This is a rare discovery in Bukit Jalil as we were on the way to friends house and a few pastry shop in KL do not have the cakes that we want. Then randomly we hit into google and saw this Zhi Zhi Bakery & Cafe in Aurora Place, Bukit Jalil have amazing 5 star ratings. Decided to drop by and check them out.  Truely it is a hidden gem pastry shop in Bukit Jalil.

update: 1st April 2022 : Auntie told us they going to close end of April 30th. Sad to hear this

Since the discovery in December, till date I have return the 4th time to support their business. Its a business that needed support by locals around the area. I find it pity that they open wrong location as the couple just came back to Malaysia during pandemic period and decided to run a business. #supportlokal

zhi zhi bukit jalil

They do not have amazing store front as it is run by both retired uncle and auntie that is full with passion. Chef was a head pastry chef in 5 star hotel in Ritz Carlton, Macau before the couple decided to move back into Malaysia and operate at this place.

Uncle also share with me that he was also feature in China Newspaper for having the most classic French Croissant.

I am suprise to see what are their offering, their quality of cakes and amazingly the price tag. It is a pastry shop or cake house that is wallet friendly.

bread in bukit jalil

They have breads too. I am too also suprise that a shop run by just the elderly couple, they run the whole business by creating cakes and breads.

friand

One of the best friand. Moist, just melt in your mouth. slight burnt on the outer layer and quality butter. RM 4.50 per piece, ended up bought 6 to brought back to keep to enjoy with my coffee. They do have frozen ones then can bring back to store.

best croissant pavilion bukit jalil

This is a croissant that auntie introduce me as this is either to your liking or it. It is uncle signature Burnt Classic Croissant. Crisply flakes outside and buttery in it. I like it. This is again depends on your own taste profile.

carrot cake

first time there we bought Carrot Cake and some other cakes. Since then, directly converted into regular. Quality cakes with premium ingredient. Loving it. These cakes ranging about RM 28-RM 35. A perfect birthday selection as with RM 100 I can try 2-3 types of cakes.

another round bought back to home and slowly enjoy. Pavlova is one of the best to my own personal liking or even highly recommended. Not sweet, meringue crispy, bite and melt in your mouth. Fruits add on the slightly sweetness of natural ingredients bite that it needs.

sourdough in kl (2)

This is their specialy sourdough bread that bought back. The loaf, I cut it into 3 pieces and left 2 frozen up there. Slowly enjoy my bite of it. It is so fragrant. soft and just a slight toast with light butter on top with a cup of coffee. It is Perfecto!

This is the chef as he had been running the place very passionate. Sad to see his business is not picking which I believe due to location. I certainly wish and hope that they can continue to strive on the business as the couple share with us they have been bleeding badly for 1 year.

I hope that with more support of neighborhood people are able to keep their business to stay afloat.

This is certainly one of the place I would recommend for both cakes and bread. Their Specialty Bread Is worth to discover which is crafted by the uncle that is in their frozen fridge. Whatever you see in the storefront, or sidewall, those are all the breads that the uncle can make and they do have it in frozen., just that not good in promoting.

how to go there? If you in Pavilion Bukit Jalil, you can walk to this shop thru Parkson Lvl 1 entrance, go opposite road, up escalator, take lift down to lvl 1.

best cake in kl

They have a few flavours which is local inspired and to my surprise, my personal favourite is both their local inspired flavours.

kuke cakes

Puteri Jendol @ RM 17 indeed taste like cendol which is also one of their best seller. A cake that is soft and fluffy on both top and bottom yet a slightly dence creamy that holds the cendol on the middle. As your fork punch thru the cake, the fragrant of the cake comes out together. Top is pandan and bottom base with gula melaka base. Best it is not too sweet .

black glutinous rice

My next recommended flavour is also their one of their best seller which is also local inspired. The most interesting is this Hitam Manis @ RM 17 which is from our Chinese thong sui. “Hak Loh Mai” . It do resembles near to the dessert. Surprisingly good. IT sounds weird and looks weird at first but trust me. A bite of this will get you addicted to continue. (that is for me). As I finish both slices of Puteri Jendol and Hitam Manis myself.

Burnt Cheese Cake I find it better than many available out there also. Of course there are alot of versions on how they make and depends on what you like. I like slightly burnt outside with top and bottom is slightly hard and middle is moist. This is how they make it. The Saint @ RM 17

Honolulu @ RM 17

hartamas

Last 2, is 5 shades of chocolate @ RM 17 as some of my friends ordered this and they love it. It is really 5 layers of different chocolate with 1 layer a mix chocolate in it. It is rich yet not too dense but just nice. You have both hint creamy and bitterness from the choclate. Layered well in flavours.

Triple C @ RM 17 is like I called the unique version of carrot cake. That’s how I interpret it. a hit of cinnamon and a nice mix of bites in it.
