Shout out to Saint Germain Bakery which still has one location serving customers at Aberdeen Centre in Richmond during social distancing. You can also get their breads, pastries, cakes delivered to your home.
A few months ago, I picked up a variety of goodies: Matcha Mochi Buns, Chocolate Buns, Strawberry Buns, Taro Pastries, LongJing Tea Pastries, and 2 Salted Yolk Pies. Each of the items came out to be just about $2.
The buns were nicely light and fluffy while the pastries were buttery and flaky.
I liked the mochi filling inside the matcha bun. There was a reasonable amount of mochi incorporated. I have a brief video of the mochi filling in my Instagram post (swipe through).
