Velvety Layers

Not much of a dessert person but I never say no to Mille Crêpes. As easy as some say its easy to make, I tried making it before and I nearly pulled my hair out. Its too much patience and skills required! The pan must be hot enough, the batter must be thin enough otherwise it will feel like eating pancakes! You need to be skilled or fast enough with tilting the pan for the batter to coat the pan evenly. And of course the patience of making at least 20 perfect crêpes for one Mille Crêpe. Oh! And the patience and skills again for spread the cream evenly and thinly. Too much work for me!

Places like Velvety Layers are my lifesavers. The fun of eating Mille Crêpes minus the hard work in the kitchen is welcomed with open arms. Newly opened in IOI Mall, Puchong a week ago, this is a good reason for me to visit IOI Mall, something which I rarely do unless a site visit is required for work purposes.

Didn't know that they have a Combo Meal promotion. We reckoned it is probably one of teh better ones in town. RM10.90 for your choice of pasta and drink. A good deal since the pasta is your reggular serving slice. The unexpected part was the drinks meant you can choose from Dilmah's Execptional range, Lavazza coffee and soft drinks. I seriously thought it was a joke when we were told the price.
This Dilmah Exceptional Peppermint and English Toffee to help me ease my heartburn blues that plaqued me over the weekend.
Quite a selection of pastas and sauces to choose from. Its all about having fun with your food so no worries even if your mix and match sounds unconventional:D
My obvious choice of Seafood Spaghetti Aglio Olio. Amazingly they asked how I preferred my pasta. I said al dente. Came out al dente...I am impressed! This aglio olio was tasty. Oily enough but not soggy oily if you know what I mean. And spiced with their own Velvety Layer's magic chili mix. I wished it was spicier though...
and my wish was granted with a whole bowl of that magic chili.
Proven to be al dente again as per Mei's order is the Penne Seafood Carbonara. Creamy rich sauce envelopes every penne. And the best thing of this dish was the sauce also filled the hollows of the penne pasta. Every bite was squirts of cabonara goodness.
Because it was so good, we ordered one more plate of the Penne Seafood Carbonara to be shared between the hubster and I.
Fettuccini Beef Bolognaise was OK. We would have loved it more if it had more tomato puree to it.
Being unconventional and Josen has the Macaroni Chicken Aglio Olio. 
We also tasted the Thai Crispy Chicken (minus pasta since we wanted to save room for dessert). As the name suggested, its crispy chicken with Thai sauce. A tad sweet but it comes from the sweet ripe pineapple used. Quite appetizing nevertheless.
And desserts is of course Mille Crêpes. At RM9.90 per slice, some may find it a tad small but its worth the price. 
I tasted the Vanilla Temptation some months back at a pool session with some good pals. Yes, Velvety Layers has delivery services too! Lush and satisfying...is the goodness of real vanilla beans used in the cream. Every bite is absolutely decadent!
Blueberry Peanut Butter is yummy though it could do with more peanut butter kick to it but that was merely my thoughts since the hubster said it was fine and reminded me that I am a "peanut butter monster". This Mille Crêpe gave me a happy feel as it reminded me of my fave childhood 
Gobber Peanut Butter and Jelly spread that I will run through a bottle in 2 days if my mum didn't 
keep an eye on me.
Enjoy the goodness of Oreo in every bite of this Milky Oreo.
The healthiest of all the Mille Crêpes is probably the Yoghurt Raspberry. Berrily good with a tinge of yogurt tanginess.

We're technically quite filled. However this Zenberi whole bar of ice cream was too irresistible. I needed that ice cream fix on a rainy Sunday night:D
Inky Pinky Ponky, Father bought a donkey. Donkey died, Father cried. Inky Pinky Ponky
And the choice is a refreshing Kedondong RM7.90 per scoop with lil bits of asam. A must have if you love the yumminess of iced kedondong.

And for a change, how about celebrating the next birthday with a Mille Crêpes instead of a regular cake? We had one for my sister's birthday over the week.
