The Chinese-American equivalent of a panadería. Lots of delicious pastries, both sweet and savory, and all cheap. Excellent source of nutrition for graduate students and suchlike. There are a number of them in San Francisco, including a really good one off the park square in Chinatown. Don't be afraid to point to order, it's hard to go wrong.

Examples: Beef curry bun, the ever-present barbecue pork bun, sausage roll, moon cake, cocktail bun, pineapple bun (mm!), wintermelon pastry, bean paste bun, mantou, etc. etc. None of these should cost you more than a dollar each, amd most should be substantially less. Many chinese bakeries also carry a few patently European items, which are usually quite delicious at half the cost of a "European" bakery.
