Chinese pastry shops have become few and far between in Queens, but Fay Da keeps the tradition alive in Elmhurst, Forest Hills, Woodside, and Flushing. Here, they sell authentic confections like sesame balls, red bean rice cake, and puffy buns. And if you could believe it, most will cost you no more than ONE. DOLLAR.

What's more romantic than an evening with coconut macaroons? At Canelle Patisserie, traditional pastries are served in a Jackson Heights strip mall. It may sound like an odd #ValentinesDay date spot, but you'll understand once you sink your teeth into any of their sweets. #BakedInQueens (Photo: @instrumentofintuition)

Sugared, fried, and crisped to perfection are the jalebi at Maharaja Sweets & Snacks.

New York has a slew of famous babkas, but most aren’t as committed to quality ingredients quite like @babkabakers is. The Maspeth establishment imports non-GMO flour directly from Poland, which certainly adds to the appeal of the braided streusel bread. Learn more about the bakery, in bio, before running to get some for yourself. #BakedInQueens (Photo: @instrumentofintuition)

Astoria is home to countless Greek bakeries teeming with sheets of baklava, and @victorysweetshop is a leader amongst them. Find out what’s really behind their irresistible baked goods, breads, and more, in bio. #bakedinqueens (Photo: @instrumentofintuition)

We can all agree on one thing: Flushing, Queens is a great spot to celebrate #ChineseNewYear. This time around, it's the 🐖✨Year of the Pig🐖✨ and all about wealth and prosperity (plus 'lots of family and food, as per usual.) Find out the best restaurants to hit, in bio.

Very few things can ruin a night with this bowl of pasta from @vitevinosteria. But we've all had a good meal spoiled by another patron in the restaurant. (Perhaps they don't mind their manners or treat the staff poorly, for instance.) @abbymcarney had one such experience here, where she was forced to listen to an insufferable date night gone wrong. Head to the link in our bio for the full story.

The bagel is arguably the King Carb of New York City, and Bagel Oasis has been a pioneer since the beginning. The Fresh Meadows bakery has continually churned out handmade bagels since the early '60s, and stood out amongst the rest due to an interesting technique. Learn about it at the link in our bio. #BakedInQueens

Ever wake up *dying* for a flaky Italian pastry? Us too. Today's spotlight from our Bread & Grains issue is on La Guli Pastry Shop. The bakery is rooted in family connection that extends to its entire Astoria community. Regular patrons post up at a back table with an espresso and one of many authentic treats like cannolis, biscotti, or pignoli cookies. More at the link in our bio. #BakedInQueens

You can think of tortilla company Tortilleria Nixtamal as the cool kid on the block—they're regulars at retailers like the @dimestimes deli, plus a few fav spots such as @anejonyc and @casaenrique. Chances are, it's because their process hasn't changed from the family-run operation it's always been. Find out more about what makes the tortillas so irresistible, in bio. #BakedInQueens

Rudy's Bakery has been doling out sweets to Ridgewood natives since 1934. Luckily, not much has changed about the location aside from its versatile menu offerings. Here, you can find both classics like Black Forest cake and newcomers like oatmeal marshmallow sandwiches—and that's one of many reasons why they're a fave on our #BakedInQueens roundup.
