Chinese, Korean, Filipino, Vietnamese, Japanese, etc eat steamed buns so you can find steamed buns in those ethnic stores, supermarkets or restaurants

Look in the refrigerator or freezer section in stores or supermarkets

T&T supermarket sells fresh ones near dim sum counter and in freezer or refrigerator section

So which of those are good? I appreciate the listing but I don't rely on yelp feedback.

Our favorite char siu bao is from Happy Dim Sum Bakery in Mississauga (https://www.yelp.ca/biz/happy-dim-sum-b ... rce=ishare).

The filling is really good, probably better than other dim sum places we have been to in Mississauga. We usually buy the frozen ones though and just steam them ourselves at home. They also sell the egg yolk bun (liu sha bao). Another frozen dish that we usually get is the stuffed crab claws that will need to be deep fried.

I wouldn't recommend their shiu mai though.

I get the cold ones at T&T, 4 for $5.99. Apparently you can get them cheaper in Chinatown but I live close to the Cherry St location.

Nothing wrong with supermarket packaged ones. Don't be a snob.


I buy these 6 for 2.99 or 2x 4.99. Good deal.
