Butter Baked Goods

I love Butter Baked Goods. They are an adorable bakery located in Dunbar, several blocks from 41st Avenue. They serve a large variety of bars, brownies, cookies, and various twists on classic treats like Oreos and Wagonwheels. During my most recent visit, I had several of their bars (Bajillionaire, Hello Dolly, Coney Island), and Peanut Butter Sandwich.

Bajillionaire Bar ($3.50):


3.5/5
This contained caramel on top of a shortbread crust and is topped with dark chocolate and sea salt. The caramel was sweet, thick and gooey. The shortbread crust was tender and buttery. I did find this to be too sweet, however.

The Hello Dolly ($3.50):


3.5/5
This consisted of a granham crust topped with condensed milk, chocolate, pecans, and coconut. The cookie was tender and buttery. There was a great amount of topping; with the chocolate, nuts and coconut pairing incredibly well. It was a bit on the sweet side, but not as much as the Bajillionare Bar.

Coney Island Bar ($3.50):


4/5
This consisted of a brownie topped with marshmallows and coconut. The brownie was quite fudgey and dense, and had a perfect bittersweet flavour. I also quite enjoyed the marshmallows, which were fluffy and not overly sweet. I did find the coconut flavour to be a bit subtle.

The Peanut Butter Sandwich ($4):


4.5/5
This consisted of a peanut icing sandwiched between two peanut butter cookies. This was always my favourite treat form Butter Baked Goods, and I always have to get it whenever I visit. The cookies were soft and melted in my mouth, while the icing provided a great sweet and salty flavour.

I had a great time at Butter Baked Goods. Even though a few of the treats were a bit on the sweet side, their brownies were tasty and their peanut butter sandwich is worth visiting for alone. This is a bakery that I think is definitely worth checking out.

Janice Cakeshop

I don’t go to Richmond often. I had no idea that the 430, which goes to Richmond, comes like once every 30 minutes on Sundays. I found that out during my visit to Janice’s Cakeshop. They are a small Asian/Chinese-style Bakery located in Richmond. As their name suggests, they make a large variety of cakes, as well as other baked goods. During my visit, I had several of their cakes (Green Tea Mousse, Fresh Mango, Lemon Cheesecake and Chestnut Cake), as well as a Pork Floss Sandwich, a Ham and Egg Sandwich, and a Pineapple Bun. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any pictures of the bakery, so I don’t know the exact prices for their goods, but they are fairly cheap.

dav
Fresh Mango, Green Tea Mousse, Lemon Cheesecake, Chestnut Cake

Pineapple Bun (around $1.50):


3/5
The bun was fluffy and soft. The topping was crispy and provided a nice sweetness; unfortunately, I did find the bun to be a bit too plain to enjoy on its own.

Pork Floss Sandwich (around $1.50):


3.5/5
This consisted of pork floss and cheese with a clear, slightly sweet paste on whole wheat bread. The whole wheat bread was a bit dry and grainy for me. I really enjoyed the pork floss and the paste however.

Green Tea Mousse Cake (around $4):


2/5
This consisted of layers of green tea mousse and sponge cake. The cake was fine, being light and fluffy. Unfortunately, I did not like the mousse at all, which as thick, gummy, and utterly flavourless.

Fresh Mango Cake (around $4):


3.5/5
This consisted of layers of sponge cake sandwiching mangoes and cream. The cake was light and fluffy while the mango was sweet and tangy. I found the flavours to be a bit too bland, but this is definitely a good choice for anyone who wants something lighter.

Ham and Egg Sandwich (around $1.50):


3.5/5
This consisted of white bread sandwiching slices of ham and eggs, and what appears to be mayo. The bread was much less dry compared to the whole wheat from the Pork Floss sandwich. I initially found the sandwich to be a tad bit bland, but the interior was actually flavourful, with the mayo providing some richness to go along with the bread.

Lemon Cheesecake (around $4):


4/5
The cheesecake was quite light and fluffy, and had a great fresh, lemony flavour. The crust was also crispy. This is a lighter option to a regular cheesecake.

