Meanwhile, at the baking department, the chef monitors the oven closely and ensures the doughs are baked thoroughly under balanced heat. The same method is used for the products like buns, chicken pies and other pastries too.
Strict quality control The quality control team is utterly strict. This team, which consists of experienced pastry chefs, operation department experts and other representatives, visits the branches for weekly audit to ensure the best quality provided at each branch. Aspects audited include food taste, colour, shape and display, as well as cleanliness and service quality.
