Something to talk to your colleagues about during lunch. I hope I can bring one or a few home for you if there’s enough.

Ok. The last time I sent you info about Hong Kong cakes you did a wonderful job of remembering & locating it. This one is from Taiwan.

My colleague just came back from Taiwan and gave me this to try. I must say that it’s very nice so if I do get to Taiwan, I must get this. If I know anyone going there, I must recommend this.

It’s not too buttery and the pineapple tart inside is soft and had a texture that’s just right. I don’t know if you can see it in the last picture in this email as you scroll down.

I went to their website (http://www.chiate99.com) but it’s all in Chinese. Anyway here are some pictures & info I found on the internet.
