Golden Gate Bakery Egg Cupcake: No surprise that lines at famed San Francisco bakery Golden Gate Bakery were long for Chinese New Year, but I still didn’t expect it to take 80 minutes to get egg tarts.

I Mei egg roll: Box contains four individual packs of 3 egg rolls each. The Taiwanese snack is very lightly sweetened but definitely buttery, with a good amount of saturated fat. Black sesame seeds add flavor throughout. Texture is crumbly and generally satisfying. 3.0/5.0
