a very happy pastry

For me, bakeries are fun places to explore. You just never know what you might come across. One of my favourite bakeries, Tous Les Jour (despite its name, is actually from Korea), used to carry a Totoro bun. They don’t seem to carry this any more, to my eternal sadness.

The other day I was exploring a complex called Jianwai Soho (建外SOHO), and they had a branch of Bakery House (鮮包坊) in their western section. I took a peek inside to see if they had anything on the cute scale of the Totoro bun, and as the fuwuyuan asked if there was anything that I liked, I saw him.

coffee boy, a very happy pastry

This is Coffee Boy, a bun that was all coffee and cream goodness. He costed 5 RMB.

He was very happy. I was even happier to eat him.
