The One located in Bayan Lepas, Penang is lined with massive rows of new shophouses. Most of the outlets are dedicated to food and beverage. Among them is Wheat Connection Bakery. Opened a few months ago, Nazeri Ismail is the proprietor and pastry chef in charge.
Many would be familiar with Nazeri, the former executive pastry chef at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, Penang. He has created many cakes for the Penang state governor’s birthday celebrations and all are wonderful works of art.
“It has been a long baking journey of over 20 years and it is time I start my own bakery,” said Nazeri.

Bagels are a popular bread product in western countries. Shaped by hand into the form of a ring, the bagel is first boiled and then baked. Sesame seeds and poppy seeds are the most common toppings.
Many enjoy this “O” shaped bread fresh or toasted with a spread of butter or cream cheese and fillings of seafood, meat or egg.

China House is one of the busiest dining and lifestyle outlets within the Unesco heritage zone of George Town. Occupying three refurbished colonial shop houses with facades facing Beach Street and Victoria Street, China House offers a great dining experience. There are five different dining areas besides a wine store, art spaces and a venue for live shows.
The cafe serves all-day breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Diners can whet their appetite at the casual cafe Kopi C, formal dining room of BTB Restaurant, an outdoor courtyard, the Canteen & Bar and a private dining room.
At Kopi C, there are many dishes to savour alongside an array of rich cakes and pastries displayed on a long table at its bakery. The place has since received many comments on being the haven for cakes.

Golden Crust, a kiosk with its core of freshly baked hand made gourmet pies, tarts & quiches opened recently in Gurney Plaza. There is a range of fillings and crust including crust pastry and puff pastry. I was overwhelmed by the selections on the menu.
The cottage pie is rich, with a filling of meatiness, green peas, corn, carrots, blend of fresh herbs and a layer of creamy mashed potatoes. The combination of flavors are well-balanced. It is well received by customers, especially for those who like the smooth texture potato with light gravy.
Leong Chee Kee biscuits located on the ground floor corner of the People’s Court off Cintra street was known for its traditional Cantonese wedding biscuits. The business set up by Leong Chee Kee has since been taken over by his son, Leong How Keng.
On my visit to this biscuit shop, I had the opportunity to watch the owner make the Chinese snacks of Coconut Tarts, Khay Nui Ko/Gai Dan Go (egg cakes) and Hup Toh Soe (Chinese walnut cookie)…perfect teatime treats.
Yummy coconut tarts fresh right out of the oven! Fantastic!
Four Leaves Bakery is located right inside Gama Supermarket Penang. All the items are baked in the little kitchen on the premises. Our whole family have been buying bread from this bakery since a long long time. They have a wide selection of delicious breakfast/teatime favourites and we have tried most of them. My youngest son’s favourite is off course their EPI.
Fresh butter rolls and mini butter tops.
This bakery outlet has stayed on for so many years. I am sure those that have patronise this bakery will agree with me that their items are really nice although their prices are slightly above average.
Nowadays we have been patronising this bakery whenever we need to replenish our supply of bread.
