Exactly a year ago, both gNOMes paid a visit to Chequers for their waffles. You may read our review here. A year later, we are back again, this time, to try out their sister establishment, the bakery.
Chequers Bakery by Chequers is located also in TTDI, just one floor above Chequers. While the latter dishes out waffle based mains, the former on the other hand consists of a wide variety of pastries. One may also find sweet & savoury doughnuts here, besides the mains and desserts.
[Front : Pandan Gula Melaka [RM 5.00] ; Back : Tiramisu [RM5.00]]
A selection of sweet donuts, each one enough to feed a single gNOMe. Taking a bite into it, it turns out that this is a cake donut! The Pandan Gula Melaka had a slightly salty tinge to it, effectively making it a Malaysian salted caramel. The Tiramisu had a nice balanced taste of coffee.
[Clockwise from top : Chipotle [RM 5.00]; Shrooms [RM 5.00]; Fritata [RM 5.00]; BBQ Beef Ribs [RM 5.00]]
A spread of savoury doughnuts to choose from here at Chequers Bakery.
Chipotle – Corn tortilla & cheese doughnut with grilled chicken, crusted corn tortilla, mozzarella cheese, chipotle sauce & garlic aioli.
Shrooms – Raised spinach doughnut with portobello, oyster & button mushroom, mozzarella cheese & honey grain mustard. Suitable for vegetarians.
Fritata – Light and fluffy stacked frittata with saute spinach, capsicum, mushroom, cheddar & parmesan cheese.
BBQ Beef Ribs – Slow roasted BBQ beef ribs with homemade BBQ sauce and garlic aioli over chia seed doughnut.
gNOMe’s pick? Fritata and BBQ Beef Ribs. Yums!
Mediterranean Sandwich [RM 22.00]
Suitable for vegetarians, this is ciabatta with grilled eggplant, seasoned zucchini, portobello mushrooms, tomatoes, arugula, capsicum, feta cheese, topped with pesto mayo & roasted sesame mustard sauce.
The whole thing came together brilliantly, as the spiced bread enhanced the flavor of the ingredients, making a fresh, vegetarian sandwich.
Grilled Chicken Avocado [RM 25.00]
Three cheers to avocado! Yay, yay, yay! 😀 Cajun grilled chicken thigh, creamy avocado, turkey ham, butterhead lettuce, tomatoes and capsicum drizzled with ranch dressing & honey mustard grain paired with butter croissant.
The result is as expected: smoky and meaty, with the creamy taste of ripe avocado. The gNOMes recommend this.
Howie [RM 17.00]
Chequers Bakery’s own take to a healthy, big breakfast. Crunchy and light puff pastry with mozzarella cheese, sauteed spinach, sunny side egg, beef bacon, grilled asparagus, cherry tomatoes and hollandaise sauce.
Beef bacon, sun dried tomatoes and eggs? What more does one need to say? 😀
Verdict : This is a nice place for the health-conscious. Serving fresh food and desserts, this place deserves a try.
