RAMADAN MAY BE over for another year, but it has left the nation re-entranced with the rich, fruity taste of high-quality dates that are so closely entwined with the season. Thankfully, the end of Ramadan doesn’t mean the end of these nutritious treats; a visit to Baaji’s stall at Bangsar Shopping Centre is all it takes to disappear back into the world of dried fruit delight.
Baaji’s – located in Mont Kiara – is a store already revered for the high-quality imported dates, figs, and various other fruits that are sold not only in their unadorned glory, but are also used to whip up delicious pastries with honey and nuts such as pistachios and cashews.
These treats are not only an indulgent selfish pleasure, they also make superb gifts when visiting, to say thank you, or when celebrating important occasions, and Baaji’s has made life easier by launching a stall in Bangsar Shopping Centre where gift boxes and hampers of all shapes, designs, and sizes can be bought to thrill your friends and relatives with a selection of these Eastern delights.
Quality is the watchword for Baaji’s products, and while the imported ingredients are some of the best in the world and the pastries are made in Baaji’s own kitchen by their Egyptian chef, quality also extends into the containers that house these treats. Ornate boxes, shimmering plates, and stylish vases are just some of the pieces that have been imported from all over the world to be loaded with goodies and wrapped with style.
With Christmas approaching alarmingly quickly and birthdays and anniversaries always springing onto the calendar, these hampers and gift boxes make perfect presents no matter what the occasion; a healthy and nutritious change from chocolate and an inventive alternative to wine. With sizes and prices ranging from RM45-1,250++, Baaji’s has something to match the person you have in mind; just make sure they promise share these delectable treats with you, too!