Chestnut Cake (around $4):


4/5
This consisted of sponge cake that’s sandwiches with chestnut paste and whipped cream. The cake was light and fluffy while the chestnut paste was creamy and wildly sweet.

In spite of the long wait for the 430 to come along, I really enjoyed my trip to Janice Cakeshop. With the exception of the green tea mousse, I quite enjoyed all of their other cakes, and their sandwiches were also quite good. The prices are also very reasonable. Definitely a bakery/shop that’s worth visiting.

La Gateau Bakeshop

I know that I shouldn’t complain snow (it’s Vancouver, and compared to most other cities both in Canada and the US we’ve been having it pretty good), but I just want winter to end already. Just when I thought that we were going to get out of this winter unscathed we get a cold spell…and with it snow…and probably even more snow for the next 2 weeks. Ugh.

Fortunately, I was able to make a trip to La Gateau Bakeshop before the first snowfall and all the buses breaking down and getting stuck half way up a hill. The latter is a small bakery located on East Hastings, not far from PNE and Playland. They seemingly special in custom cakes, but also offer cupcakes, mini cakes and other treats. I had their Red Velvet Cupcake, Salted Caramel Chocolate and Almond Cream Fruit Tarts, and Earl Grey Mini Cake.

Red Velvet Cupcake ($3.25):


3/5
The cake itself was pretty tender and moist. There was a good layer of cream cheese frosting. Unfortunately, I found it to be a bit too thick and lacking in flavour. I also felt that it had a slightly unpleasant aftertaste.

Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart ($4.75):


3.5/5
The crust was a bit blond, but quite tender; however, I did find it to have a slightly odd freezer-burned taste. I really enjoyed the chocolate and caramel ganache, which melted in my mouth and had a fantastic caramel flavour and sweetness.

Almond Cream Fruit Tart ($6.50):


3/5
This was filled with almond paste and cream, and was topped with fruit and a macaron. The macaron was quite airy and crispy, although quite sweet. I quite enjoyed the almond paste, which had a nice fragrance and was lightly sweet. Unfortunately, I found the shell to be a little too thick, although it was more well baked compared to the salted caramel tart. Again I did find thereto be an unpleasant freezer-burned flavour.

Earl Grey Mini Cake ($6):


3/5
The layers of cakes were quite tender and had a fluffy texture. I really enjoyed the layers of chocolate and the earl grey flavour. Unfortunately, I found the top layer of icing to be just terrible: it was thick, waxy and flavourless. I just ended up scraping it off and eating the rest of the cake underneath.

I had high hopes for La Gateau, and I have to admit, I do feel pretty let down by my visit. The treats, while not terrible, did leave much to be desired. The prices were also on the higher side, and in my opinion, not worth it for the quality. Not a place that I’d recommend.

Bakery Sate

I had a bit of an odd experience with the croissants at Bakery Sate. They are a popular bakery/cafe located on Commercial, a couple of blocks away from Broadway, serving up a pretty good variety of croissants, cakes, cream puffs, and other pastries. They hae several different and unique flavours for croissants; I had their Double Baked Coffee and Matcha (and also an Almond for my mom). I also got a Mont Blanc and Mango Puff, and their Raspberry Lavendar Milk Chocolate and Salted Caramel Milk Chocolate cakes. Now, the funny thing about their croissant was that when I bit into the one with green, matcha paste on top, it tasted strangely like coffee. And when I bit into the one with the dark coffee paste on top, it turned out to be filled with green, matcha paste. I haven’t contacted the bakery to ask, but I’m 99% sure that they had made a mistake and got the two croissants mixed up XD.

“Double Baked Coffee Croissant” ($4.50):


4/5
This was filled with coffee-flavoured frangipane, and topped with matcha paste and flaked almonds. The croissant itself was crispy and flaky, with a nice buttery and slightly salty. The fillling inside was rich and mildly sweet, and had a really nice coffee flavour. I also quite enjoyed the matcha paste on top, which seemed to have some white chocolate flavour.

