An 85 C Bakery opened near my house, so I decided to check it out. For those of unfamiliar with this place, it’s a Taiwanese bakery with locations all over Beijing and Shanghai. The products and layout looked basically the same as in China, but much busier.(I waited in a 5 minute line at 7 p.m., the place was happening.)
Not used to seeing this sign in the US
Ajisen Ramen(A Japanese noodle place all over Shanghai(including the Expo and the Airport) that I occasionally frequented for lunch. I only expected to see this 85 C in shopping center, so I guess I got lucky.
Tous Les Jours- A Korean French Bakery Chain that I used to go to when I lived in Beijing.
I went to see 85 C and I ended up passing a few other familiar chains from my time in China. I wanted to see what all the hype about this 85 C and everything seemed pretty similar, except this is the sole location in the US, while there are 63 in Shanghai alone.
There’s also a Din Tai Fung in Arcadia
I plan to go in time, but this was pretty convenient since it was only 10 minutes away..
