The Loaf Bakery & Bistro @ Pavilion is a Japanese concept bakery (co-owned by our former Prime Minister) which is renowned for freshly baked handmade artisan Bakery and Pastry, made daily using traditional Japanese techniques, with no chemicals, preservatives or artificial colouring.
Since the opening of its first outlet in Langkawi Island in 2006, The Loaf has steadily gained popularity and have now expanded to more than 10 outlets in Malaysia.
Having patronised their outlets in Pavilion and Great Eastern Mall, I found the one in Great Eastern Mall pretty small and more kiosk-like (with some seats outside) and offers only a limited menu plus less choices of their bakery items.
I did not get to try their Creamy Ampan (Japanese Red Bean Bun) in different flavours...perhaps, next time. For those who love cheese (not me though), you might want to try their Uhuhu cream cheesecakes.
My Personal Opinion
It's a wonderful place to just sit and relax over a good cup of coffee with some premium breads and pastries...ahh, it will make your morning sunshiny bright! It's also perfect for some afternoon 'pick-me-ups' when you need to rest your tired legs after a bout of shopping!
Their recently introduced new Asian dishes looks tempting as well but, more than anything else, I can't wait to return to try more of their bakery items coz I'm just loving their incredibly soft, fluffy, airy, light texture of their buns and oyaki.
Prices here are pretty reasonable with many of the bakery items under RM3. I absolutely loved their savoury (and some sweet) bakery items, especially the (OMG) Tuna Mayo Bun & Oyaki as well as their Vanilla Chiffon...so light, so soft, so good!
I have to come back for more (of their savoury breads and pastries)....and soon!
