Heaps and loads of baked stuff in displays that leaves the visitor gaping for making a decision.
The rolls seem heavier than for most competitors when held on the hand. At rush hour, walking around the shelves makes one feel like in a train station. Coffee from Single Origin Roasters in Surry Hills is offered but there is always the happy risk that one can overload for the purchases. Everything is take away, there is no seating. The best strategy is to reckon who in your family or fraternity house loves what and you
will have one interesting gem for each individual the next morning. The Dough Collective says it approaches each creation with love and care, and so should the buyer.
The view along George Street, next to the Metro Theatre and straight across the Event cinemas in Sydney CBD. Perfect and strategic location for office workers, tourists, university students and shoppers. A bakery that goes to the next dimension non its spectrum of flavours, choices and pricing options. If you buy the rolls for home, they can last hop to 30 days in a freezer, and when thawing them, do spray over some water to help ease the process before putting them to reheat in an oven. The roll size is good as a snack, lunch or breakfast.
These are tame combinations in the picture above, wait till you see and taste pumpkin, ham pizza toast, Belgian chic, goji, orange-choc, Grana Padanoparmesan, longan, hot dog, kimchi and more. I saw a higher percentage of savoury buns when compared to the expected sweet ones. My own favourite hands down is the Gangnam, with several Korean inspired ingredients. There is a wholesomeness in the stomach after devouring a Dough Collective roll.
These artisan breads are not made from bulk styled ingredients and cost around AUD 5 each.
Carefully thought out designs around the shop show off the breads at its best. Visitors can sample bits and
portions of each flavour before deciding to buy or let go. There is a fusion feel about this bakery, it is not totally
Asian but neither is it fully Australian. Taiwan interests are behind this business concept and model -
the outlet in Sydney CBD opened in February 2014. The rolls are not as rich as
contemporary Western styled breads and offer a different sensation and texture if you
had only prior confined yourself to sourdough.
