麥典坊手感烘焙 Wheatie Bakery

午後獨自出外取回已維修好的手提電腦。一切安頓好後,步行到天后,準備乘搭巴士回家。在英皇道與留仙街口見到一間頗雅緻的麵包店 – 麥典坊手感烘焙。

I went out after lunch to pick up my notebook computer from the repair shop. When everything was settled, I walked to Tin Hau and prepared to go home by bus. Right at the junction between King’s Road and Lau Sin Street, an elegant bakery caught my attention – Wheatie Bakery.

午後獨自出外取回已維修好的手提電腦。一切安頓好後,步行到天后,準備乘搭巴士回家。在英皇道與留仙街口見到一間頗雅緻的麵包店 – 麥典坊手感烘焙

綠色的門面配上大塊玻璃,可淸楚看到店內兩邊放滿麵包的木架,而收銀機枱後面便是用大玻璃分隔的烘焙室,顧客亦可見到師傅們在製作麵包。

單從店名相信店子主要是售賣麥包,溜灠一會後發覺店子是以歐式的麥包為主。有”唐寧伯爵鳳梨”,”法式蜜釀芒果”,”卡門貝爾”和”鹽可頌”等。

重點都集中在以各式乾果、果仁和芝士作饀料。麵包造型精美,食材配搭亦見心思。只是價格稍高,由二十至五十港元不等。但因這類麵包用料較貴,工序亦頗多,定價相對高亦算合理。

I went out after lunch to pick up my notebook computer from the repair shop. When everything was settled, I walked to Tin Hau and prepared to go home by bus. Right at the junction between King’s Road and Lau Sin Street, an elegant bakery caught my attention – Wheatie Bakery.

From the two big windows on its green storefront, you can find wooden benches filled with breads arranged on the two sides of the shop. The baking area is right behind the cashier and customers can watch the bakers preparing the breads through another large window.

Judging from the name Wheatie, selling of whole wheat breads should be the theme of the shop. After strolling for a while, I realised that the shop is mainly selling continental breads like Pineapple bread with Twining and Earl Grey, French Honey Mango, Camembert and salty Croissant, etc.

Major ingredients are various dried fruits, nuts and cheese. All the breads are beautifully shaped with rich ingredients but are a little bit pricey from HKD 20 to 50. Given that quality ingredients are used for the breads and much more preparation works are required, the high price tags are still reasonable.


 

今次我買的是小紅莓、菠蘿芝士軟麥包。

This is the Raspberry, Pineapple and Cheese bread that I have today.

包身輕盈,內𥚃鬆軟,麥味濃厚,麵包師傅的造詣可記一功。我也很喜歡菠蘿和芝士這個配搭,很有驚喜的味道。

我個人喜歡較硬的歐式麵包,而麥典坊的麵包用料和製作則和台灣近年的歐式麵包相像,喜歡軟麵包的香港人應該較易接受。

The bread is airy with soft crumb and has a rich taste of wheat, probably is the result of the good works of the bakers. I also enjoyed the mix and match of Pineapple and cheese, really a surprise to me.

Personally, those crispy continental breads are my favourite while breads from Wheatie are more closely resembled those soft Taiwan styled continental breads that got extremely popular in recent years. Hong Kong people like most of the Asians, should find them more attractive.


 

只可惜今天發生了一件頗不快的事,令我對店子的整體評價需要作反思。

事縁收銀大姐收取了我三十元,那一刻我也有點驚訝,覺得有點貴,但因想一試麥典坊的出品,和她再度確認後也照樣附上一張二十元和一張十元紙幣。臨離開時我再看看架上價錢,確定只需二十元,即與大姐追討收多了的差價。但她堅持只收了我二十元,並扮作點算收銀機內的錢幣與紀錄相符。

由於她沒有提供收據,我也無任何物証可確定她收多了,最後只可無奈地離開。

回家途中,從網路上找到一些關於對麥典坊的評價,原來去年八月中也曾發生過不快過案,那只好怪自己太不小心了。

Despite the breads from Wheatie are great on the good side, however, one unpleasant incident occurred that made me to wonder.

The story started with the cashier asking for HKD 30 for the bread I bought which I also found it quite pricey. As I would like to try Wheatie’s bread, I handed in one HKD 20 note and one HKD 10 note after confirming the price again with the cashier.

Before leaving the shop, I checked the price on the shelf and it was clearly HKD 20 per item. I immediately returned and asked the cashier for refund of the overcharged portion. To my surprise, she insisted that she had only received HKD 20 from me and pretended to check the cashier machine to show there was no discrepancy.

Given that there was no receipt provided by her on the payment and I had no evident to prove that she had received my HKD 20 & 10 notes, I had no choice but to leave.

On my way home, I found one negative comment on Wheatie occurred in last August from one famous food review platform. Poor me!

希望老闆可以留意相似的不快過案,是否可以在收錢過程上作修正,以減少不必要的爭議。

 

至於麥典坊手感烘焙的評價,我就留待大家去思考了。

 

Frankly speaking, I hope the boss of Wheatie can take a look at similar cases and see if there is any improvement be made to reduce possible conflict in all future payment.

 

Back to the overall experience on Wheatie, I will leave this to the readers.
