Tickling My Tastebuds: Top 3 Mille Crepes
With so many restaurants and cafes offering mille crepe cakes on their menu, how will we know which deserves to grace our tastebuds? Here are my top 3 Mille Crepe Cake Countdown.
Number 3: Nadeje Cake Shop, 3 Two Square
Now we don't have to drive all the way to Malacca to get our Nadeje fix as they have opened up an outlet right in the heart of Petaling Jaya at Dataran 3 Two Square. I recommend their original mille crepe cake (RM9.50) that was simply oozing homemade custard vanilla cream that was light and not too sweet. The many layers that form the mille crepe are thin, allowing the Tahitian Vanilla Beans flavour to linger as it melt in your mouth.
Number 2: Food Foundry, Happy Mansion
Every crepe cake lover has heard about Food Foundry's delicious crepe cakes but the one particular crepe cake I would like to highlight from this place would be their Almond Salted Caramel cake (RM11). Topped with crunchy almond bits, this cake has the perfect balance of sweet and salty as the salted caramel sauce complimented the light texture of the cake wonderfully.
Number 1: Red Beanbag, Publika
And finally, the number spot for, perhaps, the best rum and raisin mille crepe cake I have ever taste, the Red Beanbag at Publika. I have blogged about it before but a second visit merely confirmed it. The rum and raisin mille crepe cake (RM14.90) explodes with ample rum flavour soaked into the layers and cream. There is also plenty of raisins in the cake which is also soaked in rum, living up to its name sake of rum and raisin. It is more expensive than most places but trust me, it's worth it.
