Lion has just visited the place and as you know it, Lion loves to eat. Lion feels like having bread today though. I heard from my friends that there is this new bakery place right located near to AEON’s entrance. Lion’s friend told me that this place, The Loaf Sunway Pyramid has not only good breads and pastries but also instaworthy food and drink. So follow Lion to find out what The Loaf Sunway Pyramid offers – is more than just a bakery?
Lion chatted with the Operations Manager Tony and Chef Johnson. It’s truly inspiring how they began and brought it back to the market again. The Loaf was born out of interest when Japanese bakeries were scarce in Malaysia. Not to mention, our current prime minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohammed was a fan of Japanese bakery. This is where The Loaf was born to introduce Japanese bakery to all Malaysians. Chief Baker, Mr. Johnson married the intricate details and techniques of Japanese baking while offering a flavor that is uniquely Malaysian. Majority of their ingredients are sourced from countries like Belgium, France as they believed quality is the best that they can offer to their customers.

The chicken is marinated with spices that are earthy, rich while keeping it tangy inside your mouth.
Their other star dish, Laksa Utara, has complex taste of sweet, sour, spicy and savoury, yet the ingredients are not drowned all those flavours. Each of the flavours in the broth are balanced, sparking a refreshing taste without being overpowering. The bouncy noodles and crispy vegetables enhances the Laksa Utara by offering a different texture.

It resulted an interesting fusion twist and it tastes super yummy with a strong, creamy and pepperish chicken filling mellowed down by the bread topped with cheese for that extra savoury flavour.
