I just happened to try this pastry when i was in SLC of all places.
It goes by kouign-aman, or kouign amann, or kouing-aman, or kouing-amann. It is something like a croissant but with a thicker buttery dough that is crusted with carmelized sugar. It is originally a Brittany pastry.
bumping this thread up. any progress on finding kouign amann in the gta, and if so, where? i miss this cake soooo much after trying it in france!
Maybe no luck in Toronto but if you ever come to Montreal we have Patisserie Kouign Amann on Mount Royal St East.They have excellent Bretagne Pastry as well as the best buttery Croissants in Mtl
Beast did make a nice version, you should bug'em to see if they'll bring it back. Frank AGO had it too. But the namesake version on Mont-Royal when it comes out hot? Oh me oh my.

You can actually find kouign-amann at....Scaramouche.
