Meet the owner

Suki Lee was just four years old when her father opened a Korean bakery in 1992, introducing Torontonians to baked goods from his home country. But that didn’t stop her from helping out with operations. “I was actually folding our boxes for a penny a piece,” Suki remembers with a laugh. “I was earning my allowance!”

Suki’s responsibilities have increased significantly since then as she’s now the general manager of Hodo Kwaja, running sales at the front-of-house. As the only Korean bakery in downtown Toronto, the shop remains busy with a constant flow of customers picking up fresh baked goods. The menu is small but mighty, featuring crisp and chewy Korean pancakes, madeleine sponge cakes and the bakery’s iconic product – bite-sized walnut-shaped cakes filled with a mix of walnut and red bean, walnut and mashed potato, or walnut and almonds. They’re incredibly addictive and affordably priced, and have established Hodo Kwaja as a Koreatown institution.

    Best Korean desserts in Toronto

    This is by far the best Korea dessert in Toronto. The walnut cakes are absolutely mouthwatering and it is incredibly addicting. You won't be able to stop because it's that good. There are different flavors such as mashed potato, almonds and red bean. You can buy a few on the go for around 2.50$ or you can buy a box for 10$ (30 walnut cakes). It's always hot and fresh so grab a few while visiting Koreatown. Definitely worth a visit and make sure to grab Red bean flavor