“Double Baked Matcha Croissant” ($4.50):


4/5
This was filled with matcha-flavoured frangipane and was topped with coffee paste on top. Again, the croissant was crispy and flaky, with a nice buttery and slightly salty. Unfortunately, as is the case with most matcha-flavoured desserts, I found the matcha flavour to be quite subtle, although the frangipane was still quite tasty.

Mont Blanc Puff ($1.95):


3.5/5
This was filled with cream and chestnut paste. The pastry here I found to be a tad overbaked, and had a slightly bitter flavour, although it did have a nice crispness. I also really enjoyed the chestnut, which was lightly sweet and had a great fragrance.

Mango Puff ($1.95):


3.5/5
I actually asked for the lychee coconut puff, but they appear to have mistakenly given me the mango (oh well, no biggie). The puff was less darkly baked than the mont blanc. The mango custard inside had a great fragrance and sweetness.

Raspberry Lavender Milk Chocolate Cake ($4.95):


3.5/5
This consisted of chocolate sponge cake sandwiching raspberry and lavender mousse, and is glazed in dark chocolate. The cake was quite tender, although I did find it to have a slightly grainy texture. The mousses were light and creamy, with the raspberry providing a great tanginess and the lavender being quite fragrance. The chocolate glaze was also good quality and not waxy.

Salted Caramel Milk Chocolate Cake ($4.95):


4/5
This consisted of chocolate sponge cake sandwiching milk chocolate and caramel mousse, and is glazed in dark chocolate. Again, I wasn’t crazy about the texture of the cake. The mousses were delicious however; I particularly loved the caramel, which had a great fragrance and slight bit of saltiness that went great with the sweetness of the dessert.

In spite of the mix up in the flavours of the croissants, I still quite enjoyed them as well as the other treats from Bakery Sate. The prices are also very reasonable. Definitely recommend checking this place out.

Footo Croissant

Footo = Fresh out of the oven. That was what I learned after visiting Footo Croissant. They are a bakery/cafe located in Yaletown, just a short distance from the Public Library. Of course, their menu consists of croissants, which they offer in a good variety of flavours; they do also have sandwiches and breakfast items as well. I had a Turkey Pesto Croissant sandwich, Maple Bacon Croissant, and Pistachio White Chocolate Croissant.

Turkey Pesto Croissant ($7.80):


4/5
This comes with your choice of either regular, whole wheat, or cheese croissant; I went with the cheese. The croissant itself was quite crisp and flakey, although I couldn’t detect much of the cheese. There was a good amount of filling inside; the turkey was a tad dry but well-seasoned, and the pesto was flavourful.

Maple Bacon Croissant ($3.65):


3.5/5
This was filled with maple cream and topped with bacon. Again, the croissant was quite flaky and buttery. I did there to be a bit of a lack in filling, and I couldn’t detect much maple flavour. The bacon was quite crisp and tasty, however.

Pistachio White Chocolate Croissant ($3.65):


3.5/5
This was filled with pistachio and white paste. The pistachio paste was rich with a great nutty fragrance, as well as sweetness from the chocolate. Unfortunately, a lot of it appears to have leaked out of the croissant however, and were on the exterior ends, while the interior was pretty much empty.

The croissants at Footo aren’t the greatest that I’ve had (I do wish that they could provide some double-baked varieties), but they are still quite enjoyable. The prices are fairly reasonable. I do think that this shop is worth visiting.

Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe

Beaucoup Bakery is a small bakery/cafe located near Granville Island that’s well known for serving up fantastic croissants and various other French pastries. I had visited the spot once about a year ago. Unfortunately, I probably went there at a bad time for they didn’t have much available when I arrived; I ended up just getting one of their almond croissants (which was fantastic) and a kouign-amann. I decided to revisit the spot again recently, this time going earlier in the morning. My timing appears to have paid off as there were considerably more treats available. I got a Bostock, Macadamia Grapefruit Paris Brest, and Peanut Butter Cookie, as well as a Coconut Lime Pie Double Baked Croissant for my mom.

