Wheatz & Grainz @ Taman Tun

Fanz of carbz can have a field day at Wheatz & Grainz, Taman Tun's latest bakery-cafe.

Spotlessly sunny & spacious, fresh-looking & family-friendly, this is a welcome entry to the row renowned for watering holes like Sid's, Hoofed & East 42.

Quality reigns over quantity; the bread selection is smaller than expected, but it comprises the likes of loaves mixed with U.S. potatoes, roasted garlic & rosemary, plus healthy choices made with rye, whole wheat, red millet & walnuts.

Hot treats are available too, like juicy quiches, jam-packed with veggies & chicken purchased from Encik Salleh at the TTDI market.

Toasties (RM5.90), topped temptingly with cheese, tomatoes & house-made pesto sauce. Breakfast includes free-range boiled eggs with bread & Lescure butter.

Cranberry biscotti, fruit tarts, choc chip cookies, choc-beetroot brownies, for the sweet tooth.

Cakes include blueberry ones, as well as banana, carrot & cappuccino varieties.

Wheatz & Grainz, opened this month by three female friends, prides itself on nutritious products, eschewing preservatives.

Coffee is on the menu, naturally, as are orange, apple & carrot juices.

Wheatz & Grainz @ TTDI Rahim Kajai,
46, Lorong Rahim Kajai 14, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur.
Tel: 03-7732-7981
Open Tues-Sun, 8:30am-7pm

  1. Hi Sean,

    I loved the tiled walls here. The toasties sound fabulous, the coffee looks great, the juices sound delicious. The bread selection may be limited, but what they do have sounds and looks wonderful!

    1. Peoniesandpancakes: oh the coffee is satisfactory and well-prepared enough but not outstanding, heh. Which is ok =) and i think the bread and pastry items here are a bit more unique and memorable compared to the cakes. So yeah, the savories and loaves here work better for me :D

  7. Now I can never resist the prospect of bread...worth seeking out?

    1. Youhadyourlunch: pretty decently made bread. I'd say definitely worth checking out if you're already in the neighborhood, but probably not quite worth an extra effort all on its own =)

    1. Melissa: oh yeah, very well-stuffed quiche :D oooh, heh, yeah, i think they focus on the bread, cakes and pastries here, so they probably currently don't have a barista who does coffee art =)

  11. I can tell you that honestly, this place has the best sandwhiches I've ever had in Malaysia. The garlic chicken is to die for. The chocolate beetroot brownies are also amazing and not too sweet.
