The rise of sourdough bread is cause for cheer, especially for customers who love crusty bread with a memorable tang. Here are 10 restaurants and cafes that are baking up a (sourdough) storm and making versatile use of the bread.
1. Table & Apron at Damansara Kim
Get your sourdough fix satisfied here: Table & Apron’s chef-d’oeuvre is bread at its most satisfying, the crackling crust complemented by a tender, tasty crumb, a terrific pairing for many of this restaurant’s soulful recipes.
Address: 23, Jalan SS20/11, Damansara Kim, 47400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

2. Kenny Hills Bakers at Bukit Tunku
Try the sourdough pizzas, hand-tossed by a passionately meticulous team, relying on natural unbleached flour, cooked at precise temperatures for a thick, classically charred and crusty but supple base to delight devotees of fresh bread. Warm and fresh from the oven, with a lovely, preservative-free flavour, in varieties like the Margherita (with buffalo mozzarella, oregano and basil), The Sicilian (anchovies and mozzarella on spicy tomato sauce), Three Cheese (gruyere, blue cheese and mozzarella) and Al Funghi (portobello, button and oyster mushrooms with truffle oil).
Address: I-1B, Taman Tunku, Off Langgak Tunku, Bukit Tunku, 50480 Kuala Lumpur.

3. Li at Damansara Jaya
Li’s house-made sourdough bread is turned into crunchy-fried, irresistibly greasy-bottomed open sandwiches layered with tender minced pork, sesame seeds, sriracha mayo and cilantro – not our granddaddy’s Yut Kee roti babi, but distinctively memorable and enjoyable enough to be a Li signature.
Address: 47 Jalan SS 22/23, Damansara Jaya, Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

4. Redemption Espresso Bar at Plaza Damas
Redemption Espresso Bar sources its beautiful organic sourdough bagels from Taman Tun Dr Ismail’s home bakers The Bread Fox, serving them warm, compellingly crisp and fresh, richly slathered with a choice of punchy kitchen-blended pesto or locally sourced fig jam.

Ante’s Big Breakfast is constructed with impressive ingredients that complement each other immensely well – immaculately cooked eggs, hickory-smoked bacon, the chubbiest bratwurst, a trio of shimeiji, button and oyster mushrooms, creamy-fresh guacamole, and of course, sourdough toast that’s many levels above run-of-the-mill sliced bread.