Bostock ($4.25):


4/5
This was a piece of croissant-like toast topped with almonds. The “toast” was quite buttery and crispy around the edges, and had a nice bit of sweetness to it. The almonds on top provided a great bit of fragrance and crunch.

Macadamia Grapefruit Paris Brest ($6.50):


4/5
This consisted of a choux pastry that’s filled with cream, grapefruit jam, and macadamia nuts. I really enjoyed all of the components: the choux pastry was tender, the cream was light, the macadamia fresh and crunchy and the grapefruit provided a refreshing, citrus flavour. However, I’m not sure if the citrus paired that well with the nuts.

Peanut Butter Cookie ($3.25):


4/5
This consisted of two peanut butter cookies sandwiching a filling of peanut butter. The cookies have a crisp texture, yet melted in my mouth. The icing also melted in my mouth, and had a nice salty flavour. I actually found this to be, on the whole, a tad too salty for my liking, but still delicious, with a wonderful fragrance of peanut. Just a small aside: while this is the first time that I’ve ordered this treat at Beaucoup, I do remember from my previous visit that the cookies were quite small. On this visit however, the cookies were much larger, probably 2x the size of what I remember.

Coconut Lime Pie Double Baked Croissant ($5.50):


N/A
My mom had this and really enjoyed it; I’ve had their almond croissant during a previous visit, and I can say that they are absolutely fantastic.

My previous visit to Beaucoup has left me a bit disappointed; I’m happy to say though that this visit has been much better. All of the pastries that I’ve had at the shop have been tasty and well-made. The prices are a bit on the higher side, but I think they are definitely worth it for the quality. This is one spot that I’d definitely recommend visiting; just make sure that you don’t go there too late.

Soirette

After my visit to Soirette I’m left quite puzzled. You see, I’ve never visited the shop before, but I’ve seen pictures posted online of people appearing to enjoy afternoon tea there (the kind that involves cakes and small pastries/sandwiches). This indicated to me that the place should be like a cafe with seating. However, when I visited, I saw that was not the case: the shop was tiny with just a front counter while the back appears to be just a kitchen where people dressed in chef outfits were busy at work making macarons. So what’s up with all the photographs of people having tea? The only thing I could think of is that maybe they’ve gone through some changes and have now stopped serving tea.

Fortunately, I wasn’t interested in tea; I just wanted some pastries. The shop is best known for their macarons, but they do also serve up cakes, various teas, and other small treats such as chocolates. I purchased a box of 6 Macarons and two of their mini cakes (unfortunately I can’t remember what flavours they were).

6 Macarons ($15):


3.5/5
I had the Vancouver Fog, Praline, Pistachio, Matcha, Almond Butter Cookie, and French Rose. The outer layer of the macarons weren’t as crispy as the ones from Bon Macarons, but they did have a nice, chewy interior that I quite liked. The flavours for most of them were fairly good (Vancouver Fog, Praline, Almond Butter Cookie) were fairly strong; a few others (Pistachio) were a bit too subtle and weak for me to detect. My favourites were the Praline and Matcha.

“Pink” Mini Cake ($7.50):


3/5
I can’t remember the flavour of the cake; I think it was raspberry. The cake itself was quite tender and moist, with a slightly tangy flavour. I wasn’t a big fan off the frosting however, which was a bit bland and also greasy. And while the pearl decorations on top were certainly pretty, they were also very crunchy and a bit unpleasant to bite upon.

“Green” Mini Cake ($7.50):


3.5/5
Again, I don’t remmber the flavour of the cake, but it definitely had a floral fragrance to it. It was a bit harder and drier than the pink cake, but was still tender. Although I still found the frosting to be greasy and a bit bland, the pearls decorating this cake ware much smaller and less unpleasant to bite upon.

The macarons at Soirette were quite tasty, although I don’t think that their flavours were as intense as the ones from Bon Macaron. The cakes were also enjoyable, but not great. I do find their prices to be a tad on the higher side, though not too bad. All in all, this isn’t a place that I think you absolutely must visit, but it is still worth stopping by if you’re a fan of macarons.

