Past Wing Hop Fung, and on the other side of Capital Dim Sum & BBQ, lies Kee Wah Bakery. The first time I stopped by in the late afternoon, I saw a bunch of Chinese customers grab trays so I dutifully followed suit.
They were loading up on freshly baked rolls, which were still warm from the oven.
Other fun snacks include this hot dog roll.
They have several kinds of egg tarts too.
While the rolls taste fine, I really go in here for this Danish butter loaf. It's a soft, pillowy, buttery loaf of bread. Sort of like a cross between a sweet roll and a croissant. Sooo worth it.
The breads range from around $1 to $3. Kee Wah Bakery also makes cakes and other pastries, but they don't look quite as nice as other bakeries to me so I've never been tempted to try any of them. But the Danish butter loaf, trust me on that one.
