The Maple Food Market has returned and it’s now happening in Great Eastern Mall until this Sunday from 11am – 8pm. Dozens of artisan food producers are participating in this food bazaar that promises a fun and delicious time. Besides the familiar faces, there are also a couple of new talents showcasing their finest creations – snacks, cakes, cookies and even pizza!
Lets take a quick round through the participating vendors starting with the newcomers. Nisa Bakri‘s ready-to-cook curry pastes are made for the home cook who has little time to prepare the sauces from scratch. Both her Fish Curry Hydramawt and Asam Pedas sauces are made with natural ingredients and come with cooking instructions.
Talent Lounge is a collaborative space where ideas and good food gather and come to life. Drop by for more information if you need a cafe lounge dedicated for talent development.
Cocoraw‘s chocolates are produced in small batches using quality cocoa solids and fresh dairy without any preservatives and artificial flavorings. They are also made to order to ensure their freshness is guaranteed. Besides chocolates, dehydrated fruits and cookies are also available at their booth.
The 3-layer TEAlightful Victoria Sandwich is Apron Fools‘ signature product. It’s infused with Earl Grey Tea and filled with strawberry and blueberry filling on different layers. The cake is then frosted with cream cheese frosting and topped with fresh berries. That sounds incredibe alright.
6th Street Desserts hail from Shah Alam and their focus is to make all the best tasting pastries, cakes, cookies and etc while keeping the sugar level as low as possible. They also do desserts for various events such as wedding, engagement party, baby shower and birthday. Delivery is available too!
Mutiara Figs Garden could very well be the most interesting vendor in the market. Their homemade products include fig tea, caramelized figs, sambal bilis fig and even facial soaps! What’s more impressive is that they even have a fig farm in which they harvest the fruits to make their products.
Pizza lovers should definitely check out Craft Pizza which is also a tenant in the mall. Their freshly baked pizzas are a hit with the visitors not only because they look absolutely delish, but also due to their affordability. A 12-inch slice pizza is only RM4.90 and it comes with a free drink too.
And now back to the veterans of the food market. Jaja’s Bakery makes great cakes, quiche, cookies and macarons. They even made some Pokemon shaped macarons, gotta catch em’ all! simply irresistable for kids.
Gula Cakery‘s best sellers include their mango cheesecake, peanut butter chocolate pie, salted caramel cake and not to forget choux pastry (those cute looking doughnuts).
Be sure to stock up your supply of honey from The Honey Hearts. They also recently opened a cafe in PJ serving great comfort food and iced wild jungle honey drinks. Words have it that their pancakes are awesome as well.
