Tao Hong has one wall filled with baked buns and pastries, a refrigerated case with cakes and mochi, and a variety of bubble teas. Be sure to get some big and poofy pork buns. Upon first glance, they look too bready, but once you open one, you’ll see that there’s mostly air inside, and it actually has the perfect bun-to-filling ratio. The sweet BBQ pork mixture has relatively big chunks of meat, and the bun is super soft, chewy, and a little sweet as well. There’s nowhere to sit, but Sarah D. Roosevelt Park is right across the street so you can enjoy one of their fresh fruit juices, an egg tart, and your pork buns over there.
