Suburban Onion Buns

The onion buns at Suburban restaurant were my favourite. I’ve tried recipes on the Internet to try and replicate them with no success. Anyone have a recipe that tastes like them?

Those buns were made by Sally’s bakery back in the day and sold to the Suburban. Most of their recipes were also used by Kuipers. Maybe you call them and ask if they can make them?

They Were So Good!

I miss that place, remember the buns very well. A close second used to be the ones from the Dutch Mill bakery when it was on Rosser Ave.  
I think I heard that Kuiper's make them, will have to drop in there one day soon.....but everything from there is just too good to come out without a whole bag full.

The suburban was at the corner of 26th and Vic, on the south west corner where the clay pot is.

The Suburban closed down in the late seventies.

The suburban closed in the late ‘80s/early ‘90s. Anyone know the exact year?

That would be awesome! Dutch Mill was awesome too. Kuipers might be a good idea. It closed early 90”s I believe

Back in the day

The Suburban was one of the nicer restaraunts in town. Also back then the Canadian Inn, the North Hill and the Red Oak Inn. For a special meal, that's where you went! I did think the Suburban closed in the late 70's/early 80's but I may be mistaken.

It definitely closed in very late 80's early 90's. My husband and I had our engagement supper there in January 1987. AS for nicer restaurants, there was also Kokonos & Red Fox back in the day. We also used to go to Beef & Barrel still do. Beef & Barrel is the only one left from that time frame.

The Red Fox was where Barnacles used to be, right? I used to love going to Kokonos restaurant and on Sunday nights the bar used to compete with the North Hill Inn for cheap drinks. And yeah, who could forget the Venice House on the NW corner of tenth and Rosser?! The food was amazing and the ambiance of sitting in those huge barrels was so fun when I was little!

Yes the Red Fox was before Barnacles and after the Twin Pines. Venice house was on the corner of 10th and Princess. Miss the Venice House as well. I also remember going to DK's on the corner of Vanhorne & 18th they had the best burgers

Onion buns

Actually, Sally's Bakery was owned by the gentleman that owns Kuipers Bakerys parents. It's been a very long and successful business. Not to take the post sideways, but at the mention of DK's, Double Bar S (where the strip mall on 18th near Richmond Ave. is had great burgers also! Same as Cirle 8 Drive Inn. It was on 18th St. North) and I believe where the funeral home is now. Wow. That was a long time ago!

Yes, mama3, you’re right! It was princess, not Rosser.  
 
Yep! Sally’s was originally owned by the kuipers and named it after their daughter, then Russ kirwan bought the bakery and its recipes. They made so many yummy things I miss!
