Kao tells What Now San Diego Sunmerry Bakery’s pastries tend to be traditional, and you can find both sweet and savory bites on the menu. “We have taro, we have black sesame, we have green tea matcha, as well as some of the items you see at your dim sum houses,” says Kao. The Taro Milk Cake is a very popular menu item, as is the BBQ Pork Chashu Bolo, which is made in-house. In addition to the over 80 varieties of breads and cakes, Sunmerry Bakery has a drink line. Currently, the bakery carries Happy Lemon boba tea, which is already a San Diego-fav.
