These Premium Pastries From Hong Kong Are Now Available in the Philippines
The best part of traveling is the experience itself. But if you’re not the one boarding a plane, getting pasalubong from your friends or family heading out of town is the next best thing.
For those in the know, a trip to Hong Kong is only ever complete with hand-carried treats from Kee Wah Bakery. Started as a family business on Shanghai Street in Yau Ma Tei, the bakery’s premium pastries have been putting smiles on people’s faces for over 80 years.
