If you get a good sense of comfort and satisfaction by munching down a crispy, flaky piece of pastry, you should put Le Bread Days on your watch list. Having established in Petaling Jaya a few years back, the brand has received overwhelming responses... particularly from its signature Molted Salted Egg Croissant. Fast forward today, the brand has expanded its business operations up north... to Penang. The Penang outlet can be found at Beach Street... a stone's throw distance away from the famous mural paint at Armenian Street. Like the PJ outlet, the Penang branch serves an array of artisanal bread and pastries... particularly Croissant and Danish. Not everything's great but if you are a fan of these pastries, you should check it out.
No mains are offered at Le Bread Days, only bread, pastries and some cakes. We had one piece of their Le Ferrero Rocher Croissant but to our disappointment, it was as flaky as we would have hoped. It would be better if they could heat it up... flavor-wise, nothing out of the ordinary (not overly buttery). The Chocolate filling was alright though. Another pastry we had was the Red Bean and Butter Danish... the Danish pastry was hard in texture, way harder than expected. But the Red Bean filling was beautifully done- not too sweet; though the Red Bean with Butter combo felt like an acquired taste. The Swiss Roll on the other hand, was probably our best order. The Yam cream and filling were delicious, almost like the real thing, so flavorful and yam-my; the outer cake was soft and the whole thing was beyond amazing.
