Dragon Land Bakery
125 Walker Street
Just on the corner of Walker and Baxter is Dragon Land Bakery (very close to the 6 / N / R Canal Street subway stop). This is an interesting Chinese bakery and they really try to be upscale about it. When you enter there is a wall of traditional Chinese pastries including buttered breads, muffins, egg custards, etc. Dragon Land Bakery also has some interesting serving girls that help you place the pastries into a wax paper bag. I’ve seen this in Beijing and Hong Kong – I don’t know if this is to prevent shoplifting, for sanitary reasons, or they are just trying to be upscale. It’s kind of annoying sometimes though because they get in the way and harass you if you are simply just browsing.
Dragon Land Bakery is also a popular hangout for young kids who want to splurge on some milk pearl boba bubble tea. They have a wide selection here . We got a Blueberry Mousse Cake / Cup
It was served in a very cool cup but unfortunately it wasn’t too good. The mousse was not very smooth and the blueberry had a very artificial taste to it.
One very interesting thing I noticed was Dragon Land Bakery’s strict policy on loose change. If you’re one of those types of people who like to unload their pennies on a vendor, you can forget about it here.
