Montreal’s Chinatown Pâtisserie Harmonie

Located in the heart of Chinatown, Pâtisserie Harmonie is a well-trafficked bakery for Asian pastry lovers from all over the city. The small shop carries over fifty products ranging from cakes, pastries, savory and sweet buns and bubble teas. You will want to equip yourself with a tray and plastic tongs from the center island upon entering the bakery so that you can make your selections from the numerous bins of baked goods. The Chinese hot dogs, a small hot dog wrapped in a warm, sweat bread bun are nothing short of addictive. Some of the other savory bun choices include the shredded pork bun, ham and onion bun, curry beef and pork and corn, which is wrapped in a bun shaped in the likeness of a pig’s head. Pair a savory bun with one of the many pastries. The wide selection is sure to have something to suit everyone’s taste, but green tea cakes and red bean pastries prove to be reoccurring favorites.
