The Boss Bakery is delicious. The prices are very reasonable and the location is just at the edge of Chinatown. Their apple turnover is fantastic and highly recommended!

Needed a last minute birthday cake and The Boss was very accommodating. Bought a 8" fresh fruit cake. It was decorated beautifully and they added Happy Birthday for me. It was plenty big enough for 10 people. You will find their cakes light and delicious.

Everything that you can find in a typical Chinese cafe from your standard toast and Marconi breakfast to fried noodle and spring roll. Also for afternoon, you can have egg tarts or coconut buns. Prices are decently economical.

With the recent exodus of massive new building
projects hitting the neighbourhood, Chinatown; which
has always been one of the city's most vibrant areas;
is even more buzzing and buoyant than ever before.

cuisine, from fusion food to traditional home-cooking,
Chinatown has remained faithful to its roots as a
space which clambers with shop signs and welcomes
