The Loaf is universally known to be owned by our very famous ex-Prime Minister and also for its pricey premium breads and pastries, however, unless you always dine in expensive restaurants, much less is known about the food they have in their restaurant. The prices of the food is of higher end, something you should already expect when all their branches are opened at areas such as KL Pavilion.
I have the honour of knowing someone who used to work at The Loaf so I was brought to their KL Pavilion's branch to have a taste of their premium food.
For starter, we began with the Mushroom Soup. As expected from a premium restaurant, the quality of this soup is undeniably good. The texture is thick and you could feel the mushrooms in it. I love the taste, it's not too salty nor buttery, just smooth, nice and rich with mushroom flavours. The bread that comes together on the other hand, is nothing special or unique to shout about; would have preferred to go with Garlic Bread instead for my own preference.
Mushroom Soup, RM18
Next up, my friend introduced me to one of the best item in their Main Course Menu - the Peppercorn Salmon. Certainly, the ingredient is as fresh as it could get. And I love how the fish is not overly cooked thus leaving it soft and juicily good. As the name implies, the fish is grilled with pepper. What makes this dish interesting is of course the sauce, I couldn't make out what it is but it tastes like a mixture of Teriyaki & pepper together. There were white radish and some hams to compliment the salmon.
Peppercorn Salmon RM38
Lemon Juice - cooling and refreshing, totally quenched my thirst but nothing to shout about.
Lemon Juice RM8
The Loaf Cube -60 Celsius is a very interesting creation. You will be served an empty cup with black coffee iced cubes with another pot of hot milk and syrup. To enjoy this drink, just pour the milk over the iced cubes and let the coffee cubes melt.
Apparently this signature drink comprises of a glass of espresso ice cubes frozen to -60C to preserve the coffee flavour in a special freezer imported overseas.
The taste seems good but personally I find the coffee is strong. So if you are espresso lover, you might just love this twist.

Overall, I am pretty satisfied with the food quality and the service The Loaf @ Kuala Lumpur, Pavilion. If you are looking for a premium place and ready to pay for the prices, I would recommend you this place. Yes, be prepared to pay for the prices. =)
