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.
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.
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!
you could go to European Quality Meats at.

You could also try Wholesale Club (open to the public no membership needed) at.
