Formosa Bakery has started selling its Taiwanese-style desserts and breads at Café Vie (10330 Metcalf, Overland Park). The casual restaurant, on the back side of the gray strip mall at 103rd Street and Metcalf, is known for its Korean, Vietnamese and Asian-inspired food.
Inside Café Vie's cool, casual space, one walk-up counter offers rice and noodle bowls (including pho), sandwiches, wraps and rolls. The other counter is for coffee, bubble tea, shaved ice and other desserts, including the additions from Formosa. Individual slices of tiramisu, Black Forest cake and cheesecake sit next to the cutesy-sounding Snow White, Puppy Love and Yellow Volcano.
What makes the desserts particularly Taiwanese? Raymond Kung, the bakery's sales and marketing guy, says chef and owner Hamlet Chang uses no preservatives and less sugar. (That, plus he trained in Taiwan.)
