The Bakery at Marks & Spencer KLCC: Restaurant Review
Waistline-wrecking temptations to be found at KLCC’s Marks & Spencer, where an in-house bakery opened this month, serving a sweeping, scrumptious selection.
Everything from Bramley apple turnovers to peach-and-cream tarts; resistance truly is futile.
Our indisputable favorites here: The sweet stuff, including this buttery, sugar-topped Eccles cake with a potently fruity currant filling.
Almond croissant and choc chip shortbread. Caveat: We’ve purchased these pastries at various hours over the past two weeks, learning eventually that they taste terrific when bought at 11am, but the stock that’s left at night (with a 50 percent discount) has clearly faded in freshness.
M&S Food Hall
The Bakery is inside Marks & Spencer’s food hall, where other pleasant surprises await: this intriguing bag of crisps is emblazoned with the words “Honey Roast Wiltshire Ham” and a non-halal sticker. The ingredients list shows no pork, but the crisps do have something of a hammy taste.
