Hong Kong style French Toast in downtown Toronto

Anyone know if there are any places to get HK style French Toast (deep fried French toast smothered in butter and syrup) downtown?
I know of a bunch of places in Markham but how about in the downtown core? I'm assuming Chinatown somewhere, but not sure which. I asked House of Gourmet but they said only during the day time. Has anyone tried it?
For reference, the photo is what I'm talking about
Sorry... Not HK style, but The Pickle Barrel used to do a deep fried Challah "brick" French toast, that was quite good.
Haven't been to one in years due to the generally average (or below) food, but it might be worth a shot for this one item.
That picture looks so reminiscent of an Indian-Pakistani dessert called 'shahi tukray'. Essentially an over the top dessert of deep fried bread soaked in cream and sugar. It's amazing, and I've only seen it served at Indian weddings. Rarely on a normal dessert menu at a restaurant.
