The Loaf "U hu! hu!" Cheesecakes @ Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur

Decided to do a DOUBLE posts today, trying to forget the disastrous outing at Alexis (refer previous post HERE).

Funny name for some fancy cheese cakes?

Since reading various posts by other floggers on The Loaf's amazing Japanese-style cheese-cupcakes, I knew I had to try them someday. Ladies & gentlemen, D-Day has arrived, in style.

??? Orange - Forgot the full name, but citrus-y, tangy, and sweet. (3.5/5)

Durian Obsession - Probably the most obnoxious/smelly/fragrant/flavourful of the lot, sure to attract durian-lovers. The soft, crumbly layer on top has an uncanny resemblance to pavlova/meringue texture. (4/5)

Tangy Lemon - The plain Jane of the pack. Slight hint of lemon aftertaste. (3/5)

Refreshing Longan - Bland, with a pair of longan fruits embedded underneath, but the crunchy almond flakes save the day. (3.5/5)

Glitzy Strawberries - Presentable, dazzling, albeit stingy pistachio bits, no doubt the superstar of the lot, stealing the limelight from the otherwise dark/gloomy/pale colours of the others. Sweet, typical strawberry jam flavour. (4/5)

Luxurious Chocolate - Luscious, decadent, not run-of-the-mill type of cocoa powder. Possible best of the lot. Simple, but got the job done. (4.5/5)

The whole half dozen of fluffy goodness (RM25)

A saving grace, after the Alexis episode. RM5 per piece, but BUY 5 FREE 1 promotion. Get them while they're still around. Various flavours available for picking. Sweet tooth FINALLY satisfied. Time to move on to some meatier deals in following posts .... G'nite. v_v

Location : The Loaf @ Lot 3.13.00 on 3rd floor of Pavilion, 168, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur.

Those are the ratings for every u hu hu! I have tried the green tea and another flavor...forgotten which 1...not bad but a bit on the pricey side.
This shop is opened by our 'beloved TUN DR M if I am not wrong or if the sources where I got the info are reliable.

Haha..Finally u have tried the cakes!Told u it was nice rite =P. U shud have mention abit on Dr.M owning the shop ma..That's why the stuffs there are super expensive to accomodate his love for super expensive projects!Well, if u want me to compare the price for a cheesecake @Secret Recipe vs U Hu!Hu!, i will go for the latter one!Thumbs up!

Hey, all the capcakes look tempting, can't wait to try them. I really like Japanse style cheesecake, it's soft and not over cheezy. Will give it try during my coming trip to KL :)

This reminds me of Cupcake Chic at The Curve.

Oh my goodness!!!!!!!!

Why can't I find all these in The Loaf Langkawi??? :(

CK Lam said...

KL folks are very lucky to try out so many various types of snacks, cakes and pastry.

kca : they're my personal ratings, as what Victor said. Buy 5 Free 1, means RM4 per pc, definitely cheaper than Secret Recipe's RM6.30 cheesecake.

Victor : yeah, the 1st was in Langkawi, this is the 2nd branch I believe.

MBoy : yeah, I thought many would've known The Loaf somehow is related to ... =P

cumi & ciki : oh, but for me, anything 'stinking' of durian aroma is a plus!

min : yeah, and I still rmbr how you baked one, and I had none. =(

jason : Looks like them, the price is the same for half dozen, but Cupcake Chic is after all, cupcakes. but these fluffy babies got my vote!

NKOTB : I also thought these are a temporary promo items, but think the response is overwhelming, they plan to prolong the promotion.

CKLam : yeah, living standard higher than here in Ipoh, but KL-ites are luckier as restaurants/cafes/bakeries are blooming like mushrooms after rain.
