Famous for their coffee-coated buns, Malaysian chain PappaRoti is finally opening in Toronto!
While a location at Bramalea City Center opened for a short stint last year, a new outlet on Spadina in Toronto’s Chinatown is the first bakery in Toronto proper. It’s going adjacent to an incoming location of fellow international chain Gou Bu Li which deals in dumplings!
PappaRoti is known for its freshly-baked South East Asian roti buns, AKA “the father of all buns” made from a family recipe.
These buns are warm and moist with salted butter on the inside and coated with a coffee/caramel-flavoured crunchy goodness on the outside. Patrons can also choose to add fruit, whipped cream, ice cream, and chocolate sauce to take their buns to the next level or select from savoury sandwiched options.
The chain had humble beginnings opening a single store in Malaysia in 2003. Today, PappaRoti has over 400 stores and kiosks worldwide including Canadian outposts in Vancouver and Montreal.
Address: 270 Spadina Avenue, Toronto
