Random Food Thursday
From John Chao, biz dev guy: Food I bring to the WNYC office to get people to want to talk to me. It seems to be working.
- •Sesame balls from Golden Fung Wong Bakery on Mott Street in Chinatown. The biggest I've ever seen.
- •Pretzel Croissants from City Bakery and a bunch of chocolate chip cookies that became the instigator of a Lord of the Flies reenactment
- •Two dozen Cantonese egg tarts from Bread Talk (the best!) which disappeared in 5 minutes. Followed by hours of self recrimination about carbs.
- •A box full of fresh baked BBQ pork buns from Mei Li Wah on Bayard. 90% saturated fat, 150% amazebuns
- •Black and white cookies and mini schenkens (like a little cinnamon roll) from William Greenberg bakery on the Upper East side. All fancy like and confusing.
- •Two dozen fresh mochi from a tiny no name bakery on Broome. Three for like two bucks! Look on people who thought they were Chinese snoballs: priceless. Or at least more than two bucks.
- •Assorted meringues from the best Pasticceria Rocco on Bleecker. Like a rainbow in a box, wrapped in an enigma.
- •Miniature sponge cakes from Kam Hing Bakery - like little angel food cakes made by diminutive, lovely Cantonese bakery geniuses.
- •Babka chocolate and cinnamon, from Bread Bakery in Union Square. The mic drop of babkas.
