Donut Delight Oriental Pastries, Union City

Who wouldn’t be intrigued by a place called Donut Delight Oriental Pastries? And, yes, as promised, it has one counter with donuts and a second case with a selection of dim sum-ish pastries.

I bought a curry beef turnover, and took the picture below outside on top of the hood of the car.

But the proof is in the taste . . . and this was gawd awful. Moldy, old refrigerator taste combined with rancid beef fat and Crisco pastry. I spit out the one bite and dumped it in the garbage bin conveniently located outside.

I had also purchased a sesame ball. This was displayed on top of the counter and didn’t have the stale storage taste to it. Not terrible, reasonably thin with lotus seed filling, but not special either.

This is in the same strip mall as Bakery La Mejor, and indeed La Mejor is a much, much better bet.
