[Muslim-friendly] Let Wheatcraft put a spell on you with its magical bread and luscious pastries.
Located in Mutiara Damansara, a reader recommended this artisan bakery when we were on the hunt for the best croissant in town.
We’ve tapaued pastries from this place a few times before – but we decided to check out Wheatcraft for brunch recently.
Wheatcraft in Mutiara Damansara
Opened in July 2022, Wheatcraft had been making a mark in the area by offering artisanal bread and pastries.
Working exclusively with French flour and butter, find classic bake here such as croissants, blueberry danish, cinnamon rolls, and sourdough scones.
The cafe recently rolled out its new all-day breakfast menu – offering classics such as Egg Benedict, Ham & Egg Bagel, and French Toast.
There are also unique dishes with a Mediterranean touch such as Crispy Cauliflower & Labneh, Shakshouka, and Minced Lamb with Muhammara sauce.
Grilled Cheese, please
We are fans of grilled cheese sandwiches – so we knew we had to order this when we saw it on the menu.
At Wheatcraft, the hot sandwich can be served in its original form of Edam and Memolet Cheese in between sourdough bread (RM23).
You could also order it with additional Jalapeno, Tuna, or Turkey Ham.
We enjoyed the Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Turkey Ham. The toast was nicely crisped, and not too greasy, and the cheese was nicely toasted for a nice melty texture. The addition of caramelised onion and ham added a nice sweet-savoury dimension to the dish.
Creamy Tomato Basil Soup
No grilled cheese sandwich is complete without tomato soup. And yes, the sandwich comes with it for RM25.
We enjoyed Wheatcraft’s version as it has a good tomato tartness to it, with some chopped onion bits and basil for texture and sweetness.
We’ve come across watery tomato soups at other spots – so we were pleased with this one as it was thick and creamy as well.
Crab Siamese Laksa
The Crab Siamese Laksa (RM32) sticks out as the only Asian offering on the all-day breakfast menu.
This dish features hand-caught Indonesian pasteurised crabmeat as its main protein. We liked that the broth is creamy but did wish it had a more pronounced sour and spicy taste.
While the crab meat was unique, we thought it could use more protein like prawns or chicken for a fuller meal (especially since it cost RM32). Otherwise, the use of real laksa rice noodles was nice.
Overall, we enjoyed the Grilled Cheese Sandwich and Tomato Soup here, but thought the Crab Siamese Laksa was a bit pricey.
Made with Candia French butter and T65 French flour and fermented for three days, the signature Croissant here should please any viennoiserie fan. Also, the Cinnamon Rolls were super enticing.
Also, check out the hand-built Bezzera Eagle coffee machine behind the counter – looking all resplendent and shiny.
