It's just funny how every time I go to Montreal, I either branch to the Macaroons section or I branch to Cocobun. I quite understand why I am so drawn to this store, it reminds me of Big treat in Nigeria.
I enter the store knowing what I want to take out of it, which is the hot dog and relish. The main flavour in this dish is probably the relish, but the texture and taste make a perfect pastry. I wasn't going to miss this pastry for anything in the world. Even though this store has the culmination of all the pastries you can think of, be it sweet (fruit tarts, winter-melon cookie, chocolate melt- filled bun, and so on) or savoury (bacon shallots, mini Hawaiian pizza, chicken teriyaki, and so on.)
Just after your senses get attached to these sweet and savoury unadulterated pastries, you also get to find out that coco bun prides itself on attaining excellence in baking light and sponge cakes. Also, they do have drinks such as Lychee bubble tea, Taro bubble tea, and so on. It's definitely one to look out for as you get to enjoy these drinks before work, during lunch break, or after school.
What I like about CocoBun is the affordability. For me to purchase something that taste so good, looks appetizing, and is affordable is beauty within itself.
My two day trip was cut short as I had to be on my way back to Toronto. I definitely miss Montreal. Overall, my trip was good and two places I am looking to visit when next I go back is the Montreal Botanical Garden and Notre-Dame Basilica.
