On my latest trip to New York, I was privileged to try a few of the delicious bakeries in the Flushing area….

This is my first time in a Korean bakery, at Koryodang Bakery in Flushing off of 39th Avenue on Union Street just a few blocks away from the Main Street Metro station. I thought it was pretty classy inside and their baked goodies looked marvelous, but I also recognized a few buns that are popular in Chinese bakeries. Coincidence? Methinksnot. The decor is very classy, maybe too classy for a bakery.

My grandlil Thierry of the University of South Florida thoroughly enjoyed it though, especially his fruit danish.

A little bit north of the Downtown Flushing Main Street metro station is a favorite bakery of mine: Tai Pan Bakery. When stepping inside, your senses are immediately overwhelmed and intoxicated by the sweet aroma and flavors of the pastries and cakes. I love it.

Sweet, sweet glorious buns…

I order a few buns from Tai Pan Bakery with Eric including the pork filling bun, a coconut cream bun, and an egg custard tart as well as some soy milk to wash it all down with. They also have a unique almond egg custard that is colored white and has a sliver of almond in the middle. The perfect breakfast for me. The prices are relatively cheap, with most of the items ranging around $1.00 more or less.
