Oori Bake Shop
Where we've featured it
Open for takeout
The pandemic lockdown saw the nationwide rise of the at-home pop-up, Miami included. Essentially, these were people making food in their own kitchens and running small-scale takeout operations from their homes. I tried a few great ones over the last few months, but Oori is still the one I think about most. Run by Helen Kim, Oori specializes in sourdough baked goods, and if I close my eyes and try, I can still smell Kim’s everything charcoal rolls, still warm from the oven. Her shokupan and red bean and dark chocolate milk buns also now live in my head, where, about every week, they whisper “order me” into my subconscious.
Charcoal Rolls With Everything Seasoning
This week we published a guide to Miami At-Home Pop-Ups - and while we haven’t been able to sample every place on the list, we did order some things from Oori Bake Shop. They serve a lot of very good baked goods here, like various sourdoughs, shokupan, and cinnamon rolls with lemon cream cheese frosting. But their savory charcoal rolls with everything seasoning really blew us away. It’s like the best dinner roll you ever had married an everything bagel. We will be ordering these again and so should you.
