Something substantial

Something substantialStepping into Bakerzin is a bit like falling down the rabbit hole. Giant purple lampshades hang from the ceiling and sprout like mushrooms from the wall. The kitchen serves afternoon tea with cakes and pastries.

Indeed, Bakerzin seems fit for the Mad Hatteros tea party. Thus you might feel like you were truly in Wonderland if it werenot so noticeable that the restaurant is inside Raffleos City.

Bakerzin is completely open to the mall, which works to attract passerbys, but detracts from the atmosphere once inside. However, if you are stranded in Raffleos and in need of something substantial, the menu offers soups, salads, pizzas, sandwiches and entrees. The Steak and Mushroom Panini(RMB52) is a delicious choice with melted gruyere cheese and juicy mushrooms. The Waffle Ice Cream (RMB46) was disappointing, so instead top off the meal with their signature dessert, the Warm Chocolate Cake (RMB48), a decadent concoction filled with Valrhona chocolate and topped with orange confit. With so many other alluring treats on the menu, weore tempted to return for their afternoon tea.

Address: 5/F Raffles City, 268 Xizang Zhong Lu near Fuzhou Lu, Metro Line 1 & 2 People's Square Station
