Best Croissants in KL

Written by Updated ago

Whenever one mentions France, another will almost always be reminded of croissants. While croissants resemble France to many, the pastry is actually an invention of a kipferl which originated from Austria. The croissant is a French adaptation of the kipferl and has its roots dated back to the early 19th century in Paris by an Austrian baker. Croissants come in various shapes that hold different meanings. In France, there is a law as to how croissants are made to shape depending on its ingredients. If it’s not already obvious enough, the croissant is the pride of France besides the Eiffel tower. While some of us have been fortunate enough to taste the original French croissants, the rest of us are still dreaming about it. However, fret not KL-ites as we have sourced the best croissants in Kuala Lumpur that won’t require us a flight ticket and at least hundreds of Euros.

    As most of you might've already guessed, Bread Lounge is a place for pastry and bakeries. In that, they too have several delicious variants of croissants that many might not even think of doing. Apart from the standard layered and flaky croissant, Bread Lounge also offer a turkey roll croissant and a sausage chorizo croissant, both of which are absolutely delicious. Giving that added depth of flavour and savoury finish - lovely!

    This boulangerie/bistro/bar created a sandstorm in the Malaysian food scene almost immediately when it first opened in year 2012. Its credibility is proven legitimate with its amazing array of French pastries and continuous queues for them. Besides the boulangerie, Yeast also has an open-kitchen concept in the small space – allowing patrons to watch magic unfold in the form of delicious French dishes for brunch, lunch and dinner. Yeast has made such remarkable success that they have opened a bigger branch in Mid Valley as well as an Italian sister-restaurant, Fatto A Mano, right next to the original branch in Bangsar Telawi. Yeast also serves readymade croissant sandwiches such as with turkey ham & gruyere cheese, for a more filling alternative.
    Tips

    If the place gets too packed, head onto Fatto A Mano and ask for Yeast’s menu.

    Things to expect

    Flakiness, crispness and utter deliciousnes.

    Our Daily BreadPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    This bakery first opened in October 2011 with a promise to provide freshly baked bread and pastry every single day. While Kuala Lumpur has its fair share of reliable bakeries, Our Daily Bread stands out even more with its beautifully crafted end-linked croissants. The croissants here are not only buttery and soft but fresh and affordable too. While the bakery is more known for its difficult-to-find-in-Malaysia whoopie pies and traditional Nyonya pineapple tarts, it is evident that the bakery takes baking very seriously.
    Tips

    Come during tea time for special tea promotions!

    Things to expect

    As everything is homebaked daily, there is less variety and thus, don’t expect too much.

    This bakery cum bistro first attracted the attention of many from its founder, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamed who simply wanted to have good Japanese bread in Malaysia. Thus, The Loaf was born as a Japanese-inspired bakery to cater to fellow Malaysians. By utilizing traditional Japanese techniques, most of The Loaf’s offerings are Japanese recipes. Over time, the bakery began instilling Malaysian tastes into its Japanese-styled bread as well such as the Rendang Chicken oyaki. While the bakery has Asian roots, the croissants here are still brilliantly baked with the finest quality and chemical-free ingredients.
    Tips

    Hearty hot meals are also available here.

    Things to expect

    Pastries, pastries and more pastries!

    B-Lab is a bar, bistro and bakery founded by Grand Chef Yukichi Matsubara whom used to be behind The Loaf. Unlike the roots of Matsubara and The Loaf which is Japanese inspired, B-Lab’s bakery is ironically more European-inspired. B-Lab also serves Japanese cakes as Chef Shigeru Hashizume is in charge of pastries while Chef Fun is the bakery chef. While the place is not even one year old yet, it holds a bunch of exciting promises for us as Iron Chef Matsubara spices up the bakery and cakes to ensure continuous inventions.
    Tips

    Croissant-based breakfasts are available from 7AM-11:30AM.

    Things to expect

    Being spoilt for choice.

    Another venture of The B.I.G. Group, B’wiched is a quaint café that serves quirky-named hot sandwiches such as Tuna Turner, Christina Arugula and Shia Le Beef. On top of that, B’wiched also has a long counter of baked goods such as baguettes, brioches, scones, danishes and of course, croissants. At first sight, the long array of selections may cause you double visions but upon setting eyes on their croissants, you will definitely be enlightened at how fluffy, fat and beautifully glazed these croissants are which will surely make your mouth water in gluttony.
    Tips

    Chez LeonielPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Chez Leoniel is what we would consider a hidden gem. Located deep within the fortress of Alliance Francaise KL, Chez Leoniel is a French bakery and cafe, offering fresh pastries, cakes and of course, French cuisine. And like all French bakery, a croissant is a must. Chez Leoniel's version was done beautifully with rich French butter, layered and baked to crispy perfection. It was flaky, soft and full of buttery goodness! Definitely worth the try!
    Tips

    Croissant DelicatessenPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    At Croissant Delicatessen, there are a number of main course croissant dishes you can choose from, one of them being the Garlic and Basil Chicken Croissant. One thing that becomes very apparent in this dish is how much greenery is in this dish. It comes off as a pleasant surprise since most croissants do not look like this. The reason for this is the sheer generous amount of basil that is in this croissant, which already indicates a meal packed with flavour before the first bite is even taken. Once you do take a bite, it tastes much better than it looks as you will now detect hints of garlic, which couple well with the tender, juicy chicken and the fresh, earthy basil base. This is one croissant you do not want to miss out on.

    Tips

    Have a knife ready to cut it in half if sharing is in order.

    Things to expect

    Lunch sets and student discounts are available.

    Best with

    A glass of water will greatly help to cleanse the palette.
