Revisit & Updated.....
So I paid Vanilla Cakes another visit to revive some old Mille Crepe tastebuds.
Vanilla The Mille Crepe Cafe
Mille Crêpe is a type of very thin pancake that originated from France. Vanilla Cakes offers more than 30 flavors of it, with each mille crepe consisting of more than 20 layers of paper thin crepe.
There is a range of Mille Crepes that Vanilla Cakes have on display.
A slice of Mille Crêpe costs Rm9.00 and a 1.3kg cake costs Rm85.00.
You wouldn't miss the extremely friendly and energetic Indian staff there, he showed me some pretty impressive customized 3D mille crepe on his ipad. Cool stuff.
Throughout my couple of visits there, I've trial and tested a fair portion of the Mille Crepes they have to offer. Being relatively new in Paradigm Mall, they are still doing rounds of free tasting sessions.
True Vanilla (Orignal)
Comparing the Original Mille Crepe from Nadaje and the French Vanilla Mille Crepe from Humble Beginnings, I found this version slightly on the creamier side.
I found the taste and texture of Cheese overpowering the taste of lemon. The lemoney flavor would needs a little more zest.
The staff told me that this is one of their best selling Mille Crepe. The combination of strawberry and fresh cream worked really well and it wasn't too sweet also, just the way I like it.
This version had a bit of a mocha taste to it. Not one of my favorites nonetheless.
I was told that D24 is used in the making of this Mille Crepe. The taste of durian was very evident but the combination of fresh cream, cheese and durian was not at all overwhelming. I would highly recommend this.
Bamboo Charcoal Power. Rm9.00.
Being one of the most popular Mille Crepe sold in Vanilla Cakes, I have to get a whole slice of this. Contrary to its name, this did not taste like charcoal at all. I can't really describe how this taste because it just tasted like vanilla crepe except that was black in color. However odd that may sound.
Somehow I think this combination works because the charcoal crepe layers somehow neutralizes the sweetness of the cream. Hence, it wasn't that sweet after all.
Italian Tiramisu. Rm9.00.
Slightly on the creamier side, the tiramisu was light and flavorful. Though I must say, there weren't much coffee flavor to it.
Additional flavors and full menu available in Vanilla Shop FB page.
Overall Rating: 7/10. You would like this if desserts are your thing and this is a awesome alternative to the conventional cakes. Vanilla Cakes also have 2 other branches, one in Subang Jaya and the other in Kajang.
I found Vanilla Cake's mille crepe to the creamiest amongst Humble Beginnings and Nadaje, I would presume its because the layers of fresh cream is slightly thicker for the former. In other words, I were to take a bite, the drier version would be more fluffy but the creamy version would be more compressed. If I were to make a comparison between all 3, Nadaje would come first because I fancy drier Mille Crepes and am not a big fan of cream, followed by Humble Begginnings then Vanilla Cakes, though Vanilla Cakes is the cheapest among all 3.
