Best Coconut Buns in TO?

I've tried a couple bakeries in Chinatown, but does anyone know where to find the definitive coconut buns?

  1. Lots of great places...I usually pick up a batch at Furama Bakery (In the concourse of First Canadian Place ) on my way to work...most are gone by the time I get to the office.

    1. Hi, Cimmerian:

      Like yourself, I have been trying to find the definitive coconut buns for quite awhile, but I haven't had much luck. IMHO, the coconut buns from Kim Moon on Dundas, Aromaz at Brimley/Huntingwood, Furama, and other assorted bakeries around town have been okay but not great.

      The very best ones I've ever had were from Po Ma, a small bakery which used to be on Broadview just below Gerrard. They were always fresh, and huge, like about 8 inches long, with maybe twice as much filling as any others I've tried. Like I said, I haven't found any coconut buns as good as Po Ma's since they closed, but I would love to know if the former owners have reopened anywhere else.
