The original location of this old-school Chinese bakery is in Chinatown, and we’re really glad there’s one on the North Side. Chiu Quon is fantastic, and you can’t go wrong with anything from their pastry case. They have incredible pork buns, sponge cakes, sesame balls, egg custards, and much more. Everything is made fresh daily, and there are plenty of tables inside, too. Just plan ahead - it’s cash-only.
