About Us

Steam Buns

Since 1980, our family run bakery has been serving the very best chinese and filipino baked goods and pastries. In 1980, we started with our flagship Chinatown location and soon expanded to Richmond and Surrey to satisfy the growing demand.

From our Award Winning Apple Tarts to our World Famous Steamed Buns (Siopao) - BBQ Pork (Asado) and Chicken Deluxe (Bola Bola) - you can be sure everything is made fresh and absolutely delicious.
