Chequers Cafe has just recently launch a their latest take on modern bakery, right above their current unit. Known as Chequers Bakery, the incredibly white yet cozy place has both indoors and outdoor space, great natural lighting for photos and of course, a heck of a smell from all those freshly baked goodies. 

Signature savoury doughnuts.

Top Right - Frittata
Top left - Shrooms (vegetarian)

RM5 each

We've managed to try out 4 of their signature savoury doughnuts. Starting with my favourite of them all, the BBQ Beef Ribs. Served with slow roasted beef ribs with their homemade bbq sauce and garlic aioli over a chia seed doughnut. 

What was great about it wasn't just the fact that it's something different and new, its the type of doughnut it comes with. 

Each and every one of them has a different base that suits the overall taste and texture of the doughnut. Likewise, the Frittata is made similar to a quiche, where the doughnut was done light and fluffy with eggs. 

The Chipotle was a little unique, but in a good way. It comes with a corn tortilla and cheese doughnut, topped with grilled chicken, crusted tortilla, mozzarella cheese, garlic aioli and a homemade garlic aioli. 

Last but not least, the Shrooms is a vegetarian-type doughnut with enough flavour to feed a family of 4. The spinach doughnut comes with a combination of portobello, oyster and button mushroom, topped with mozzarella cheese and finished with honey grain mustard. Flavour, flavour more flavour! 

Pandan Gula Melaka and Tiramisu - RM5 each

For their range of sweet doughnuts, we had gone for a serving of Pandan Gula Melaka and Tiramisu. Both were done really well, with a cake-type base for its doughnut and a rich, creamy and well-balanced cream encasing them. 

Personally, I loved the Pandan Gula Melaka as it possessed a nice blend of sweet, aromatic and salty flavour. After all, the gula melaka is salted to replicate the idea of salted caramel, which I find is a great take on Malaysian classics. 

The Tiramisu too was great, but I felt that it was overshadowed by the reign of the Pandan Gula Melaka. 

Grilled Chicken Avocado - RM25

Moving on to hot food, comes a delicious serving of Grilled Chicken Avocado sandwich with Croissant. Yes, customers can choose from a range of croissant, ciabatta or focaccia and filled with tender grilled, Cajun-spiced chicken thighs, creamy avocado, turkey ham, butterhead lettuce, tomatoes, and capsicum finished with ranch dressing & honey grain mustard. 

It's simple, it's rich and it's packed full of flavour. Coupled with the buttery croissant, this serving of sandwich is definitely worth going for!

Mediterranean Sandwich (Vegetarian) - RM22

For those who wants to go on a diet, yet lie to yourself about it, this is the sandwich for you. Full on vegetarian with a rich array of portobello mushrooms, grilled eggplant, seasoned zucchini, tomatoes, arugula, and capsicum, sprinkled with feta cheese over a pesto mayo and roasted sesame mustard. 

Despite its vegetarian identity, this dish truly packs in a whole lot of flavour from all the ingredients. It was also done with a herb-ish focaccia bread, which ads on even more flavour fragrance to the sandwich. 

Howie - RM17

Last but not least, we had a serving of this amazing pastry called Howie - a great breakfast alternative for those who are lazy. Flaky puff pastry filled with mozzarella cheese, sauteed spinach, sunny side egg, beef bacon, asparagus, cherry tomatoes and hollandaise sauce. 

The flavours were relatively light but well seasoned, where the dish wouldn't make you 'jelak' after a couple of bites. Another tip, the best way of eating it is to break the yolk first, allowing it to flow and cover a good amount of surface area, before using your hands and eating it like a slice of pizza. Ditch the fork and knife and enjoy this with your bare hands! 

There is a toilet nearby, so no worries on washing your hands afterwards. 

In conclusion, Chequers Bakery is definitely a new hotspot for your daily dose of buttery goodness. Everything we had that involves baking and whatnot, was done to absolute perfection. Croissant was flaky and buttery, doughnut had their unique sense of identity, flavour and texture, focaccia that was both fragrant and delicious and of course, their choice and combination of ingredients as well. 

So if you're looking for somewhere to sit down, relax and enjoy a good set of pastries, cakes or sandwich along with some coffee, then Chequers Bakery is definitely the place to be.
