Best Place to Grab Some Buns 

Koko Bakery

Neat, tidy, and contemporary, this bakery and coffee shop in Asia Town stocks an eye-catching assortment of freshly baked goods, along with noodle bowls, pork katsu, and yummy bubble tea. But it's the dozens of sweet and savory buns that will catch your eye: plump little pillows of tender dough, filled with everything from fruit, jams, and jellies to veggies and meats. What will it be today? A subtly sweet corn danish? A melt-in-the-mouth red-bean bun? Or perhaps the savory curried-beef doughnut, like a neatly packed sandwich you can tote about and eat with one hand? True, not every bun will please every Midwestern palate; but with Koko Bakery's many fanciful options, exploration is half the fun.
