Sunflour – Shanghai, China


A friend brought me to this place and didn’t know such a nice bakery cafe exist.  The owner of this place is a Hong Konger and family line came from Jiangsu, China. Went to the Pudong branches, both branches were close on Sundays. So had to catch a cab back to their main branch in Puxi.  We were pretty lucky ‘cos at 12.30pm, we managed to get seats as I heard this place has really long queues. I really like bakery cafes as I aspire to open one myself in future… but for now, no capital.. ;P Anyways see my comments with the pictures below:

Glorious breads!!!
Cakes and dessert section
Love the display
Friend’s Salmon Tartin… smoke salmon ona slice of homemade walnut bread… a wee bit salty.
Grilled Chicken Salad for me
The latte was good. Milk used is not the sweet type. They use illy beans… can’t go wrong.
Shortly after we got our seats… told you we were lucky!
Their famous coffee eclair
With loads of filling
Their famous Sun bread.
Bill… pretty affordable as compared to Element Fresh
I went to the outlet at first address… the other 2 are in Pudong area.

Portion: Average.

Service: Pretty good.

Ambience: Comfy.

Price: See second last picture.

RTE (Return To Eat): Yes!!!

哈肯舖手感烘焙 Hogan Bakery – Taipei, Taiwan


Most tourists who visits Taipei don’t go for bakeries like I do. Cos I have a passion for breads! I just can’t resist them and I heard from my friend in Taipei, she said this is an award winning one. So since I was there for lunch, I went there to get some of their breads to try. Breads are good but I still feel Top Pot Bakery has a better texture to their breads.

Me outside the store
Inisde the store… super crowded
Sausage baguette
Some cheese bread
Ham and cheese

Rating: 5/5

Taste: Very good. Different texture from Top Pot Bakery but nice nevertheless. Didn’t try their award winning one cos all were sweet. I’m more to savory side.

Portion: Average

Service: Very good

Ambience: A little crampy when choosing the bread… maybe cos of my size… ;P

Price: See bill

RTE: Yeah!

Location: They have 6 outlets. The one I went is at Banqiao. http://www.hoganbakery.com.tw/eshop//article/index.php?ncid=79
