Where to buy hot dog buns
Does anyone know where I can buy hot dog buns like they serve from a cart? The yellow-coloured, soft and fluffy kind? It would be great as a hamburger bun too. Supermarket buns I find are too thick and bready and I'm looking for something more spongy.
you could go to European Quality Meats at.
16 Jutland Road, Etobicoke
they sell a 12 pack for about $3
You could also try Wholesale Club (open to the public no membership needed) at.
605 Rogers Rd, Toronto
they sell the buns for about $3 as well per bag.
There is Champs which is right by the TIFF Bell Lightbox (on Widmer):
There is another place on Richmond:
Never been to either and I am sure there are more than just those two but probably a good place to start!
Are you prepared to shlep up to the northwest part of town? If so, I get my hot dog and hamburger buns at Bagel Plus, a smallish, locally popular bakery and cafe in a plaza on the northwest corner of Sheppard Ave. and Bathurst St. Their buns are a most satisfying delivery system for dogs and burgers. About this bready vs. spongy business (which I've never considered before), I guess these buns come down on the side of spongy, as you requested. Always fresh, though you might want to call ahead to make sure they have them that day.
