This traditional local branded bakery shop, is more than enough for you to explore their recipe for your entire life, not only the secret method to produce, but the persistency and the spirits of hardship.

Today, I passed by this bakery.  With a glance, I guess I have missed the lunch crowd and the Moon Cake festival.  Just like others, I like the moon cakes of this bakery.  This bakery may not be a favor with people who likes fanciful moon cakes, but to the local, we know he is someone standing on his own ground firmly, with pride and vision.  The good taste never changed!

The shop was established in 1938.  Since then, the hands of this traditional bakery shop never stop its hand movement!  With original recipe and without preservations, the art passed down from one era to another.  Bake instantly with fresh ingredients, this is the slogan for every single cake lovers of our nation.

During the Moon Cake Festive seasons, shoppers queue in rain and shine with paper carrier printed with the Chinese name on it.  If you have the cheek to ask them why not go for the fanciful cakes made of durians, birdnests, chocolate or even ice-cream!  I believe the answers are the same for sure!  “I love the traditional moon cakes”!

In fact, by looking at the long queue, it’s not hard to know they are not an ordinary celebrity, with fans from all ages and from every corner of our country.

English: A Bottle of Mexican Coke.

Though Moon Cake Festival is over and a snowing Christmas with Santa is arriving soon, but I still think this is just like a bottle of Coke in you and me, with sweet memories and sense of belonging, deep down in our homeland.

  1. I’m dying to try one of those special moon cakes Sydney. They look great!

  2. What a special place. I love when something is handed down from generation to generation like that!

  3. I’m confused. I see Coke as the opposite of a local bakery shop. Or local anything for that matter.

  4. What a popular place that bakery is. :)

  5. I love the design of that traditional brown paper bag with the red Chinese characters on them. I haven’t seen one for a long time now. I still remember the size and shape and the white-and-red string handles. I wish more shops will bring them back. Some designs are classics and should always be around.
