What you’re getting: Egg tart
One of the most popular Chinese bakeries in Chicago, Chiu Quon is located steps away from the Red Line Station, and is the perfect spot for a quick grab-and-go. There’s a variety of buns and pastries on display, and prices for most items hover around $1, making it a cheap way to fill up. Classics like BBQ pork buns, moon cakes, egg tarts, and sesame balls with bean paste are favorites, while a selection of cake slices -- ranging all the way from tiramisu to mixed fruit -- round out an impressively girth-y menu.
