The 101 Bakery carries Taiwan style baked goods, a hipper version on the Chinese baked buns, and inspired to create daring and different pastries. The Taiwan bun jolts the taste buds and is perfect with a Taiwanese bubble tea or other freshly made baked goods.
“We need these unique bakeries to give us knowledge about what other nationalities eat and how they are a tradition to one’s culture. Although there are large overlaps in the products sold such as Hong Kong-style and Taiwan-style baked goods, there nevertheless remain significant differences between the two types,” said the owner Leo Wang. “For instance, bread cake and pineapple tarts were developed in Taiwan-style bakeries, while the cocktail bun is a Hong Kong-style product. We offer these items because we want people to taste the world in their own backyard.”
