Getting A Cake At San Terri Cottage, Gardens Mall

I rant about the inconvenience of having to talk in English in my commets under my post : Japan's biggest challenge. The reason for the rant is partly due to after talking in Malay in high speed, I realized the two staff manning this shop didn't understand a word I said (like that time at Paddington House of Pancake).

Apart from that, the cakes here at San Terri are absolutely divine, despite the slightly higher price for them. Their cakes are not mass produced and made fresh every day, so I'm willing to forgo a little bit of convenience like being able to speak in my own mother tounge in my own country to frequent this place.

What do they serve here? San Terri Cottage serves coffee, tea and pretty cakes that are popular in Japan and Taiwan. It does seem to cater to Japanese clientele as there was a copied Japanese language article for their "Opera" cake sitting proudly on the counter. They do take special orders too, so you can order your cakes as big as you want.

It is located inconspicuously across Cold Storage at LG in Gardens Mall, so you might miss it if you didn't look for it. Just look for the Korean stall or Sushi Zen. Of course, you may need a little bit of patience with the staff but they are nice ladies albeit a little slow.

The cake counter. I took this photo while standing at the cashier, waiting for the staff to contact her supervisor about my query on ordering a big cake and wanting it in two days' time.

This is what I got. A 3 kg of "Chesnut" cake worth RM240.00. It was yummy! The cake did look better than this photo.

The "Footy" cake that I got for *lynne* of A Malaysian Abroad whom I have yet to send the photo I took with her at Coffee Bean. Soon, I promise!

p.s I actually have trouble getting even Zaini to understand me if I talk in Malay sometimes. He said I talk like I'm a Siamese (Thai) or something. LOL


  1. Wow..I must try this one. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. The last time I was at Garden Mall, I cannot find myself a parking coz coincidencely there was a job fare on a Sunday and the crowd, my god. Then I never set foot there again. Next time must go there n check this shop and of course on a weekdays. ;P

  3. @Mei Teng,
    it's a pleasure to share info with each other. :)

    don't park at Midvalley, use Gardens car park instead, although you need to be careful not to park at the premier car park.

  4. A fine taste in art.(excuse the intended pun)

  5. For anyone with a sweet tooth, this sounds simply irresistible but it can be too expensive to indulge in.

  6. @Martin,
    I'm no good with pun but I'm handy with a pan! LOL

    @Life Ramblings,
    maybe for special occasion. :)

  7. Yup - I can attest to the deliciousness that is the Footy cake :)

    btw, I occasionally have to be mega-patient when ordering/talking to a salesperson in Malaysia, because they will stand there stunned as I place my order/ak my question, then they exclaim "Wah, boleh cakap Melayu!" ... ugh... I know lah I look like Mat Salleh, but do your job lah, kan? :p

  8. @Ayie,
    they were pretty. :)

    hahaha... but I bet you got a thank you from most cashiers because of your Mat Salleh look. I always get pissed off when the cashiers smile at the gwailo in front of me and then turn and show me a sour face pulak! Maybe I should dye my hair blond!

  9. Oh, must try this place too! Getting increasingly bored with Secret Recipe cakes! LOL!

  10. @foong,
    yala, I always bought cakes from SR too, and I think I've bought almost every cake they have on sold!

  11. I love their blueberry cheesecake - slice and baked versions. Heavenly! I have been going to the one in Hartamas Shoping Centre though.
