Popular Bakery - A Taste of Portuguese Culture

Sunday, March 21, 2010

Couple days ago, we were craving for Portuguese flame grilled chicken. There is one particular restaurant here in Edmonton that serve this kind of grilled chicken. So that morning we went there empty stomached-did not have any breakfast, only the kids had their milk and some cheerios. We got there at around 11am, unfortunately the kitchen starts to serve at 12 o'clock. O well..we did not want to wait for an hour, since we were hungry enough. Thus I just check out the bakery, yes it is a combo-resto and bakery. All they have there look so tempting and yummy. Chris and the kids were back to our car, and there I was all by myself choosing the ones I wanted. So here is what I got, I mean the ones I managed to bring home and took the picture (not included the ones we ate in our car).

Let's start from the far left (going clock-wise)..I do not know what it is called. But my husband loves it, he finished two at time. It's just like sugar sprinkled-fried sweet dough. Next is sweet pastry..Jordan and I love it...it's similar to Genji pie. Next with the paper cup is coux pastry with strawberry jam and cream filling. I may have to skip buying this next time. The skin was too dry for me. Bianca just licked the strawberry jam and then put it upside down on the table...I don't think she likes it either. Next is empanada with cumin spiced-cubes chicken filling. It is similar to kue panada in Manado-Celebes island. Smart to think that Celebes island once was colonized by Portuguese. Thus the food is interfered by Portuguese.
Alright, next is the famous egg tart. I love it love it love it!!! Happy that I bought some of them. The taste was so creamy and I just can go ehmm...oh yes, and Jordan loves it too..
The last one was Bianca's favorites, apple pie. The apple gives some fragrant to it.
To conclude, I would recommend you to try this bakery/eatery if you happen to visit Edmonton. As for us, we will definitely go back there for the chicken and some more pastries!
