In search of mini hamburger/slider buns in Vancouver

jay_kay Jan 29, 2009 10:08 AM

Does any one know where I could pick some up - something a bit smaller in size than say a hockey puck or the lid of a disposable coffee cup? Need them for a kid friendly event, hence the smaller size requirement. :)

    I have not seen them retail. I wonder if you can source it from a regular bakery. You may want to ask Vera's or a place like that for their source.

    For an alternative - I would check the Chinese bakeries for smallish buns (though they will be a tad sweet)

      I just use those butter tray buns that save-on, sobey's, safeway all sell.

        Patisserie bordeaux at 10th adn alma used to make mini "miche" on request. they are awsome. they are 3 or 4" across. I bet many bakeries would make a small bun for you if you asked nicely and ordered enough.

          I found some small chewy buns at Costco ($4.99 for 24 I think) this week that I used to make small lamb burgers. The kids loved 'em!

              Safeway @ 12th/Cambie has dinner buns, in the bakery "bins" that are the size of hockey pucks. You could easily trim them into smaller slider sized buns...
