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
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.
It isn't Hong Kong Style French Toast, but if you're looking for a deep-fried French Toast, you can find it @ many Portuguese Bakeries, the best being Venezia on Ossington. It's deep fried and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. No syrup or butter, but pretty darn delicious!
