Nadeje Mille Crepes @ PJ 3 Two Square

February 19, 2013

One of Malaccas best-known brands springs a sweet surprise: Nadeje, whose mille crepes have become near-legendary since 2006, finally branched out this week into the Klang Valley, opening in Petaling Jayas Three Two Square.

Theres no need now to make that two-hour drive to my southern hometowns Mahkota Parade: The complete spectrum of Nadejes treats can be purchased in PJ, exactly what this cake shops three outlets in Malacca/Melaka offer.

Customers can choose a slice of, say, tiramisu mille crepe, let it sit for several minutes & have their patience rewarded with pleasure-rich layers of butter-soft creaminess; immaculate in terms of texture, subtle & not too sugary, taste-wise.

Theres a flavor for everyone, from praline mille crepes constructed with hazelnut paste & crushed caramelized hazelnuts ...

... to this liquor-laced one, studded with raisins preserved in rum for a week. Most cost RM9. 

Caffeine lovers might appreciate this slices aroma of roasted Italian coffee ...

... while fromage fans may admire this sweet-salty cross between cheesecake & mille crepe. 

Nadejes most decadent temptation: Double Chocolate, with dark choc cream & choc chips. 

Back to basics: The original that started it all for Nadeje, with sumptuously smooth house-made custard cream & Tahitian vanilla bean mix. Thoughtful touch: Ice packs keep the crepes cool for takeaway orders.

A visit here should include Nadejes Nama Donuts, launched last year. Thin sponge cake thickly topped with creme caramel in flavors like Gula Melaka & Green Tea.

Nadeje operates 11am-10pm in a secluded corner of Three Two Square. But theres little doubt that Nadejes legion of fans will flood this cafe soon.
