BY CK Lam – A sweet note to end 2012 and a great way to start 2013!

As we know, Humble Beginnings started out providing online ordering of freshly hand-made and hand-layered mille crepes. It has since spread with the opening of its mille crepe cafes throughout Malaysia.

In Penang, you can enjoy the mille crepes in their outlet located in the charming Straits Quay.

The mille crepes made by Humble Beginnings are so texturally interesting, with twenty delicate layers of crepe and delightful combination of fresh cream and vanilla custard between each layer.

Everyone can find one flavor to love from its many varieties including French Vanilla, Strawberry Heaven, Chocolate Orange, Peanut Butter Chocolate, Peach Passion and the Matcha Latte. The Strawberry Heaven with plenty of fresh strawberries blended into the cream is rather delicate and is one delicious flavor. For those who love chocolate, the rich and delicious Chocolate Velvet would sure to blow you away.

As much as I like the Chocolate Velvet, the Reese’s surprise is another tasty choice. The  ingredients of Hershey’s Reese’s – creamy peanut buttery and rich milk chocolate provides a wonderful blend of flavors (RM9.90).

In addition to its usual selection of mille crepe, Humble Beginnings also offers sponge cakes and cheesecakes. The sponge cakes are not particularly sweet and comes with options like the Ultimate Chocolate Cake, Peach Passion Mille Sponge and Strawberry Mille Sponge.

The cheesecakes made from premium grade cream cheeses are also justifiably popular. Choices include Apple Crumble Cheese, Blueberry Cream Cheese, Almond Brittle Cheese and Chocolate Chip Mocha Cheese Cake.

The Chocolate Chip Mocha Cheese Cake is flavorful with marbled cream cheese and mocha cheese on Oreo’s base (RM8.90).

Customers can enjoy the mille crepes and cakes with complimentary mineral water with a twist of lemon and other choices of cold refreshing sodas, tea, chocolate or specialty coffees. The coffee menu by Musetti comes with choices like espresso, cappuccino (RM7.90) and long black (RM6.90).

The mille crepes and cakes are available for takeaways, and customers can carry them home in lovely boxes.

I find myself continually coming back for more at this haven of dessert mille crepes. The pleasant interior design of the cafe is based on Jean-Francois Debongnie’s well known flowers.
