Eat: PappaRoti

Malaysian-based chain PappaRoti is known for their coffee buns, the sweet buns with crispy crust with a soft, buttery interior, best served warm with coffee. It was apparently started by a mother in Malaysia innovating the roti dough.

I was invited for a private tasting at one of their Mississauga locations. The Confederation Parkway location is located at street level below a condominium, and minutes from Square One shopping centre.

The menu offers drinks, salads, brunch, lunch and dinner fares.

Hot Chocolate ($4.25 for medium, $4.75 for large)
Falafel ($7)
Fatteh (pita crisp, chickpea and yogurt)
Ful Medames (stewed fava beans)

The Original Bun ($4.50 for a single bun).

We opted for a plain bun, which has the caramel coffee crust and buttery interior. It’s a delicious, light bun that isn’t too sweet.

Eat: Fat Choi

On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, Soos on Ossington (known for their modern take on Malaysian street food) turns into Fat Choi, where the menu turns into plant-based deliciousness.

Jeff and I visited back in December for a double date with his friend (whom is vegan) and her boyfriend.

Fat Choi was planning to relaunch on March 24, 2020 from their Winter hiatus, but is currently postponed due to the COVID-19 situation.
