sen kicking back on his big chair. Besides egg tarts and pineapple buns, they have Thrifty’s ice cream (another o.g.) and you can order it in a cream puff. Not a bad deal for less than 5 bucks, and the scoop size is comparable to what you’d get in the cone–but with a yummy pastry!
Pro tip: Stop taking pictures and eat the damn thing before it melts.
