The Bakery @ Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur

The Bakery has been making a name for itself among Ampang residents with their Ukay Heights outlet where people flock to for their fresh breads and pastries. If you don't feel like driving all the way there, they have recently opened outlets in Hartamas and Damansara Heights. The Hartmas outlet is located on the quieter area where Salero Negori, Bulldog, Aunty Nat and Saffron are while the Damansara Heights outlet is right next to the 7-Eleven at Plaza Damansara.

Since it was dinnertime when we visited, most of the fresh breads have been sold out but we did catch their hot meals. Dinner here is an early affair as the place closes at 8 pm. From the menu, I choose their moussaka which came with lots of minced beef and eggplant topped with grated cheese. It's a generous portion and really a good deal as they don't skimp on the minced beef here. Splashie Boy had the Beef Champi with Rice, his ideal comfort food with chunks of fork-tender beef and mushrooms served with a creamy sauce. Sorry no prices this time round as this came from the archives and the original thermopaper receipt is too faded for me to make out how much we paid. However, I do remember the prices to be average.

I've been meaning to pop over there for breakfast but somehow I never seem to find time. Incidentally I also noticed that the Bon Bon Cafe in Plaza Damansara has been recently renamed Siblings Coffeehouse. I guess that means no more yummy Tom Yam Spaghetti and Corn Cupcakes anymore at that place.

I reckon I'll enjoy the moussaka as I'm a BIG fan of eggplant.
Bon Bon is closed? :-(

lyrical lemongrass - yeah, you will as there's lots of eggplants in this moussaka. This is the Bon Bon in Dsara Heights, not the Atria one as that shld still be opened. Kinda surprised the one in Dsara Heights is closed.

Hi Hi! How was CNY celebrations?
I usually visit the Ampang branch of The Bakery but the one time I was in the Hartamas branch for breakfast, there was mould on the "freshly" baked bread. Guess they don't put any preservatives but they should've checked their stock properly.

Boo, another place you can try for breakfast or apparently for their famous asam laksa for lunch is the new Decanter in Jalan Setiabakti, Damansara Heights. We had the croissants for breakfast, quite yummy. Pricewise, not too expensive.

fulltime mom - didn't know their assam laksa was famous. I ate at the new outlet - the old one is super smokey, only had the fried noodles which was not as good as last time when it was run by different mgt.

Fulltime Mom said...

Don't know, but apparently lots of people are raving about it, and it's supposed to be supergood. might pop by there in the next few weeks to give it a try for myself.
