This is not a restaurant, it is grab and go. I mostly love the Hom Bow. Curry chicken, BBQ pork, my faves. If I don't gobble it up right away, I will buy a box to take home to grateful family! They are well organized, the line moves quickly.

If I'm in the Market and I need something quick to eat to hold me over, I'll stop here for a bao or BBQ pork skewer. I've had some of the cookies, and they're quite good. I'm not an expert in Asian pastries, so I haven't ventured outside of my usual go-to's.

Picked up a fresh Siu Boa on my walk to pikes place market in the morning. It was fresh and hot and delicious. Note it was large not small like the ones you typically get in the restaurants. I would recommend

Cheap savory and sweet pastries. Hum Bow (savory filled rolls) are $3 each and very filling. No seating so food to go only.

Whenever you see a long line, you pretty much have to give it a try. After walking by several times and seeing it was always busy, we opted to give it a try. What a great little find! Would go again!

First time visiting, and I was really impressed! Great hum bow. No place to sit, as this is a pick up and go place. I highly recommend it!

We loved our treats from Mee Sum so much that we stopped for more on our way back past this delightful little spot. Excellent pork bun, but the sesame balls were our favorite. Quick service, the food was still warm.

We stop by every time we visit Pike Place Market and enjoy the Red Pork served on a stick. It's the best!

If you're coming to Pike Market you must try one of these Hum Bows. It's a large crunchy yet fluffy round pastry with various sweem and savory fillings (though the dough itself is always sweet). It's so delicious, especially if it is just fresh from the oven.
