Touche Pastries, Section 17

by Bangsar Babe

Kouign amann is quite possibly my favourite pastry to eat – if I could only pick one. Think of it as a denser version of croissant that’s caramelised with plenty of sugar and salted butter. Hence the name “kouign-amann”, French for butter and cake. One can find a pretty decent kouign amann at Touche Pastries in Section 17; a place that serves an array of freshly baked pastries.


Kouign amann (pronounced kween ah-MON)


Touche Pastries in Section 17

Prior to our visit, I read some not so good reviews about Touche Pastries so Jien and I kept an open mind. The space is small and a tad dark because of the colour scheme and plants, but it gives off an unpretentious vibe. If you get what I mean. No one is there to “be seen” but they were there to have coffee and pastries.

I actually prefer it this way. ;)

Order from the counter

You’ll need to order your drinks at the counter and get the staff to assist you with pastry selection. It’s best to get there around 9 or 10am I reckon – that’s when you get a wider selection of pastries to pick from.


No such thing as too much pastry


Breakfast croissant

Jien and I shared an almond croissant (RM7.80), sea-salt kouign amann (RM6.80), chocolate banana roll (RM7.80) and a breakfast set of croissant sandwich with black coffee (RM14.90). If you’re looking for a hearty breakfast, the croissant sandwich will fill you up nicely.


Decent enough coffee

Think flaky, buttery croissant with layers of egg, cheese and fresh veggies inside. Not a mind-blowing combination but they prepared it properly so it was delicious. If black coffee isn’t your thing, Touche Pastries also serve milk-based coffees, like the flat white I ordered. No fancy beans like ; just straight up decent coffee and they did it better than the former.


Chocolate Banana Roll

The chocolate banana roll is a delicious mash-up of caramelised banana slices, milk chocolate drizzle and buttery pastry in one bite. It is also a lot denser than their other pastries. A solid treat. Don’t expect high quality cacao chocolate – the price is reasonable so your expectations should be too.



Kouign amann with sea salt

I rather enjoyed the kouign amann as it comes with sprinkles of sea salt for a rounder flavour. In terms of pastry, it’s not as flaky as I’d like it to be. But it’s really not bad at all – I would buy this again without hesitation.



Almond croissant

My favourite of the lot was Touche’s almond croissant. Only because I generally love almond croissant and this one had a generous serving of almond flakes and powdered sugar. Like the chocolate banana roll, this one is also pretty solid so one almond croissant fills you up.



Overall, I thought my whole experience at Touche Pastries was alright. Service isn’t stellar, I’ll admit but if you discount that bit and focus on their value-for-money pastries, you would probably feel the same way I do.
