ISO Chinese peach-shaped steamed buns
I'm hosting a 60th birthday for my dad and am wondering if anyone knows where to order shou tao, those peach-shaped, pink-decorated steamed buns filled with a sweet paste.
I found some small, frozen ones at T&T, but if there's a place where I can get them fresh, I think those would probably taste better.
Downtown Chinatown would be best, but Scarborough (Midland and Sheppard area) is a possibility too, b/c that's where we're picking up the food on the day of.
Thanks for any help you can offer!
Huh! I never considered that, silly me. Hmm. Do you know if your aunt ordered from downtown TO Chinatown? I haven't been in awhile, the two bakeries I can think of there are the one on Dundas (north side), just east of Spadina, and Kim Moon, way further down.
Any other suggestions?
There are many bakeries in the area:
Hong Kong Island Bakery (my favourite around here) @ spadina+st andrew
Ding Dong Pastries @ spadina+st andrew
Furama @ spadina+one block south of dundas
Kim Moon @ dundas+one block east of spadina
I feel like I'm missing one other bakery on dundas quite near kim moon with a name like "queen" or "princess"
I'm sorry but I don't know which bakery she would have orderd these from. These aren't difficult to do. I would just find a bakery closest to where you plan to be on the day of the celebration.
