Cream Puffs @ Emperor's Garden Chinatown

What's that long queue about?
A trip down to Chinatown in Sydney is not complete without a visit to Emperor's Garden restaurant. If it's not yum cha you fancy, you probably don't want to miss the cream puff window. This delicious hot dessert is served fresh as it is made, through a little window at the side of the bakery. The long queue at the window is testament to quality & popularity of the Emperor's cream puffs.

Chinatown in southern CBD is a small area that is very busy and has a plethora of restaurants. Ranging from cheap eats to fancy stuff, there is something for every pocket and taste bud. The Emperor's Garden restaurant is at one end of Chinatown, close to Paddy's markets. You can jump onto the free CBD shuttle 555 and get off at Chinatown close to the Emperor's Garden restaurant.

The queue for the cream puffs is constant from 12 pm till 9 pm (their opening hours). There is a constant production line of fresh cream puffs being made, and being sold at an equally fast pace.

Tourists wandering around Chinatown sometimes have quizzical looks as they spot the long winding queue from the little window. One of them even walked up to me today and enquired 'What are they selling?'. The answer 'cream puffs', seemed to raise more questions in his mind - I imagined it might be 'But such a long queue just for cream puffs?'. He saw the queue moving fast enough and decided to join it nevertheless. I'm sure he wasn't disappointed. At 35 cents for a puff and 3 for $1, there's got to be something in these puffs that draws customer constantly.

If you walk down Chinatown, treat yourself to a little cream puff for dessert. Surely a must do in Sydney's Chinatown.
