Papparoti now featured in blogTO

PappaRoti specializes in sweet Malaysian caramel coffee buns, rather than (as I first suspected) the savoury Caribbean- and Indian-style roti curry wraps that Toronto knows and loves so well.

Unlike the flagship location in Vancouver, this Toronto Papparoti is relatively small and unassuming. Once inside there’s a surprisingly amount of space, USB outlets and even a larger meeting-style table at the back.

Inside PappaRoti, home of Malaysian coffee buns

PappaRoti (270 Spadina, at Dundas, papparoti.ca) is a Malaysian snack chain with 400 locations all over the world, from Dubai to Durban to Bangalore – and, now, Toronto.

After a few years developing a following in B.C. and hosting a pop-up in Bramalea City Centre last year, the chain has settled in Chinatown. A second Ontario location in Mississauga’s Square One is on the way.
