i like your buns

Take what you will from that headline. The buns above are a little lacking (even if these jeans contribute to the illusion that I actually have something there) compared to the contents of the images below. I wore this out to hang out with friends and walk around Pasadena after Mexico's dismal game against Argentina (I knew it was coming but I was still affected nevertheless).

papparich

I've been trying to blog about Papparich for days now but I don't know how to accurately describe what exactly went into my mouth. That "Father of All Buns" tagline is an understatement: upon first bite, the crunchy sugary exterior gives way to an inside which is almost too soft and fluffy to comprehend. I uttered "HOLY SHIT" but hadn't even reached the best part: a glob of melted butter at the center. Butter. B-U-T-T-E-R. THERE'S A FUCKING GLOB OF BUTTER IN THE CENTER, GUYS. I don't know what else I can say, I'm salivating right now thinking about it and am angry that I won't get another until I go back down in August. Really, really angry. If you are ever anywhere in the vicinity of Pasadena, please GO NOW.

Is Papparich an Asian bakery?? The buns look really familiar to pastries/bread I've had in Korean and Japanese bakeries... I live right by Pasadena so I'll have to go and see!

Cella Babee said...

Ooh I live in Pasadena! I guess I better try those buns!

catty said...

Esther said...

ohh we've those buns here as well though not from paparich, but i gather they're similar from the way you described them. we've them in coffee flavour as well & those're awesome too <3

i love your style, your outfits are always so whimsical & reminds me of alexa chung :)

BUNS WITH BUTTER. Holy lord. Why do you always find the most appetising looking stuff? Now I am craving. AGAIN.

rosanguyen said...

I love the blouse you're wearing but.
OMG OMG OMG! SUGARY CRISPY EXTERIOR?! AND A BLOB OF BUTTER IN THE CENTRE.
THAT SOUNDS LIKE A SNACK HEAVEN!

Leslee said...

Dip-tea said...

yumm yumm yumm, food porn alert!

denise said...

guuuuuurl~~~ you really DO need to come to HK! We have this place, actually it's from Singapore originally but they have this toast that's got coconut butter spread on top and in between the two toast slices, is a glob of butter.

OR there's lai yao ju, which is similar to the one you ate. Crunchy on the outside and split in half and toasted again with a dollop of butter hahaha so good!!! Expect to gain like 15 pounds if you ever come here to visit!

raven said...

i'd put in extra work at the gym for just one bite of what you describe. fluffy carbs, dallop of butter AND sweet outer crust goodness???

*faints*

avalonne lou summers said...

You look so '70s, I love this look so much!

Andi said...

You had me at butter. These look incredible!

thebroguetrader said...

I die for butter. Especially darigold. Yes, I have a favorite brand of butter; that's how ridiculous I am.

Alice said...

OMG, they have that papparich chain in Seoul!!! i tried it there.. they're so sweet but yummy!

i really enjoy this outfit, it's kind of like the simple classy hippie outfit, haha.

AND YES i've seen the glitter nail polish at sephora! duh! i especially love the confetti one... i tried it on the tips of my nails in-store and they looked cool but a bitch to take off!

Janis said...

Oh! This bun was really popular in Singapore like 4-5 years back and many franchise and imitations started popping up, but it died after few months of hype!

And they had shop names like Mamabun, Papabun etc.

Shelby said...

your blog always makes me so hungry!

Kacey said...

ROTI BUNS :D

bravegrrl said...

love your outfit and i'm gonna check it out soon, i'm 10 min away!

Sundari said...

The buns do look nice, and you have nothing to worry about with filling the pants out. Just eat more buns! Kidding, your body looks very proportional which is the most important thing.

Sewon said...

Haha, I love the bun/pun. :P But really, your outfit is lovely, as always and I want some papparich!

MELISSA Z. said...

love your trasparent shirt, so chic! <3

And now I'm dying for one of those buns. I can only imagine how delicious with the butter in the middle, too!

I need to eat that bun!! I'll have to take my chef boyfriend as well - he knows butter is what makes everything taste better. Well hehe that, cheese & bacon. Muahaha!!

I'm really loving your hair lately! I think it's grown out now and kind of no longer has that obvious "I was just cut" edge about it.

The buns are totally delish! I know first hand down here in Australia because my brother owns a Papparoti store and I never knew they opened a franchise in America! That is so awesome :) Those buns will never stop being delicious!

You look straight out of the 60s and chic, I love it. I'm usually not a fan of bellbottoms but you pull it off well. Onto more important things, a papparich needs to open in chicago. NOW. It's such a tease reading about this but never stuffing it into my mouth :(

haha, so cute. i love your hair--i want to bring it to my hairdresser. i feel like i must've said this before, but its still true!

Anonymous said...

The way you love food and describe it is so mouth-wateringly delicious. Haha I'm a bit jealous of all the food you get to taste and try. And with all that food, you atill have a pretty figure, amazing!
By the way, your bangs are very cute :) They inspired me a couple of weeks ago , while I was looking at your blog, and also with my craving for bangs these past years to cut them myself, which was a very bad idea :< I cut them too short and choppy. Plus, even though I've trimmed my own bangs before, I don't have enough forehead and chin for it, my round-face syndrome (even a hair stylist was like no bangs for you!). But my weird bangs gave my friend a laugh and this fun experiment gone a bit wrong helped smother that bang-ing desire. In the end, thanks for the inspirations.
