Sourdough bread and fermented products in Uptown

I had been to the Silicon Valley 5 times at the invitation of Google with fully sponsored trips. I had asked my schoolmates to recommend restaurants and one recommendations was Boudin Sourdough Bakery and Cafe. I tried their sourdough bread and clam chowder during one of the visits and it was nothing exceptional

Now we don't have to travel that for for sourdough bread. We can get sourdough bread and other fermented products at Yin's Sourdough Bakery and Cafe along Jalan SS21/37 in Damansara Uptown.

I used to make kefir, a fermented drink, at home for my family but has stopped because it is labor intensive plus we cannot stop for lengthy period. We have to continue fermenting otherwise our kefir grains may die.

But now I can get both at Yin's Sourdough Bakery and Cafe
