we have been hearing about this craze around roti buns. trust us. we didnt get it. since (i) we heard that papparich had the best roti buns in los angeles, (ii) our friends have cravings sometimes, AND (iii) since jonathan gold thought it was pretty heavenly himself, we tried it! our verdict: loved it!
i now understand why it was hard for people to describe what a roti bun was. when people tried to explain it to me…my reaction was… so its just bread. i’ll do my best but this is just something you have to have yourself. so its a bun… baked fresh with a buttery center and a mocha/maple crust surrounding it (the “original”). simple concept, huh? note that we tried the vanilla one…and liked the “original” the best. nice combo of salty and sweet (probably more salty because of the butter). it’s pretty freaking amazing…(says the girl who loves butter).
we also tried a milk tea. definitely get something to drink. you’ll be thirsty. the milk tea goes nicely with the bun. you just need to try it for yourself!
if you find other roti bun places, please let me know! i’m officially on the hunt!
