Rainforest Bakery & Pastry

I was first introduced by my manager whom patronized this bakery shop. She got to know from her lunch buddies that this place was featured in the Sunday Star. And it runs by 2 identical twin brothers, Jesse and Jerry Tan.

Then after she handed me their business card, and asked me to check it out. She told me that this is a Home Made Bakery Shop also an organic bakery, and the only place where she could find Bagel too.

When we were in Chulia Street in one of the weekend, we drove up and down to look for this shop. Didn’t realize it was just in between Chulia Lane and Love Lane. Without much hesitation we hopped into the shop and bought about RM29 worth of breads.

We also have something light like Toast Bread and a glass of orange juice.

This isn’t like any other bread shop like Bread History but I believe this is some place where back packer will appreciate. Beside, from the menu that they handed to me, I could see there are many variety of food line from spaghetti, fish and chips to our local delight like nasi lemak.

This is absolutely a thumb up bakery shop if you’re a bread lover!

Thanks for the recommendation. I used to fancy "Continental" Bread behind Penang Plaza. It is good as well. Their nasi lemak and spagetti also good.

Yes, I agree - this is one of the best bakeries, if not THE best, in Penang hands down. And we've gone the full circle, from Continental to the bakery at Sarkies E&O (discount after 8PM), but nothing quite beats the loaves here. The banana cake is magnificent!

I get some of my supply of bread from Rainforest and I usually go for the dark rye and at times the vollkron bread. The banana cake makes a good afternoon teatime snack.

Best to keep the bread in the freezer. Both goes well with butter and jam.
