Doing your diploma in nursing and you are craving for pastries in KL? Do you know that Kuala Lumpur has a plethora of bakeries to choose from, ranging from comforting sourdough loaves to meticulously created cakes and traditional pastries? Check out some of the city’s top bakeries — you won’t mind the extra carbs!
- Der Backmeister
This legendary bakery in TTDI will be recognised by anyone who likes bread. Der Backmeister, a champion of all kinds of German bread, has also gotten into the pickup and delivery game during the pandemic, guaranteeing that you don’t have to cross borders illegally only to get your dose of all the good carbs.
- Tommy Le Baker
Tommy Le Baker, who started small in Sentul, has pared everything down to the bare essentials at the eccentric Zhongshan Building in Kampung Attap. There are no beautiful tarts or flaky croissants in this bakery; it just sells sourdough bread. It’s not like it matters. The sourdough bread here has won fans from far and wide thanks to ongoing experimenting with flour, salt, and water.
- Jaslyn Cakes
You may have already visited Jaslyn Cakes if you are a huge fan of pastries and all things sweet. This beautiful small bakery, located in the centre of Bangsar, serves a variety of fresh baked goods, including cakes, scones, and cookies. Because there are so few seats, folks frequently take their sweet treats home. Mango shortcake, Pavlova, and Red Velvet are some of the desserts to try.
- Kenny Hills Bakers
Kenny Hills Bakers aren’t the first time we’ve featured them, and it won’t be the last. If you’ve ever visited the original Bukit Tunku outlet (back when it was simply a small business lot), you’ll recognise the rows of freshly baked pastries that line the shelves. Every piece is delicious, and you may order it at the Bukit Tunku outlet, Ampang, Desa Park City, or even the Nourish by KHB outlet in Bukit Damansara.
- Levain Boulangerie & Patisserie
Levain, who is housed in a charming colonial-style home off Jalan Imbi, smells divinely of warm bread and delicious coffee. The stone oven continues to bake bread and pastries from morning until night. Levain is where locals go to get away from the hustle and bustle of the major metropolis, with its peaceful environment and neoclassical decor. Delicious food in baskets and pastries in a glass display can be found in one corner, with varieties such as maple log bread, cream cheese rye bread, and oats rye.
- Souka Bakeshop
Souka is one of the several Muslim-friendly bakeries in KL that would satisfy anyone’s sweet taste. They began small in TTDI and have subsequently moved to SS15 to accommodate larger crowds. Because it’s a Muslim-owned bakery, you can rest assured that all of the ingredients are Halal. Try their original and basque burnt cheesecakes, as well as select premium flavours like Red Velvet and Banoffee. Apart from sweets, Souka offers a variety of major courses as well as good coffee.
