If you’re already an aficionado of authentic Chinese cuisine, chances are you already know about Maxima Bakery. Hidden inside the Lambda Asian Grocery in Crescent Heights Village, Maxima is a sort of out-of-the-way space that you’d never know was there… unless you were already in the know. Fortunately, you’re a Savour Calgary reader and now you’re on to this hidden gem too. While Maxima has a broad variety of Chinese sweet treats like roll-up cakes and tarts, you’ll find us at the bun oven drooling over their savoury buns.
We’re talking about the barbecue pork buns, of course, for which Maxima is well known. But you will also find curry beef and chicken rolls and our new favourite, the barbecue pork crisp, which is a marriage of delicious, sweet barbecued pork (just like the buns) but enveloped in a crispy, flakey pastry like a turnover. Let the staff help you get your treat out of the oven – they look self-serve, but they’re not.
