carnation bakery on kissena

this is one of the oldies but goodies, a non-chain chinese bakery and if you catch their product fresh (I picked some stuff up around 2pm on the weekend) it will kick the ass of any fancy bakery in town, and at 75 cents a bun. their pineapple buns are amazing, but they have something called a "cheese danish" which is insane. basically the yellow coconut cream custard stuff, generously stuffed into a bun, and then with filo/layer pastry as a giant square on top of the bun itself. I got one when the guy was just pulling them off the rack and the thing was a hot, cheesy, custardy, layery bag of deliciousness. really crazy the crackle of the pastry top, the creaminess of the filling, the soft pillowiness of the bun, etc.

other items are way cheap and way big so I'd hit this place up. I just don't know when their actual timing is for putting stuff out but ya, it was really good.
