Pinch me. Am I dreaming? Nope. I have finally found a place that makes Taiwanese pineapple cake (fènglísū 鳳梨酥) that is as good as Chia Te or SunnyHills — and it’s right here in New York City! IRIS Bakery in Flushing specializes in Taiwanese pastries and breads, and their pineapple cakes are to die for. They currently have two varieties, one is plain pineapple and the other is pineapple with cranberry. They also serve delicious panna cotta and grapefruit gelatin.
