The top three picks for good roast pork buns
Mei Lai Wah. 美麗華 An old-school coffeeshop with grandfatherly-types manning the hectic counter. The roast pork buns here are especially popular among people who hear about this place through word of mouth. Place was newly renovated in August 2008 so now all of the old-school, old new york charm has disappeared as the grandfatherly-types try and smile in their orange polo shirts.
