I was in chinatown, spotted this bakery and decided to check it out. I bought custard tarts, creamed pineapple bun and bbq bun for under $5.00. This location isn't very big, limited in space and previous reviewer commented, their seating in the food court mall. The service is friendly, and answered my questions, and its a good deal with all the choices.
When I'm in the area, I will be back.
On the account of a friend, I've come here many a times before but never seem to remember the name. I came here again over the weekend for that bao fix, and this tiny storefront met the need nicely. There is a good assortment of sweet and savoury items (including cakes) and all the regulars are there. The buns are just a hair smaller than many other bakeries, but compared the reccession sized buns those bakeries have downsized them to these days, the buns here have remained the same size for as long as I remember. Very fresh, very soft, decent if not a touch scant on the amount of filling; the bbq pork bun is one highlight here as is the curry. Our half dozen hand picked choices came out to an average cost of around $0.90 a bun, a wee expensive, but I suppose times are tough all over these days and most places charge within range.
Fairly clean, they best make use of their tiny allotted space. Absolutely no space to dine in, but exit into the attached communal food court area and you could enjoy the buns there, or hide in your car..whichever.
The counterpeople there are reliable, polite, friendly - no unpleasant surprises. This is also another place where they individually wrap each bun with cellophane.
This bakery blends in the background with the rest but you won't lose here either.
Similar selection but better prices than Chinatown's T&T Supermarket. Service is efficient, not rude..and the bakery seems clean and professionally run. What else can be said? I've shopped here a number of times and have not been let down. I believe Sun Fresh Bakery has a bit more selection (but no cakes) and worse service.
