Ho’s Bakery

Creative Tourist

Giggle at the name all you want, their buns are the business. Honey buns, cream buns, roast pork, coconut, and (mmm) red bean buns, all pillowy soft in that way that only Chinese baking can be. Our favourites, though, are the egg tarts, which are so decadently rich they should probably come with a gym membership. There are a few little tables inside, but if it’s nice out you’re better off sitting outside in the pagoda-topped benches arranged atmospherically around a car park. We defy you not to finish everything in your bakery bag long before you get home.
