8. Go Cakes
Go cakes revamps the traditional Chinese Cakes and offers a small collection of these sweet treats. They are Xu’s (the owner) interpretation of the traditional snacks/ sweets and makes it in the style of Japanese wagashi.
Even though she offers a limited collection of sweet treats, they have become instantly popular. One of them is a clear pastry that looks eerily similar to a crystal that has something purple in it. But it is actually an organic purple sweet potato! (Looks so beautiful!)
See the yellow one that looks like a flower? That’s Xu’s interpretation of a traditional pastry called ‘Chiu Chow’. Usually, that pastry is made with pickles and preserved veggies, but this one is made differently. Xu says, “But mine has lotus seed paste in it, that is typically used in mooncakes. It’s a bit more expensive because it’s handcrafted, but it’s worth it.”
And all of these cakes are hand made. The surprising part? Xu takes the help of a dim sum master and that’s why they are made in limited quantities. These cakes are all preservatives free and are meant to be eaten fresh just like the traditional pastries.
