Rainbow bakery is a chain of Chinese bakeries. The specific location that I visited is a place of some notoriety. Within a couple of days of opening, an incidence of road rage caused a care to crash through the entrance into the bakery, destroying the business. Below is a news report on the incident.
It’s been a few months since then and Rainbow Bakery has renovated (again) and reopened. I felt the need to give some patronage given their past misfortune.
The first thing I noticed upon browsing is that the prices here are very competitive. This location is in downtown Flushing and there are a lot of Chinese bakeries here competing against each other. The prices of common items that each bakery produces is equal or even lesser than what I’ve seen in other local Chinese bakeries.
The quality is also equal or better. I had a cheese tart and a pork floss roll. Both were very good. Specifically, the cheese tart was like eating a very dense, cheesecake flavored foam. The pork floss roll was done slightly differently than other bakeries, but was about as good as you’d find elsewhere.
Overall, this place is great. It’s equal or slightly better than the other bakeries in the area. Additionally, they also had a menu in the back of cook to order dishes, dim sum, and some made to order desserts as well. I didn’t try any of those, but they looked good.
