If you've never tried the cream puffs at Emperor's Garden in Chinatown, today's the day to fix that sad situation. As soon as you escape the office, make a beeline for the outpost on the corner of Hay and Dixon streets, and join the queue waiting for a taste of the venue's famous Puffs. These hot little custard balls are sold straight from the oven and are well worth the wait. Plus, a single dollar buys you three of these babies so you can order as many as you want without putting a dent in your wallet. Craving even more sweet treats? Wander inside the bakery, where you'll find moon cakes, chocolate eclairs, egg tarts and a whole bunch of other delectable nibbles.
