Kenny Hills Bakers: great pies, breads, croissants & pizzas!

Kenny Hills Bakers has been my to-go-to croissant place since I first stepped in back in August 2015.

If my memory haven’t fail me, I had the egg flamenco on the same trip but felt that the portion was too small for the price.
On another trip my god brother and I had the croissant again as well as their chia seed pudding which was notably good.

All in all, my experience here were positive and I’ve revisited often since then. It is one of the venues that I’ll recommend for quick meetings and we would usually order a cake or 2 to go with our coffee.

BELOW: Tiramisu (non-alcohol) – RM15 and Hot Chocolate (RM13).

There is another an alcoholic version as well but it was sold out that day so I opted for this.
I love the nutty crust though on the whole it was a bit sweet for me.

Affogato (RM12).

But if you were to ask me what I’ll personally recommend here, my first choice would be the peach and banana crumble!

My first experience with this amazing pie was at Social Publika.

I have no idea how I came about it, and why I would be ordering this at Social but it has to do with meeting Pei Shyen (who works at Social/El Meson, etc) and falling in love with this at first bite.

I love the Pavlova too. It was tall with a layers of meringue and snowy cream within.
Generously loaded with berries and fresh kiwis, it wasn’t overly sweet and was the only good Pavlova in KL.

In fact, I blogged about it here, together with another cafe that serves really good cakes but unfortunately had closed down since.

Just last month, I discovered that these pies were supplied to The Social by Kenny Hills Bakers!
The discovery was quite by accident, as I remarked that the Apple Pie served here looked as good as the Peach and Banana one I’ve had at Social.

I was told then that they are actually the same and the cafe rotates the pies between apple, peach and banana crumble and the apple and cherry versions.

BELOW: Apple Pie – RM15. Add a scoop of housemade vanilla ice cream for RM4.

I love the apple pie.

It is seriously one of the best (commercially available) ones in KL – low on the sweetness scale, buttery crust and chunky apples that weren’t overly spiced with cinnamon nor swimming in syrup.
It is rustic, satisfying and an absolutely steal at RM15.

The current prices for a slice of cake in cafes are in the RM14 – RM18 range and that’s for common bakes like Red Velvet, brownies, and carrot cakes which are more often than not, size of a small wedge and tasted rather generic.

Personally, I find the items at Kenny Hills offers better value for my money.

Here is their Peach and Banana Crumble – RM12 on its own, RM16 with added vanilla ice cream.
It is my default order if it is available during any of my visits.

Besides pies, their display rack of fresh bakes entices with luscious pastries, tarts and yes, cakes that are likewise rustic and big including uncommon ones like caneles.
There are also quite a number of artisanal bread, bagels as well as savoury pies.

Kenny Hills Bakers uses stone milled flour and organic ingredients for their breads and pastries.

Truly artisanal, the bakery is testament to the owners’ philosophy of running a F & B business – providing fresh, unpretentious good food (and coffee) with quality produce made with passion and sincerity.

This bakery has limited seating inside and I would usually opt for the outdoors under the fans. However, it can get pretty warm but on good days, it was wonderfully peaceful to be sitting outside and just chill with my writing.

UPDATE:
More visits to try the pizzas, roast beef sandwich, Beef Cheek Pie, Chicken Avocado Croissant!

The pizzas here have a lovely charred crust with generous topping of cheese. I love the tomato base – so fresh and robust in flavour!

RM43 for half and half.
For me, the combo of Hawaiian Chicken and Beef Pepperoni works much better than 3 Cheeses & Al Funghi.

The Mushroom Tart is recommended as well – super tasty, generously loaded with a few types of mushrooms with pleasant, earthy mushroom fragrance.

Rib Eye Roast Beef (RM24).
This is one of my favourite items here for a savoury meal. I love roast beef and I love caramelized onions!

Grilled Chicken Avocado Croissant (RM19). Beef Cheeks Pie.
Both were great!
