Twin sausage bun
There's been a recent influx of Asian bakery chains of late. On offer are prettied-up buns with flavours of taro, matcha and durian, frosted crinkly carrier bags with elegant sans serif fonts, and the best part: glass-walled production areas for deliciously hypnotic smell-evision.
I love watching the bakers make deft graceful movements that turn globs of dough into droolworthy works of art. Forget the zoo or the aquarium. I'd much rather spend my Sunday staring through the glass at the exhibits in an Asian bakery production line.
Breadtop at World Square adjoins the Asian grocery store Miracle, a deceptively well-stocked paradise with plenty of delicious things that beg to be taken home and sampled. And if the aromas don't drag you over to the bakery side, then the polished glass cabinets will: filled with precise neat rows of buns, cakes, mini muffins, mousses, swiss rolls and pastries for many an afternoon treat.
It's here that we purchased a matcha green tea mousse cake to celebrate my birthday last year. There have been a number of follow-up visits since then--for research purposes only, of course. The cellophane bags of green tea buns with red bean paste have been a popular purchase of late. But there are plenty of options. Dangerously too many, methinks.
