Tommy Le Baker @ Viva Residency, Jalan Ipoh

25,933 views

Located inside a shop lot behind Viva Residency; Tommy Le Baker is a hidden gem of a great taste experience. Having live in France for over a decade, Tommy returned home and started his own pastry venture here. I was there on a rainy evening and chatted with Tommy about the place. Desserts are taken very seriously in French culture, Tommy said. He also deters mass-producing desserts with artificial colouring and flavouring. Hence, Tommy’s creation are 100% au natural with no preservatives or sugar added. He is also a traditionalist, with emphasis on craftsmanship in bread making.

When I ate that sourdough bread I could taste his passion for his product, and the heart and soul that turned mere dough into a masterpiece. My only gripe was the limited choices available – sourdough country bread, wholemeal bread, normand bread, grains and cereal bread, traditional French baguette, croissants, quiches and the occassional sweet offerings. I was told to come back towards the end of December as his apprentice is coming back to join Tommy.

I can’t wait!

Tommy Le Baker,
Viva Residency, Jalan Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur.

    I stay in kampung kasipillay, saw this bakery shop also. Hmm, but try this weekend.
    Anyway, near to this place, 河边关帝公庙 got a nice place also, people come here for the 米粉清汤, but I highly recommend people the 清汤生面, I would say it’s another Gem in Jalan Ipoh also. Perhaps, you can have a try there.

    The bread was relatively pricey, the bread and pastry are good compared to what we normally get but that comes with a hefty price. Not to mention the shop owner was really stuck up and the services was really bad.
