Watch the Chinese New Year parade with some dim sum

If you’re planning to catch the Chinese New Year parade in Chinatown this Sunday (February 14) starting at 9:30 a.m., consider picking up breakfast en route. At 882 Bakery & Dim Sum (525 Gore Avenue), you can get a “jumbo bun”, a recession-proof full-meal deal at just $1.50. Measuring five inches across, the bun is a fistful of steaming, pillowy goodness cradling a filling of pork, Chinese sausage, and salted duck-egg yolk. Look for the stainless steel industrial steamer out front, along with the sandwich board touting the pedigree of the Hong Kong–trained dim sum chef. For the kids, try the smaller 90-cent chicken bun.
