Until the start of Chinatown Dining Week, we’ll be featuring each of the 15 businesses who are participating in this year’s event, running January 26 – February 5, 2023. All businesses are offering special deals during this period for $10 and/or $20. Check out all of the menus here.
Next up to be profiled is Shan Shan Bakery, another returning restaurant to Chinatown Dining Week. We sat with the bakery’s Shanshan Wang.

Why did you decide to open the bakery?
My husband had been operating both Chinese and Western bakeries for over 30 years, with experience in Vancouver. About 10 years ago, we decided to open our own store here in Edmonton.
How long has the bakery been open?
Egg tarts from Shan Shan Bakery
What is the style of food served at the bakery?
We make mainly Chinese bakery products and some western items.
What makes your bakery special?
With over 30 years of professional baking experience, we produce over 100 types of pastry items from our kitchen here. We also make custom cake for parties and events.
Shan Shan’s Chinatown Dining Week special
Why do you think people should dine in Chinatown?
There are lots of dining options in Chinatown and they usually have a really good price – more bang for the buck! Chinatown is also a very convenient location in the city as it’s near downtown.
Do you have any hopes for the future of Edmonton’s Chinatown?
I hope that more people would come to experience and learn about the Chinatown’s culture, business and community. I also hope that issues like homelessness and safety would be improved in the near future.
Shan Shan will be offering the following special during Chinatown Dining Week. It is valid for pick-up only:
- $20 Special: Gift certificate valued at $24
- In-person orders only, payment by cash only
