May May Bakery

We passed by May May Gourmet Chinese Bakery in between dumpling places yesterday.

When we're in the area we usually stop by to pick up a few of their bamboo leaf-wrapped sticky rice things, what I just call Chinese tamales. There were buckets of them on the sidewalk outside their kitchen ready to be cooked.

They have them with a bunch of different fillings. I usually like any of the ones that have egg or sausage. They also have a lot of prepared dim sum foods that we've never tried. Next time we're in the area I'll plan on trying those out as well.

the owner of may may was on local chinese tv news recently and said that he was about to close the store. He is getting old and wants to retire. but none of his sons or daughters are willing to take over the family business. what a shame. their zongzi (sticky-in-bamboo-leaf-things)are the best i can find in nyc.

Oh, that's too bad! I'm surprised no one else wants to buy the business.
