he warm and buttery aroma inside 101 Bakery’s storefront is enough to satiate your teatime cravings for some soft and savory pastries, but what separates this Chinese patisserie from its competitors is its tea eggs. A popular food sold by street vendors in China, these eggs are soaked inside their cracked shells in a green tea and star anise broth, flavoring them and staining them a marbled brown. Also try the maki-shaped breaded chicken sandwich, wrapped in seaweed, or something more conventional like the butter bun filled with custard eggs for a hearty snack fix. Top it off with some bubble tea or a fresh smoothie. Araki
Tea eggs are also called “marble eggs” because the process creates small cracks that form in a marble-like fashion.
