Here’s my visit to the highly raved lavish bakery and café for dinner, Levain Boulangerie Patisserie. This is my first visit although my house is just around the corner. It’s location is pretty secluded and I give this a go since one of my peeps is treating.
Upon entering, I love the smell of butter from the bakery section. The aroma just makes the entire place felt so cozy. There are two sections where you could hang around. indoor and outdoor.
Behind at the outdoor section, there is where you can get to watch how they make their pizza fresh from oven.
They are very well-known for their pastries coming from the stone oven.
As vintage as it is, I was amazed to see the classic coffee grinder mounted on the wall and it is still functioning.
Here’s the wholesome menu, they serve from breakfast to dinner. Oh, there’s Japanese curry rice too.
As I said earlier to witness their freshly made pizza, of course they have pizza in the menu too.
I drooled over the desserts that they have. GAH~ nevermind, let’s see what are the dishes that I tried. The waiter who served us doesn’t seem to be friendly, he doesn’t smile nor naming the dish when he brought it over. We messed up with some of the dishes, luckily all of us are fine with sharing.
Dish #1: Creamy Mushroom Chicken Soup
I love the presentation, a sprinkle of herbs over the mushroom just give more color to the soup. However, I prefer it to be richer in terms of it’s texture and flavor. It was just lacking of wee bit taste.
Price: MYR 5.40
Dish # 2: Spicy Seafood Tomato Soup
This is great for starter as the flavor is just right and appetizing. It has fresh clams in the soup and the sourness from the tomato is not too extreme. It wasn’t too spicy, I could taste a very mild one.
Price: MYR 7.50
Dish #3: Creamy Mentaiko and Seafood Spaghetti
You can’t really see any mentaiko (marinated fish egg) but I do taste a bit. I would prefer it to be a little more saucy because it was pretty dry. I think there is squid, not much choice of seafood in the dish.
Price: MYR 15.90
Dish #4: Seafood Aglio Oglio Spaghetti
This has more seafood from the previous dish I reckon and it tasted like stir-fry spaghetti! It tasted special, a mix of western and eastern style to it. This is recommended.
Price: MYR 12.90
It somehow tasted like spaghetti bolognese but with cabbage and so much less sauce. I like this too, it isn’t too bad in fact. Again, I prefer it to me more saucy.
Price: MYR 12.90
All the above dishes aren’t mine, I just tasted by taking a mouth or two. My dish did not come that night and it was weird because when our orders have been taken, the staff repeated with my dish in it. I waited for quite a bit after all the above dishes came. My Lover with one of my peeps went to check it for me and the staff just said that they can’t do anything as the kitchen has already closed (it was already 9pm).
I want to love this place despite all the positive reviews but I left this place with huge disappointment. Not only my dish did not come, there wasn’t any apology, no actions taken and I left the place starving that I had to look for another place for food later that night. I don’t think I’ll be visiting anytime soon.
