Nam Dae Moon is a bakery specializing in traditional steamed Korean rice cakes known as tteok

The chain originated in China, founded by an ethnic Korean-Chinese who utilizes his family's recipes for healthy, chewy Korean rice cakes that are low in sugar. This is the first location in Canada.

Nam Dae Moon TorontoThe Sesame Glutinous Rice Cake ($5.99) has a mild black sesame taste that I wished was a bit stronger. 

Nam Dae Moon TorontoThe Osmanthus Rice Cake ($9.90) comes with a dollop of a special mixture of two kinds of osmanthus jelly squeezed on top. It might be my  favourite of the bunch.

Nam Dae Moon TorontoThe Milky Banana Daifuku ($3.99) is a whole banana paired with condensed milk, then wrapped with a mochi coating. It makes for a nice snack that's lightly sweet without going overboard.

Nam Dae Moon TorontoThe Durian Daifuku ($8.90) is smooth cream with a perfectly chewy outer casing. There's none of the typical durian pungency that normally overwhelms durian flavoured desserts.
