I love the produce department at Hong Kong Supermarket. It's large and you can find just about anything you want!
One of our other favorite spots in Chinatown is Prosperity Dumpling. From the exterior, Prosperity Dumpling doesn't look like much. There's barely room to stand in the store when you place your order. Everything on the menu is less than $2.00! We ate dinner there the other night. We ordered 10 dumplings, a sesame beef pancake sandwich, and an order of noodles. Grand Total =$6! We couldn't even finish all our food. How I love cheap entertainment!
A visit to Chinatown is not complete without a trip to Taipan Bakery. Taipan Bakery is a very shiny establishment with light pink accents. Unfortunately, the bakery ladies wouldn't let me take a photo of the store. Like many places in Chinatown, pretty much everything at Taipan Bakery is 99 cents. Here's a coconut creme bun (my personal favorite) and a chocolate mousse (John's favorite).
Taipan Bakery also has great fruit milkshakes with tapioca pearls (much like bubble tea). You can see the pearls ("sago") in this photo.
