A few years ago, former Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahthir decided to team up with a Japanese businessman to bring in the concept of Japanese bakery to Malaysia. The first shop opened in Langkawi, and was quite a success. Since then, a few more branches have opened in Selangor, and the 2nd one was located in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.
Lunch at Pavilion proves to be a speedy affair. We were in and out within 30 minutes, and it's not bad considering it's a restaurant cum cafe.
I was also quite impressed with the service staffs. Although they were young, but there were eager to serve its customers.
There was nothing Japanese about the menu, so I had the Southern Cajun Chicken (RM22) - Crispy chicken drumpstick marinated with cajun spices and oriental bulb mix. Initally, I was worried that the fried chicken patty would be too dry, but when I bite into the burger, it was moist and juicy.
The basement of The Loaf is the bakery shop. Here, it competes with Breadtalk within the same complex, as well as Sun Moulin located at Lot 10 which is just a stone's throw away. I didn't have a chance to try the breads at The Loaf, so could not give my comments about standards here.
