ISO: a tasty and trustworthy chinese bakery

so I can order a cake to be delivered to our Chinese friends in SGV for the new year.

Yes, the bakery must be chinese as I need them to write an appropriate greeting on the cake.
And I need them to take a credit card order over the phone.
And I need them to have people there who speak English because I speak not a word of Chinese.
And I need the cake to be really really good because the friends are picky eaters.

If they have a website, I suppose that might be a bonus as I could avoid the language issue that way. I know we bought some fine moon cakes at the bakery in the mall in SGV by the Wing Hop Fung ---Garvey and something, near the last remaining Mandarin Deli--but I can't remember the name of it and we've moved to Seattle.


mercy buckets chow friends.

  1. Kee Wah is the bakery you are referring to... I'm not sure if they are that good in English over the phone though.

    JJ Bakery with multiple locations makes really pretty and yummy cakes.

      Kee Wah! Thats the one I'm thinking of ---thanks!

      According to their website--- while they may not deliver, you can order a cake on line to be picked up that day. Not perfect but not bad since our friends live down the street from the bakery and there is certainly someone who can pick-up the cake....i hope!

      I checked JJ and I think I've had stuff from there before. Alas, they have no website.

      Unless I hear of something better, it looks like it will be Kee Wah.

        JJ does have a website: And they can take your credit card over the phone. I have done it before. I usually go there to order cakes. They haven't disappointed me so far. :)

    2. Your best bet might be Diamond Bakery, multiple locations with one in Monterey Park.

      Not sure there are any Chinese bakeries that deliver, however.

      Good luck.

        You know, I like diamond alot---they have been the source of many a moon cake. I'll have to see if they have a website. thanks.

      2. UPDATE!

        We ordered our cake from Kee Wah. Speaking to them by phone was not so good but the website worked just fine. They have lots of cake options........... We got a very large cake with a fu on it for about $42 which I think is not so bad for a bakery cake.

        The friends told us the cake was very large and quite tasty and enjoyed by all.
