New Town Bakery & Restaurant

Chinese in Gastown & Chinatown

It's the glass cabinets of Chinese cakes and savory snacks that lures most people into this orange-accented Chinatown fixture; pop in for well-priced pork turnovers ($2-3) or hearty steamed buns to go. Takeout is the point of this place but if you're hungry for more, snag a table in the busy dining area at the back and dive into dim sum.

There are also several vegetarian steamed bun varieties, and lots of tempting sweet pastries to turn your head. The free-entry Dr Sun Yat-Sen Park is not far away if you need a picnic perch.