Mei Yee Bakery

Mei Yee, is a Chinese/Asian bakery located on the corner of Victoria and 41st. They produce a pretty impressive assortment of cakes, buns, cookies, steamed buns, and other goodies. I’ve visited the place once, a number of years ago, to buy a cake for my dad’s birthday. I decided to revisit the place recently. Unfortunately, when I tried taking pictures of their food, a staff member saw me and asked me to stop. Well, that’s fine (I understand that people may want some privacy), but since I don’t have photos, I can’t remember the exact names of some of the stuff I bought or their prices, so I’ll just put them in quotation marks. I had a Bola-Bola Steamed Bun, “Sticky Rice with Pork”, “Taro Bun with Crispy Topping”, “BBQ Pork Bun with Crispy Topping”, “Custard Bun with Crispy Topping” and “Pork Floss Onion Roll”.

Bola-Bola Steamed Bun ($2):


3.5/5
This contained egg, pork, sausages, chestnuts, mushrooms among other fillings. The bun was nice and fluffy. There was a pretty good amount of filling, which albeit a tad on the blander side, was still tasty and savoury, with a lot of different textures. This was very large, almost twice the size of other buns.

“Sticky Rice with Pork” (around $1.20):


3.5/5
This consisted of glutinous rice that’s stuffed with ground pork. The outer parts had a slightly nice bit of crispiness while the rice had a bit of sweetness. The filling was quite savoury and had a bit of a seafood-like flavour to it.

Taro Bun with Crispy Topping (around $1.20):


3.5/5
This was a pineapple ball that’s filled with taro paste. The bun was quite sluffy and soft; I really enjoyed the topping, which provided great sweetness and texture. The taro was creamy and mildly sweet; I do wish there could be a bit more filling, however.

BBQ Pork Bun with Crispy Topping (around $1.20):


3.5/5
This was the same as the taro bun, except with BBQ pork. The pork had a pretty unusual bright red colour, but was still tender, and had a nice sweetness. It was not as overstuffed as the one from New Town, but the amount of filling was still generous.

Custard Bun with Crispy Topping (around $1.20):


3.5/5
This was the same as the taro bun, but with custard filling. I quite enjoyed the custard, which was creamy and mildly sweet. Again, the filling was not well distributed throughout the bun, but there was a fairly good amount in the centre.

“Pork Floss Onion Roll” (around $1.20):


3/5
This was essentially a small swiss roll cake that’s topped with green onions and pork floss. The cake itself was quite soft and moist. Unfortunately, I did find the combination of the onion and cake to be a bit too weird/off-putting.

I really enjoyed my visit to Mei Yee. The food, while not as good as some other places like New Town, were still solid and the prices are a great bargain. I’d definitely recommend checking this place out.

New Town Bakery & Restaurant

New Town Bakery & Restaurant seriously has an adorable store front. Unfortunately, the day that I visited it was raining somewhat heavily, so I wasn’t able to take a picture, but for those of you who don’t know, they’ve got a cartoon of a basket of steamed buns. In addition to steamed buns, they serve a good variety of Chinese baked goods, along with various Asian dim sum and other dishes from their restaurant section. I haven’t tried their restaurant however, I just stuck to their steamed buns and baked goods. I had their Pork Turnover, Baked BBQ Pork Bun, and Pork, Spicy Pork, Chicken Deluxe, and Chinese Sausage Steamed Buns.

Pork Turnover ($1.75):


4/5
This was glutinous rice that was filed with ground pork and has been deep fried. The exterior was nice and crispy. The glutinous rice had a soft, chewy texture and was slightly sweet while the ground pork had a nice savoury flavour. I do wish that there was a bit more of the filling however.

Baked BBQ Pork Bun ($2.25):


4/5
The bun was soft and fluffy; the meat was tender and juicy, and had a mildly sweet flavour. This was a very good amount of filling: I got meat in almost every bite. This may be a bit more expensive than other places, but it’s worth it for the quality.

