Mille Crepe@Austin Chase, The Gardens, MidValley City

Has been craving for Mille Crepe long time ago. Wondering what is Mille Crepe all about? It is a French cake with "mille" meaning "a thousand". It is basically a French dessert made by layers of thin pancake.

French Vanilla Mille Crepe RM13.90
*Sorry for the bad resolution of this pic, took with my iPhone 3GS. Below are the clearer version of pics grabbed from Rebecca
The French Vanilla Mille Crepe is made of 20 layers of thin lacy crepes, sandwiched with clouds of Fresh Cream and Vanilla Custard. The top layer is caramelized and lightly fluffed with shavings of vanilla shreds to give it a nice smoky sugary flavor. 
Each bite of the crepe melted in mouth folds a smoky sugar coat with refined layers of thin crepes and whipped cream lightened pastry cream. It was light and fluffy with mousse-like creamy filling, indeed a delicate dessert crepe.
I know it is full of sin doing this for a weight watcher like me! But did not think much of that because there were eight of us sampling a slice of mille crepe. *winked*
I wouldn't say this is heaven until I try out the one in Nadeje Patisserie, Malacca and Food Foundry, PJ. But overall, this piece of pastry scores well. 
There is only 4-5 varieties of Mille Crepe available at Austin Chase for your selection. Beside that, they have other cakes and pastries as well. A recommendation from Xiang, the coffee at Austin Chase was a boost, serving perfect blended premium coffee which is rich and aromatic both in taste. Beating down Starbucks? Definitely return for the coffee! 
You can always drop by at Austin Chase, The Gardens, MidValley City to sample out the crepe.
