The latest ice-cream creation in the city pairs the frozen treat with buns and other confections—a combo that we approve of.
Malaysian coffee bun chain PappaRoti will soon serve up ice-cream buns ($7 each), which will feature ice cream sandwiched between its signature coffee buns.
Cut to Malaysia , 12 years ago, a mother with a passion of baking stands in her kitchen, her hands and attention focused on challenging the shape and texture of the roti dough. She loved coming up with new recipes and this favorite flatbread was a great place to start. Her goal was to create a brand new version of it – a roti bun. In 2002, she delivers a round, bun like roti to her son, watching tentatively as he bites into its warm, moist center. Little did she know, in one mouthful, her delicate, coffee caramel coated crunchy on the outside pastry with its rich buttery filling would have him hooked, changing the trajectory of all their lives forever!
PappaRoti – Father of all Buns – is born.
