The Loaf @Pavilion Mall, Kuala Lumpur

Date of Visit: February 5, 2013

This three-storey bakery, eatery and restaurant is Dr Mahatir’s baby. Dr.Mahatir is THE MAN who is responsible for building the Petronas Twin Towers. I read an article on this bakery-cum-restaurant in Malaysia Airlines in-flight magazine when it first opened a few years ago. Dr.Mahatir ‘fell in love’ with Japanese bread when visiting Japan and decided to bring in a Japanese-style bakery to Malaysia. (Yup, I had celebrity spotted him dining alfresco!).

The interior of the third floor restaurant

Very simply decorated. Looking like a developer’s advertising mural for a show flat,

Menu with pictures. Very Japanese. At least I know what I am going to get!

The most enticing and descriptive item on the menu: “The Loaf Cube -60C: A must try The Loaf signature drink comprises of a glass of Espresso ice cubes frozen deep into -60C DAIREI SUPER FREEZER. Enjoy the coffee’s richness as it slowly melt in the warm fresh milk. BE WARNED! IT’S ADDICTIVE! (RM12)“. Good salesmanship! I am taken!!

The drink arrives…deep frozen espresso cubes…

Some entertainment – watching the waitress pour warm milk into the glass…

This is a serious iced coffee with very good strength! And will I order this again? Most definitely!

To the food:

Lamb kofta: This was my order and it came with 6 deep-fried lamb meatballs in rich tomato gravy sandwiched in a baguette. There is a separate Moroccan inspired mayo in another saucer – very good kick and I enjoyed it.

Seafood cake: The seafood cake is sandwiched in a sweet bun. Looks cute and apparently fresh and very tasty.

Beef burger: Lots of mushrooms and avo. Man-O-man!!

So, what is Dr.Mahatir’s favourite breakfast??
