Pouf Bake, Alam Damai
November 19, 2023
Poof! Alam Damai’s new Pouf bake has appeared seemingly out of nowhere, bringing cheer to Cheras’ fans of pastries, doughnuts and caffeine.
Pouf serves crave-worthy viennoiseries - the pain suisse, ridged and rich with melted chocolate and custard, and pomme puree tart, centred with savoury mashed potatoes, are worth a weekend indulgence, confidently crackly, buttery and brittle to the bite.
Friendly founders Nicole and Daniel formerly ran a doughnut delivery service, so Pouf’s doughnuts are a delight too - try the generously matcha-glazed doughnut topped with a dollop of adzuki bean paste for a tasty treat, not sugary or cloying at all.
The cafe is calm and comforting in the morning, with Bing Crosby’s Too Marvellous For Words playing on the speakers.
Fun fact: Pouf’s name is a play on proofing, a step in the baking process that Pouf’s founders initially faced problems with.
180, Jln Damai Raya 2, Alam Damai, 56000 Cheras, Kuala Lumpur.
