An outstanding veggie sandwich, and sticky buns for the ages

I know what you're thinking. How could a grilled tofu sandwich possibly be a dish worth noting? Somehow the magicians over at Flour Bakery in the South End neighborhood of Boston have made it so. The tofu is sliced into half-inch thick sheets and grilled lightly, so that the outside is crisp and the inside is still creamy. Usually when tofu is prepared as simply as it is here, the flavor is nonexistent — however, in this case it is boldly seasoned with salt and pepper, and gets a citrusy kick from a squeeze of lemon.

Enough about the sandwich (as delicious as it is), the star of the show at Flour Bakery is the sticky buns. These are the kinds of buns that you'll want to eat with a fork. They're just too messy to pick up with your hands. The soft, elastic dough, which has a subtle yeasty flavor, is baked and then coated with a syrupy brown glaze that tastes like caramel. Topping off the bun is a blanket of chopped, roasted pecans.

The atmosphere at Flour Bakery is like an upscale coffee shop. At one end of the eatery is the bakery counter, which is lined with stacks of the pastries, cakes, cookies, and other confections being sold that day. Venture down to the other end of the shop and you'll find rows of wooden tables. But good luck finding a seat — it's always crowded.

Sticky Buns and Squished Sandwiches

Though Flour chef Joanne Chang is famous enough for her sticky buns that she won a throwdown with Bobby Flay, hounds are widely divided on the baked goods at her Fort Point and South End shops. “I’ve never had a single thing from Flour that really tasted special or worth a trip,” says StriperGuy, while Buddernut says, “My 5 inch tongue says whoooaaa, when we going back?”

Favored items, according to Flour fans:

• Those famous sticky buns, though they typically sell out. tweetie phones ahead: “No problem taking the order and they are packed and ready when you arrive.”
• Hazelnut-almond dacquoise cake best eaten at room temperature, rather than chilled straight out of the bakery case.
• Chang’s version of the Oreo.
• Raspberry-lime rickies.
• The lamb sandwich sandwiches in general are a strong point, particularly the lamb, the BLT, and the vegan sandwich: “grilled tofu, grilled veg, olive tapenade, panini’d bread,” drools bella_sarda.
• Banana bread.
• Lime-cornmeal cookies.

Chang plans to open a Cambridge outpost in June.
