Oori Bake Shop

It’s hard to think of a good thing about the pandemic, but, if I had to say something nice, I could talk about Oori Bake Shop. They were one of the wave of at-home pop-ups, where chefs made and sold delicious things from their homes and apartments. I tried some great home-cooked dishes over the last year, but Oori is still the one I think about most. Run by Helen Kim, Oori specializes in sourdough baked goods, and I can still smell Kim’s everything charcoal rolls, warm from the oven. Her shokupan and red bean and dark chocolate milk buns also live in my head, where, about every week, they whisper “order me” into my subconscious. And, in a happy ending we so desperately need, according to their Instagram Oori Bakeshop will soon have an actual location in Edgewater.

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 I haven’t been able to sample every place on the list, I 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 me away. It’s like the best dinner roll you ever had married an everything bagel. I will be ordering these again and so should you.
