Review of Bonchaz Bakery Cafe

During our trip to Korea, Kris and I had the privilege to try out this awesome Malaysian Coffee Bun in a certain coffee shop in Seoul. So, when we saw a deal on Groupon for Bonchaz Bakery Cafe, we really wanted to try and see if their Coffee Buns were as good as the one we tried in Asia.

So, we ordered their Mix & Match 1/2 Dozen ($8.95 with no HST), and tried their The Original Bonchaz (regularly $1.50 each) with butter and icing sugar, the Banana Walnut ($1.75) with banana pieces and California walnuts, and the Chocolate Truffle ($1.75) made with 70% Cocoa. Sadly, we were not overly impressed with the Coffee Buns. They were not as crisp and fresh as the one we tried in Korea, and the bun itself was quite dense and not as fluffy as we would have liked. Of the flavours we tried, I liked the Original and the Chocolate Truffle the best. All of them were quite buttery and the flavours were good, but again, I think comparing them to the Coffee Buns we had in Asia, we were disappointed.

So, if you’ve never tried Coffee Buns before, it is definitely worth a try. But if you’ve had them in Asia before, then they may not live up to your expectations.
