I am a regular at TTDI, family and friends live in the area and so, I ‘lepak’ there all the time. Every now and then, I take a short drive around to see if there was a new addition in the area. During one of these drives, I saw The Bread Bar. This was somewhere in November last year, when construction work was still going on.
Fast forward to this month, I was told that they are open for business and from the looks of it, are doing rather well. How well? Well enough that there is a waiting line out the door. There also is a 90 minute time limit that customers adhere to. That ought to tell you these guys are doing well as time limit are often implemented when there are lots of people dropping by .. right? The Bread Bar is located on the quieter side of Lorong Rahim Kajai. So, a waiting line is something you’d immediately notice as it is an obvious contrast to the rest of the shops in that row.
When I arrived, there was 6 people ahead of me in the waiting line. So, I left my contact details on the sheet provided. There was chairs provided outside the cafe for us to sit but I felt more comfortable forgoing the mid day heat and sit in my car instead. About 10 minutes later, I was called and at the entrance was assigned a table inside.
Yea, lots of people inside. I can understand the waiting line outside. Almost every table was occupied. Besides eating in, I also noticed a bunch of people dropping by simply to purchase bread and pastries. The Bread Bar seem to be doing well.
Chicken Ham Sandwich, RM 27
I was in the mood for a sandwich and ended up ordering this. It was made up of Focaccia bread with pine nut pesto, homemade ricotta, chicken ham with sun dried tomatoes. It was a tasty sandwich. The taste of pesto and ricotta was evident, with the ham, made up a yummy, filling dish.
Do keep in mind that they charge SST here – RM 2.70. Rather than paying RM 27, I ended up forking out RM 29.70 for this sandwich, almost 30 ringgit but I do understand that this is an affluent area and judging from the crowd, people are willing to pay the $$$ to eat here. Fair enough, the sandwich tasted good anyways 🙂
…. and we ‘tapau’ a dessert.
Croissant and Butter Pudding, RM 25
Usually, it would be Bread & Butter Pudding but here, rather than using bread, croissant was used instead. I am generally not a fan of this particular dessert but my family is. I usually take their word for it when they like a certain dish as they are fussy eaters and I come from a family of bakers. So, they know their stuff and with this dessert … they loved it. According to them, the pudding on its own was awesome. It was soft and dense, with just the right amount of moisture and without an overbearing taste of richness. The sauce lacked flavor. Perhaps adding in some vanilla would do it wonders. The sauce aside, the Croissant and Butter Pudding was really good. They would buy it again.
