There’s nothing quite like New York City, when you open your window in the morning to get some fresh air you can hear breakfast vendors setting up stall. The creaking sounds of the push-cart wheels making their way to a corner to set up a morning breakfast cart. The aroma of fresh coffee and scrambled eggs take over.
Ready to face the bright day ahead you walk into the city that never sleeps, stop at the corner to order a coffee and bagel with cream cheese to go. A breakfast staple for Americans, lucky for us bagels have made their way to Kuala Lumpur. There’s no other place to enjoy a good bagel then from our neighbourhood American Baker Michael.
My Sunshine Bakery was set up by a husband and wife team in the heart of Hartamas. Michael and his Malaysian wife moved to KL in 2014, the couple was operating a restaurant before the pandemic forced them to shut their doors. Michael developed a newfound hobby making sourdough starters and that led him to bake his sourdough loaves.
His bread was a hit among family, friends and neighbours. With devoted local support, The Sunshine Bakery was born. The home-based kitchen has since expanded its menu, offering bagel chips, bagels, granolas, schmears and spreads on their menu.
Here’s a snapshot of their menu
