When you roll out of bed on a Saturday and all that’s in your pockets is $6 and a party clown’s business card, Good Mong Kok Bakery is a good place to start piecing you life back together. This small Chinatown shop makes good dim sum, and you can get a pork bun and a few types of dumplings for less than however many bills you had left in your pocket. It’s better to go before 10:00am so there’s less of a line, and once you get your food (don’t forget to ask for utensils), take a walk around Chinatown while you try to solve the mystery of where and why you got a clown's number.
