Hopia--What is it?

pearl Jul 23, 2003 11:13 AM

Driving back and forth along the Queensway, we see a bakery in a strip plaza on the north side...

And there's always a sign on the front of said bakery, saying "Hopia--and more!"

After a coupla years of debating what Hopia might be, I'm here to ask, what is it?
