Editorial Review of Captain Bakery & Cafe

It's no small blessing that the prices at this seemingly unspectacular Chinatown bakery rarely creep above the $1 mark. There is so much to savor at Captain that it's easy, whilst perusing its glass-encased delights, to over-indulge. Snack, meal and dessert items abound, such as shrimp and pork turnovers, red bean paste cake, mango pudding, peanut sticky rice and banana rice cake. The list goes on and on, in direct proportion with the stomachache thatís sure to follow those whose eyes outpace their stomachs. The bakery has ample seating, but itís not a particularly appealing place to linger. Instead, take advantage of its wonderful food and cheap prices to go and head for the lake. If you like your buzz to be more of the coffee than the sugar variety, it may be a good idea to ask for your beverage unsweetened.

Average cost: <$10
