Summer treat series: Oakland Chinatown

Over the next month, Oakland North will be featuring a food series on summer treats in Oakland. Chinatown is the first installment in the series. One day last week, two Oakland North reporters, Dara Kerr and Kate McLean, wandered around Oakland’s Chinatown sampling all sorts of Asian treats, from lotus seed buns to basil seed jello to pork meat cookies.

The bakeries in Chinatown offer tons of different types of treats and after tasting quite a few, Dara and Kate narrowed their favorites down to their top 10, which are featured in the photo slideshow above. Below are the details where each treat can be found. Of course, there were hundreds of goodies they didn’t get to try, so if you have any Chinatown treat suggestions be sure to add them in the comments section below. Or, got an idea for another kind of treat we should try? Let us know!
