Gone were the days when Malacca was perhaps the only place to have mille crepe. Now, there are couple of cafes that offer the almost similar legendary dessert in Klang Valley. And this is one of them which was opened not long ago. It is said that this particular one is by the person (and/or originator) who made the dessert famous in Malaysia.

Humble Beginnings, Bangsar Baru

For first timers, it is tough to locate this cafe due to its tiny occupied vicinity. But fret not as it is located right beside Subway restaurant. There are very few seats in the cafe and even fewer selections of desserts available than I first thought it would have.

You will be disappointed if you would to compare them with the selection you see from their website. The usual ones like Vanilla, Coffee and Chocolate are on the menu but let’s hope that they expand their menu in near future.

French Vanilla Mille Crepe by Humble Beginnings

Since choices were limited, we opted for each of French Vanilla (RM9.90) and Coffee Bliss (RM9.90) flavour. Texture wise, we found that the crepes were a little thicker than the ones in Malacca. It was harder to cut through with given fork.

Maybe they had been sitting in the fridge for quite some time which made the crepe to harden a little bit, I don’t know. But in terms of flavour, it was still as good as it supposed to be. The taste of vanilla and coffee was subtle but yet able to impart their iconic essence.

Humble Beginnings, Bangsar Baru

All in all, they were good. Just that the thickness that got us wondering if this is normal. Nevertheless, one would not need to go that far off for a good slice of mille crepe anymore as there are plenty of choices in Kuala Lumpur now!

  1. Our mille crepes here are cheaper, also very nice. Love the appearance of this place – so clinically clean. I hear the crepe chef’s the original one at Nadeje, Malacca…quarrelled with boss and left to open his own…but so many outlets all over – dunno where he himself is based.

  2. so far i only tried the Nadeje

  3. It might be the thin cream that prevent you from cutting tru.
    The lack of cream in between the crepes will cause the whole thing appears to be hard.
    Actual thickness of the cream have to be at least thrice the thickness of the crepe.

  4. Ooo… Not officially opened yet, are they? Amos told me about it but didn’t say when.

  5. i’m a fan of mille crepes! though i do agree that it comes out overly chilled at too many places, and i find myself having to wait about 15 minutes for it to soften. but i still like it much more than, say, a regular chocolate cake :D

  6. It looks abit dry. Is it?

  7. Glad that we don’t have go all the way to Malacca to have mille crepe now ;)

  8. suituapui : Cakes like this are generally more expensive here but people are still willing to pay, albeit on rare occasion. He used to do delivery / pick up service in KL, Penang and JB. But now, he opens up one for dine-in customer, I guess…

    Simple Person : There are plenty more in Klang Valley for you to try. :D

    Miao : Hhmm… Possibly.

    Jason : Not sure. But they announced it on their website and FB. So, I guess it’s official.

    Sean : I think most places stored them longer than they should be making it slightly dry by the end of the day. I like both but I think I can finish a piece of mille crepe compare to a chocolate cake. Haha.

    Melissa : Yea, it was a lil dry on the edge.

    Choi Yen : Yeap! But this one has less flavours compared to the one in Malacca.
