Chinese pastries at Wonder Bakery
Time Out says
Posted: Mon Aug 12 2013
Showcasing the neighborhood's most striking displays of delicate, unique Chinese and European pastries, this 40-year-old veteran outshines its more famous rivals with a cute atmosphere and enthusiastic staff. If you're not seeking sweet stuff with your coffee—we love the salt-studded butterfly cookies ($1.45), a creamy slice of strawberry short cake ($4.50), red bean sesame balls ($1.35), lotus seed moon cakes ($1.35) or daily-made coconut tarts ($1.35)—stick to the mini savory pies enveloped under flaky golden shells and stuffed with fillings such as preserved duck egg, curry beef and barbecued pork ($1.45). Make sure to grab a loaf of the addictive coconut bread ($3.95) to take home.
