Bake Code just opened its first Canadian store in our neighbourhood in Toronto. The Taiwanese bakery is right at home in North York, bringing a nice fusion of Asian and European baking styles.
My first visit was pleasant enough, I was just looking to pick up some Mentaiko bread and pork floss bun. Bake Code is a self-serve joint, so, after picking up a tray and a pair of tongs, I got started.
There wasn’t too much in the centre display at the time of my visit. I was thinking that perhaps they were still baking. Unfortunately, there was no Mentaiko bread so I ended up picking up some Pork Floss and Mango Tango buns, as well as some Tiramisu.
The Pork Floss Bun had a subtle sweetness to it, with a hint of onion. What I really liked was the soft Mango Tango bun which had very interesting flavours of wine and mango essence, with bits of mango and raisin. Their Tiramisu was soaked in Espresso, not my most favourite thing, although it might appeal to others.
Bake Code I visited
With everything made fresh in their store, a visit to Bake Code is worth the trip to North York.
