Wondering if anybody has any recommendations in Kaohsiung for bakeries/pastry shops with interesting or particularly delicious foodstuffs.
In particular, I am looking for things on the sweeter and more unique side - for example, not a fan of simple breads/buns, but Donutes just recently was selling “creme brulee bread” which was a crusty bread in a bowl shape filled with creme brulee that was quite good; besides that kind of thing (being sweeter and more unique), those small-sizes pastries they often display in the windows are right up my alley. Not a bit fan of “traditional” stuff you can get in the west like basically the entire assortment of cake slices that 85C sells.
I mainly know about the main chain places that appear in Google maps or are prominent in department store basements:
- Donutes (my favorite so far, by far - so many interesting things)
- Mini One (albeit highly specialized)
- Master Fang
- Mr. Mark (not much there for my tastes)
- It’s David (pared down version of Donutes)
- Butter a Lee
I’d love to know if there are any chains here that I missed - and maybe more importantly, independently owned bakeries that sell interesting, delicious, and/or unique pastries in the Kaohsiung area?
