With no more than a signboard, this mantou shop is anything but fancy. But you know it's got to be must be something good if hoards of people are crowding around the store. Gulou Mantou specialises in denser, heartier version of the mantou. Steamed in giant metal baskets, these buns are so affordable (1.2RMB for a plain mantou) that it’s no surprise why this place has gained such traction within the Chinese community. They also do a red bean (2.5RMB) and a brown sugar version (2RMB), in which their giant portions and generous filling would make for the ideal walk-and-go breakfast food.
