Does anyone make a decent hot cross bun in Hong Kong?

I guess in general I'm also looking for a decent, proper 'western' bakery - ie. not the Maxim's or Yamazaki variety, they are fine but a different animal altogether. And don't even get me started on the Real Bread Cafe in Soho - it's not eponymous.

  1. I had the MOST amazing hot cross buns from -- get this -- the bakery at the Park and Shop in Festival Walk (Kowloon Tong). Seriously. Their bakery was, in general, full of the most amazing bread, rolls, pastries... when I was there last they were employing an extremely tall European baker. Legit. ;)

      intriguing! I go to Fest Walk all the time, so I'll have to check it out. I've had some other bakery items from them - they were ok. Since Easter's come and gone, I wonder if I'll still be able to get any...
