Le me shall announce as the first post done by me in this collaborated blog with le friends.
So on the date as mentioned above, four friends and I have met up and decided to go to a place which I have never heard before (but was claimed by my other friends that this place was a to-look-out and was covered by quite a number of bloggers). Since it was my first time, and according to my trustworthy friends, it was rather a good place (odd location though) served with good food. Heard that the mille crepe cakes were the main attractions.
Located in the hot area or should I say rather a secluded and odd (like I said earlier) in SS17, pretty much hidden within a neighbourhood with flats. You'd never expect a place that kind of fancy dandy to be located ina low cost flats neighborhood. To get there, we got lost and missed a few turning, which led to my friend took a very illegal and dangerous maneuvering of the car to do a quick 3 point turn.

Funnily, the cafe is divided into two parts (like literally) and to get to the crepe cakes (no, we weren't sitting at the side where the crepe cakes were), we had to walk out of the cafe, choose the cakes we want and walk back to the other side of the cafe. Odd much again.
I only managed to take our side of the cafe because my camera battery decided to go low after not charging it for two days. Meh.
|Spot one of the bloggers' head? :p|

Okay. To the menu, because all of us were pretty much hungry that time.
We were given the menus, in old style diner notebook style, which reminds me of waiter's book to jot down menu. Looks like this time terbalik.
We ordered our own respective dishes accordingly, however the waiter's service disappointed me because he made two mistakes. Firstly, when a person usually orders a pasta, naturally in your mind there will be a few selections of the types of pastas you can choose to compliment your pasta delights. But no, when he took down my menu, he did not ask for my pasta preference and just walked off.
Hoping he'll realize his mistakes and come back to me (Celine Dion's song at the background), there's the second mistake he did. He did NOT came back.
Instead, he bluntly serve my pasta in spaghetti type and walked off. Perhaps he was not too happy since the restaurant does not charge for service and government taxes.
Speaking of price, in my honest opinion, with the overall value I see in the pasta as served to me, I do not think RM19 was worth to pay. Plus, I am not full (nor nausea from having too much cream on my alfredo).
|The actual size on the ratio compared to the plate served. Quite a small portion to me.|
|Original portion of the pasta VS the plate size.|
Well, I got curious for the better to understand what is the distinct difference between alfredo and carbonara sauces so I went to look up in Google to get the comparison.
What is great to find out that my alfredo is supposed to be served with fettucine pasta! The exact pasta I wanted to compliment my sauce but the waiter decided to be ignorant about it. Heh.
Anyway, to the dessert corner.
|Selection of mille crepe and different cakes available|
|The price is somewhat expected for a fad food like this.|
|As recommended by tripadvisor. I'm not one of them though. Lol.|
|This cake appeals to me, but for a slice with that price, I can eat two big bowls of meehoon soup and have a change.|
|Tyng opted for the Apricot Mille Crepe. RM11|
|Andrew opted for Chocolate Mille Crepe. RM9|
|Me and Wei Ying decided to have a fair share at Vanilla Mille Crepe. RM9.|
The winning piece? Me and Wei Ying's. You know why? Because of its fresh, distinctive taste of vanilla, cool bitten into your mouth and the layering of the vanilla scent compliments to the not-so-sweet, just nice sweetness level. One of the most satisfying mille crepe cake I have eaten/tried.
Chocolate was a bad choice though, poor Andrew. Haha.
Tyng's mille crepe wasn't bad either, if you like apricots(which is hard to get by anywhere nowadays), you can always opt for hers.
All in all, this place ranks so-so to me, I had a little too high expectations when I heard reviews from my friends so you would say I am rather dissapointed.
On the bright side, this cafe does not charge service and government tax, so you save 16% off your overall bill.
Free wi-fi service and in my opinion, just gives them the advantages to let their customers do the free promotion for them, as offered by many cafes nowadays.
You can locate them at;
Address: BG8 Happy Mansion,, Jalan 17/13, 46400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor Darul Ehsan.

Lunch hours maybe a little pack so I'd suggest to come by here for a tea time chat with friends or perhaps dinner for the ambiance.
