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.

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.

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.

Four Leaves Bakery, Penang

   Posted by: CK Lam

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.

Wondering what is EPI???

It is basically baguettes shaped like leaves…. with ham and garnish with a bit of pepper.
Quoting my son on the taste of the EPI: chewy yummy snack…been eating it for 10 years steady and its still fantastic…just take your time to chew it as can be a bit tough.

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.

 

The first meal to start the day is having breakfast and what’s more with bread products. We find it nutritious and it goes well with various spreads, both sweet and savory or with meats, cheeses, and vegetables.

 

Recently we found out about Rainforest Bakery, located along Chulia Street in George Town, Penang.
