Taipan Bakery, Chinatown, NY

FS recently discovered her love for cake. She happened to find this bakery, which has her taro bun and... mousse cake, many different kinds of mousse cake, where chocolate was the unpopular one. FS had chocolate and it was light and fluffy and delicious.

On Yelp, it's Tai Pan, but as you can see from the sign, it's Taipan Bakery so FS goes with then sign.

Taipan Bakery (links to Yelp page)
194 Canal St
(between Mott St & Mulberry St)
New York, NY 10013
Neighborhood: Chinatown

Inside the bakery:

FS's purchased goodies (the trifecta of tea, chocolate mousse cake, and taro bun): 
Chocolate Mousse Cake:
The mousse cake has a thin cake wrap-around (the spotted portion). Inside, the top half is chocolate mousse and the bottom half is chocolate cake.
The taro bun:
The top part is actually flecked with small pieces of the same dough as the bun, but since the pieces are small, when baked, they become crispy. So the top part is nicely crunchy, which is common in most of Taipan's buns.
The taro inside is lightly sweet and very obviously mashed taro instead of a sugary taro paste, which might have less taro.
FS can't wait to go back to New York and sample more food.
