A promising entry into Mont Kiara, serving an array of German, French & Italian bread.
We have trouble pronouncing Cafe Berlin's offerings (vollkornbrot? schwartzbrot?), but even if words won't roll off our tongues, flavors can be relished by our taste buds.
Cafe Berlin supplies everything from simple Vesper mixed wheat bread ...
... to loaves loaded with grainy goodness, great enough to eat on their own.
Dense & heavy with seeds & nuts, making a RM20 ten-slice loaf worth the premium.
Also available: wheat-rye kruestchen & stollen fruitcake (even if it's not Christmas).
Bonus stop: A short drive from Mont Kiara Mall, Swich has opened its dine-in outlet at Publika.
It's a treasure trove of Swich's greatest hits, finally available seven days a week, from irresistible guilty pleasures like butter soft-shell-crab pasta with salted egg yolk ...
... to conscience-appeasing creations like a walnut, fig & pear salad that's vivid with flavors.
The menu at Publika's Swich is only slightly less extensive than the HP Towers outlet's; the cornucopia of comfort food spans pizzas sold by the slice to chunky chicken rendang burgers creamily coated in peanut sauce.
And of course, Swich's now-famed cakes are available too (from time to time, fortunate customers might find Swich founder Cheng Cheng's masterful mangosteen cake up for grabs). The cafe is located on G3, the level above MPH.
