Pastry Chef Sumaiya Bangee Shows Us Her New York Neighborhood

This feature was produced in collaboration between Vox Creative and General Motors Company. Vox Media editorial staff was not involved in the creation or production of this content.

If there is one thing this pastry chef knows, it's her sweets. Fortunately, Sumaiya Bangee's neighborhood, the Lower East Side of Manhattan, is full of them. (Plus delicious banh mi tacos.) Bangee is happy to hunt down her favorite pastries and doughnuts — she knows better than to stop at the same Doughnut Plant twice — and show us her homemade desserts and the tea recipe that her mother taught her.

Bangee is a semifinalist for the 2016 class of Eater Young Guns — which awards the industry's most promising up and comers. Follow in Bangee's footsteps and find her top restaurant picks in this map of New York City.
