A walk towards one end of Dixon Street in Chinatown will usually result to the wonderful aroma of sweet custard drifting in the air.  Have a look at the side of the street and you’ll probably see people queue up at a small window.  The sign “Emperor’s Cream Puff” looks discreet that the only indication that it exist would be the many people waiting to get a hold of these cute and delicious custard-filled puffs.

For 30cents each or AUD$1.00 for four pieces, it is a good deal.

Production of the cream puffs are non-stop.  As long as there are people lining up and ordering, their machine continuously creates one after another.  The cream puffs are given to the customers fresh and hot.

The bite-sized, fluffy cream puffs are filled with smooth egg custard.  I find this quite addicting because it’s soft and so easy to eat.

If you’re in Chinatown, this is one of the food shops worth lining up for.
