The Gingerbread Man @ Ben's Independent Grocer, Publika, Solaris Dutamas KL

The Gingerbread Man is the bakery section in Ben's Independent Grocer. From the side of the wine cellar, you can actually get a view of the kitchen and watch the baking action. I asked the girl at the counter and she said the pastries and bread you see at The Gingerbread Man are baked first thing in the morning.

We love freshly baked bread and pastries so we were definitely interested in what they had to offer. The brioche looks really pretty but we decided to get the English Muffin for breakfast the next day (Christmas Eve) -- it's been a while since we last had that whereas I just made brioche this year. The pretty cakes caught our eye too, but since we've already had a dessert planned for Christmas, we forgo it this time. 

Pretty cakes

Freshly baked daily


English Muffin (RM2) -- it was good, we used it for a special breakfast we made for Christmas Eve morning (blogpost coming soon!)

Sweet pastries

We got a raisin twist (RM2) to share and it was really good! It was pillowy soft (literally!)... no chewing required!

Can't wait to try more the next time we visit Ben's Independent Grocer again.
