Chinese

Dessert

This Chinatown coffee shop and bakery sells traditional Chinese sweets and drinks like Thai iced tea and Hong Kong-style hot milk tea. It's especially known for its airy, melt-in-your-mouth sponge cake -- the original flavor is akin to angel food cake and has a slightly egg-y taste, but trendy and seasonal iterations are available as well, like matcha, coconut, strawberry, and pumpkin spice. Like all Chinatown gems, New Kam Hing is cheap.
