Furama Cake and Desserts Garden

If you have never been to a Chinese Bakery and you live in proximity to down town Toronto I would suggest going to Furama as your first experience. There is a huge selection of savoury and sweet buns and pastries from traditional Chinese to western influenced desserts like the much loved Hong Kong style egg tart.

My companion ordered a selection of savoury buns. the one pictured contains a filling of crispy fried chicken breast and mayonnaise. I am usually hesitant to order items like this (bad experiences with dodgy meat) but the chicken in this bun was very fresh tasting and reminded me of something homemade. His total for the 3 buns after tax was around $3. If you're in a hurry and/or don't have much cash this is a great place to grab lunch or breakfast.

A glazed strawberry sat at the center of this perfect chestnut cream tart. for $2.80 you can't go wrong with this attractive and tasty dessert.

The presentation is very sweet. I love this little printed parchment paper that the tart was sitting on. It is covered in vintage kitchen utensil illustrations and random quotes.
