It is interesting to see the crowd in BAKED when we came. There are a family of 3 generations. The grandma is simply enjoying her meal, while the sister is busy prepping herself to take what I presume as Instagram video. The poor guy, the brother, is her videographer, and doesn’t really put up a happy face. Well, welcome to 2022 and Bali.
Personally, I came to BAKED for 2 things to try: Open Sandwich and Masala Chai. I have been amazed on how many variant of open sandwich breakfast that is available across the island, and still amazed with the selection of sandwich available in BAKED. Grace shared my idea, so we ordered two sandwiches: Avo and Benny.
By default AVO comes as vegan-friendly version. Thick sourdough made up the base, spread with mashed avocado and flax seeds. I added extra poached egg, which make it creamier.
Grace’s food, BENNY (Yeah, I should have trademarked my name) is very close to Egg Benedict. Instead of using typical hollandaise sauce, BENNY is served with Gochujuang Hollandaise sauce. It adds light spiciness into the whole dishes.
We shared pancake for dessert. The pancake is served with stewed strawberry jam, topped with fresh strawberry and marzipan cream. It feel fresh in mouth, after a hearty open sandwich breakfast.
My closing drink is Masala Chai, something that I have been tasting around also in Bali. BAKED’s masala chai came in quite light. I came to believe that most masala chai served in Bali is quite light compared to my taste. Probably, something to match the local preference?
Our experience in BAKED is quite good. We love the ambience of brown-white, and the general crowd. The food is not extraordinary, but carefully prepared and enjoyable. With price range of 40k to 90k rupiah, it is friendly enough for our pocket. And for those who loved pastry, they also serve freshly baked pastry for you to choose.
