Today I stumbled upon a nice, neat little cosy café in Taman Perling called Daily Grain Bakery 每日五谷 J. I always love a little nuttiness in my food and so it was little wonder that I fell in love with Daily Grain Bakery's signature multigrain toast at first bite J.
I also liked Daily Grain's brewed coffee. Aromatic coffee and crunchy, tasty toast - just the perfect pair for the simple, blissful breakfast that would make my day.
Daily Grain's kaya and butter toast made with their own multigrain toast is a lovely blend of salty and sweet with the tender crunchiness of seeds, nuts and raisins.
In goes the dough.
Out comes the hot multigrain toast.
Daily Grain's multigrain toast freshly baked right there at the bakery is choked full of various kinds of seeds and nuts such as flax seeds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds.
The delicately sweet and nutty slices of toast were enhanced by Daily Grain's fragrant homemade kaya and smooth melted butter.
When I first dipped my teaspoon into Daily Grain's coffee, I was initially a little disappointed. In JB, I am used to thick dark kopitiam coffee and so the light, clear coffee was something unexpected. Then the distinct coffee aroma made its presence felt, followed by the robust arabica flavour on the lips and taste buds with the first sip. Aww... this is just the perfect blend of coffee to go with Daily Grain's multigrain toast.
The boss MR Lau must have put in a lot of thought and effort to find such a good match between his breads and coffee. Indeed, MR Lau shared with me that his philosophy is "Life is too short to have bad coffee".
Besides the multigrain toast, we had a sumptuous spread of other breads and croissants because my friend wanted to try a little of everything....

Staple garlic toast.

Daily Grain Bakery is now on my list of favourite breakfast joints. Hmm.. who says yummy breakfasts cannot be healthy...
I love Daily Grain Bakery's multigrain toast so much that I am making it a point to take home a loaf of the nutty sweet bread whenever I am in the area J. Each loaf costs RM7.80, which is reasonable considering the amount of nuts and seeds used, and sans all the preservatives and chemicals.
I'll be back to try other items on Daily Grain's menu and also their famous all natural banana cake.
