Two weeks ago Bay said he wanted to bring me somewhere with good soup and a beautiful ambience. Today he surprised me with Levain, a beautiful garden-like bakery that had a stone oven to match. The place was wonderful, and I enjoyed the entire afternoon just basking in the environment. We had 2 sessions; one full dining experience at the al fresco area, and then a high tea lounging period on the inside (with air-conditioning this time). So what's good here ?
The creamy mushroom soup (RM5.90)
Pesto shrimp & broccoli spaghetti (RM9.90)
Olive puttanesca spaghettini (RM9.90)
Turkey ham egg bun (RM3.90) - bestseller
Macha macaroon (RM3.60)
Mentaiko bun (RM4.90) - my favourite !
Creamy mushroom bun (RM4.90)
Cheese mushroom/vege/seafood pasta gratin (RM6.00 - RM6.50)
Japanese seafood/chicken/vege curry rice (RM10.00 - RM11.00)
The place is just really romantic, and the food's pretty good and reasonably priced. Be sure to check out this warm & hearty cafe. Totally worth the trip :) Do avoid lunch hours though, it'll turn out to be real packed. It's best to visit around 2pm onwards. We arrived around that time, and it was still a lil crowded then but not as hectic. Though it was impossible to try every single pastry, we did however push our limits and sampled all the delicious-looking ones. I've taken a fancy to this place! And there will definitely be more future visits.
