Every Chinese Vancouverite of a certain age remembers weekly shopping expeditions to Chinatown for Asian supplies and ingredients. The reward for being well-behaved included a box of assorted baked goods from Maxim’s, full of soft-bellied barbecue pork buns, curry beef buns, and richly set egg tarts. These treats still hold allure and are now available at a various Vancouver locations, along with outposts in the ’burbs.
