Humble Beginnings is another shop which specializes in Mille Crepe. They claims that they use only the finest ingredients for your indulgence. No artificial ingredients, no preservatives, no additives. Instead real vanilla pods (not the bottled extracts), real custard (not the powder + water concoction), best chocolates, best creams, best cheeses, freshest fruit, the list goes on.... These statements triggered our interest and curiousity, hence we drove all the way to Straits Quay just for their mille crepes.

Humble Beginnings outlet in Straits Quay is kind of small and seats are very limited.

But we kind of like their interior design which uses orange as the theme colour. Orange colour, the very embodiment of warmth and happiness, makes you feel lively, optimistic and uplifting. And those orange decorations on the ceiling and wall seems to be flower buds? What do you think?  

We reached there at around 10pm. Therefore, only limited choices of mille crepe left. A big disappointment because they do not offer any coffee at that hour and we can only opted for the soda drinks such as raspberry vanilla or strawberry soda and  passion fruit with cucumber or lychee soda.

Passion fruit with lychee soda (RM8.90). It tastes just like an ordinary fizzy soda drink, but then at least not too sweet. A good choice of drink when your thirst hits. However, I personally think this drink don't worth the price. A bit pricey. Besides, not to forget to mention, a complimentary water with a twist of lemon is given to every dine-in customer. 

French Vanilla (RM9.90). Original flavour of mille crepe always a crepe to-die-for. The topmost layer of the crepe is caramelized to give it a nice smokey sugary flavour and each layer of the crepe is of the same thickness. We like the delicate texture of the crepe although to us it is not smooth enough. In addition, it is not too sweet but the enticing flavour of vanilla seems to be too mild, hence the crepe turned out to be creamy instead. I would prefer mille crepe from The Twelve Cups.

Oreo's Cookies 'n' Cream (RM9.90). This mille crepe is one disappointment. My response at the first bite was "is this an oreo mille crepe?". Barely no crushed oreo cookies can be seen and the oreo taste is too light. Anyway, in matters of taste there is no dispute. Taste is very much on personal preferences and I personally prefer desserts with stronger taste or rich in flavour.

I will drop by Humble Beginnings again to try the other mille crepe.
