Home Uncategorized Bread Basket @ Bangsar South

I love sugar fixes in the evenings, and would usually crave for cakes or pastries around 3-4pm. Bread Basket was recommended by a friend, who loves pastries even more than I do. Seeing how we haven’t met up in more than a month, I agreed to meet her there for a cup of coffee and some pastries. While its tagline says “Swiss-ly Fresh”, this bakery is owned and managed by a German Malaysian Resident. All the ingredients are imported from Switzerland. The pastry/bread dough is produced in a factory in Bangi, frozen and baked at the shop. At almost 8pm, there were quite a few customers enjoying the pastries at the al-fresco area. I tried the custard bar (RM2.95) and hazelnut bar (RM3.45), while my less greedy friend has a chocolate roll (RM2.55). The pastries were light, nicely flaky and generously filled. Custard bar has always been my favourite, with its creamy centre. Also quite good was the hazelnut bar. It had a sticky sweet texture from the caramelised brown sugar, and a delicious nutty flavour. The chocolate roll was “very rich and chocolate-y” according to my friend. I didn’t try this, but from the looks of it, it was loaded with chocolate. If I ever want a sugar rush, half a dozen of these would do the trick! The German coffee was quite pleasant to drink and I found it very affordable. Where else can you get a decent cup of coffee for RM3.50? And no, the coffee from Mc******* does not count – it is seldom decent.

While catching up, I spotted the carrot cake at the counter. Greed got the better of me and I ordered it. This carrot cake (RM6.50 per slice, RM75 for whole) had plenty of nuts and raisins inside, giving it a nutty, slightly crumbly texture. The cream cheese topping was a tad too sweet for my liking, as the cake was already quite sweet from the raisins. Overall, the pastries were quite decent. I like that they are kept in a glass display, and the staff will serve the pastries to you. That way, the pastries are not left in the open, and it’s more hygienic, don’t you think?
