We bought these Chinese pastries from a road side stand while on the way to lunch.
The pastries came in different flavours, like milk, peanut, osmanthus, etc. I cannot recall now what are the rest of the flavours but I remembered we bought one each. All the above plus one that we ate at a restaurant was RMB15 (CAD2.50).
The pastry was flaky. Here are more close up view of the rest of the pastries.
The above looks like a tulip.
This view from above looks like star anise.
Twists and ribbon.
