Mall Food: O' My Buns Is Open at Park Place Mall

Posted By on Tue, Jul 10, 2012 at 12:00 PM

The new take-out restaurant O' My Buns is open at Park Place Mall at 5870 E. Broadway Blvd. It sells affordable and slightly-sweet buns in a variety of flavors, coffee and tea. From a press release:

O’My Buns is owned and operated by James Shin, who notes that although popular in other parts of the world, including Asia, the light and tasteful bun is fairly new to the United States.

“It’s a relatively new concept and we think it will attract health-conscious consumers who are looking for something lighter than a traditional cinnamon roll or pastry,” he said. “It’s a new fresh item and I think Tucson needs something like this, particularly for consumers who are more health-savvy and want an alternative to higher fat and calorie items.”

We doubt this will loosen Cinnabon's well-earned grip on the mall-based sweet roll market, but it is nice to have options. Prices are in the $2 to $5 range.
