I noticed this place when I first came to Viva Home, when they were still advertising about this new mall in Jalan Loke Yew. I caught eye of this shop that reminds me one of my favourites, toast bread. Then, I came across a coupon that was selling for a pretty cheap deal to eat at this Bread & Butter.
But today, after eating there once, I would not go back and try again. It was just for an experience that I wanted to try this shop since they were selling toast bread.
Sadly, the place was quiet and there was only one worker to serve us. Though they have nice concept and signage but the sight of seeing nobody at the shop was rather discouraging for me...
Next, a glance at the menu and you would find that as expected, toasted bread with kaya (coconut custard, they call it) was their specialty. That was sure pretty obvious, any shop that starts with "bread" or "toast" would usually have the classic toasted bread as their specialty. So these was no less as well. With various topping ranging from kaya to condensed milk as topping, there quite an amount of choice to choose from, though from the menu board on the wall, the types of drinks seem to take more space than their specialty, sad.
However, looking at the price, I was surprised, because for a toast bread eating person like me, where toast bread with kaya and thick-sliced butter would only cost about RM1.80-2.00 this was considered expensive, and their drinks, was usual shopping mall prices.
So, I ordered the toast bread with cookies, while my sis ordered another with kaya. They had single layer and double layer to choose from, we took the single layer one.
To be honest, when it arrived, it was a bit disappointing to see that what I've ordered was just a piece of Hainan bread toasted crispy with kaya and cookies. It really didn't stimulated any appetite in me nor did my sis too. The taste was average, like any toast bread. The kaya was rather starchy and lack the fragrance of coconut and brown sugar while the bread with cookies was too dry to ingest. If it were combo with something a bit wet like chocolate, then maybe it would have went better. But then, it didn't.
We ordered drinks as it was part of the deal that we bought. So we ordered iced chocolate, raspberry and hazelnut. It tasted like diluted chocolate drink. Well, can't expect much from a shop that sells bread.
Overall, we both had a rather bad experience. It really was unexpected from a shop that looked so nicely furnished and thought off, such a waste.
