Dragon Pastry has become a sensation on the internet, specifically FoodTok, thanks to their meticulously crafted pastries. You might recognise them by their delightful bunches of grapes, miniature pineapples and cherry blossoms which are entirely made of pastry, fresh in-store. Watch the magic unravel at Dragon Pastry’s newest store in Chase Market.
Baking tray after tray of too-pretty-to-eat treats, Dragon Pastry’s offerings are wide and varied. Pork floss buns sit alongside green bean pastries, though the sweet treats are where Dragon Pastry really shines. Dainty in size (so you can taste a few), there are pastries filled with plum, salted egg and taro, shortbread cookies flavoured with black sesame, and mochi — one of their best sellers.
When it comes to producing treats as delicate as these, oftentimes the magic happens behind closed doors. But at Dragon Pastry’s new Chatswood Chase outpost, you can watch each treat come together thanks to a window that looks straight into the kitchen. Watch as the pastry chefs carefully cut rounds of cake from a slab, or paint petals onto a pastry so carefully it’s basically a piece of art. With the amount of effort that goes into every treat, you almost won’t want to eat them!
As Chinese Lunar New Year fast approaches, Dragon Pastry is also your go-to for the most spectacular mooncakes. Not your average mooncakes, those coming out of Dragon Pastry’s kitchen are ornately decorated with impressive piping and painstaking paintwork. There’s no better way to make a major statement on a festive table.
Head into Dragon Pastry to try their treats for yourself, exclusively at Chase Market.