Pork Steamed Bun ($2.50):


4/5
The bun itself had a great fluffy and chewy texture. The pork filling was very tender and juicy. I could have done with a tad more filling inside, but it was still sufficient.

Spicy Pork Steamed Bun ($2.75):


4/5
This was filled with what is essentially BBQ pork. The pork was very tender and juicy, and has a wonderful sweet flavour. There was also a pretty generous amount of filling.

Chinese Sausage Roll ($2.25):


4/5
This was basically an elongated steamed bun that’s filled with a Chinese sausage. The bun again was very fluffy, soft, and chewy; the sausage was what you’d get at Asian supermarkets, and is very tender, juicy, and flavourful. I would have liked there to be a slightly higher meat to bun ratio.

Chicken Deluxe Steamed Bun ($3.30):


4/5
Again, the bun was light, fluffy and slightly chewy. This was completely filled with all sorts of meats, including chicken, pork, and salted egg yolk. All of the meats were tender and juicy and flavourful; I particularly enjoyed the egg yolk, which had a great saltiness and oily flavour.

Although I haven’t tried any of the food from the restaurant part of this shop, I really enjoyed all of the steamed buns and baked goods that I’ve tried. Their prices are a bit higher than typical Asian places, but considering the quality of their food, I think it’s more than worth the cost. This is definitely worth checking out.

Banh Mi Saigon

Have you ever had an incident where you’re eating something in public, and there’s someone there staring at you hungrily and you feel really awkward and a little guilty about it? It happened to me recently after my visit to Banh Mi Saigon. However, instead of a human, this time it was a crow.

dav
Well, this is a little awkward…

I encountered this guy during my trip to Banh Mi Saigon. The latter is a small Vietnamese joint located on Victoria, a couple of blocks from 41st Avenue. Their menu consists of mostly Banh Mi sandwiches and various drinks; they do have an oven inside and probably make their own bread and everything else from scratch. Their sandwiches all contain vegetables and mayo, with different meats depending on the variety that you chose, and currently range from $5-$5.50. I had their Heo Uop Xa (Lemongrass Pork), Ga (Chicken), and Dac Biet (Special) Banh Mi.

Carrying my baguettes, I headed over to a nearby bus stop and waited for the 20 to come an take me back home. This is where I encountered the crow showed up and began staring at me, or more accurately, the baguettes that were sticking out of the bag that I was holding. I guess I can’t really blame it too much since the sandwiches do look awfully tasty. Finally, I caved in and put a small piece of one baguette onto the ground for the bird before making my way home with the rest.

Heo Uop Xa, Lemongrass Pork Banh Mi ($5.50):


3.5/5
This contained lemongrass pork, mayo, and vegetable. The bread was quite crusty on the outside. It was a tad bit soggy on the interior due to the filling. The meat was well-seasoned and flavourful, albeit a tad on the dry side. I really enjoyed the mayo, which provided a great creaminess. I didn’t think the sandwich was as overstuffed as some reviewers say, but they were still quite generous with the meat.

Ga, Chicken Banh Mi ($5.50):


4/5
This contained chicken, mayo, soy sauce, and vegetable. Flavourwise, this was quite similar to the lemongrass pork, except with chicken instead. The meat here was more tender and juicy. Although the portion seemed a bit more stingy than that from the pork. Again, I really enjoyed the mayo, which was creamy and flavourful.

Dac Biet, Special Banh Mi ($5.50):


4/5
This contained ham, headcheese, meat ball, meat loaf, pate, mayo, soy sauce, and vegetable. This sandwich was certainly not short on meat. All off the coldcuts were tender and quite flavourful (quite honestly, I’ve got no idea of what I was eating, but it was all tasty). I do wish that there was a bit more mayo in this sandwich however: the flavour wasn’t as prevalent as it was in the two previous sandwiches.

I’m really glad to have checked out Banh Mi Saigon. The sandwiches didn’t blow me away, but were still very tasty, with a good amount of filling. They are also quite generous in size for the price. This is definitely a place that I’d recommend for a tasty and very affordable meal.
