#BUROSupportsLocal: Your alternative bread supply this Ramadan
With Gardenia bread being sold out almost everywhere, many turn to their dusty cookbooks and social media for the ultimate bread fixes. After all, home baking these days comes with far less waiting time, skill and, equipment.
However not all of us are boulangeries and up for very tedious kneading and folding. We are entering the sacred month of Ramadan, which means that a taste test is just out of the question. Plus you will feel a tad bit lazy as your hydration level is not at its optimum.
Give your oven (and yourselves) a rest—why not have a loaf of bread delivered to you instead? You can do your part to support local businesses too while you are at it.
Here are some places with fresh-from-the-oven goodies:
Kenny Hills Baker
Kenny Hills Baker bakes their organic bread freshly every morning. You can also order your favourite pastries and cakes (options may be limited during MCO so it's best to check on the updated menu on their socials). You can opt to order online two days in advance, contact via Instagram or calling in for same-day delivery.
Delivery is available from all three outlets: Ampang, Desa Park City and Bukit Tunku.
