Grab a set of tongs and a tray, and choose among the pastries, buns and loaves at Bread Corner, an unassuming Asian bakery that turns out refined baked goods that are less sweet than traditional offerings. Items with custard fillings are especially good here, including a custard Danish and a Portuguese egg tart. And by all means, don’t leave without buying a loaf of thickly sliced milk bread. Toasted and spread with butter, these pillowy hunks are divine.
