#foodpost: Vanilla Cafe Express @ IOI City Mall

This week, I had the opportunity to travel to Putrajaya with my friends for a gathering and we came across this newly open cake kiosk - Vanilla Cafe Express @ IOI City Mall that serves mille crepe cakes and drinks. Just the perfect spot for tea time!

Here's the picture of the kiosk located just right next to Tony Romas

To start off, we ordered 6 different flavours to share. We took advantage of the on-going promotion they were having on that day which is RM4 for a slice of cake which I think its very reasonable for a piece of mille crepe. 

 Midnight Chocolate
An indulgence made with Belgium Chocolate

Oreo Crunch
Bittersweet matcha with a touch of creamy sweet white chocolate

Uji Matcha Green Tea
A ceremonial grade Uji Matcha infused into every layer of crepes

This is in fact one of my favourites among all, I can taste the perfect balance of green tea between every later of the mille crepe and its not too sweet either. Just the right amount of sweetness! To matcha lovers like myself, you'd not want to miss this slice!

Italian Tiramisu
 An Italian blend of cocoa powder & coffee

Lemon Cheese
 A vibrant mix of lemon and cheese

Salted Caramel
 Where sweetness & saltiness intertwines within each layer

Salted Caramel has always been my to go to flavour whenever it comes to cakes and desserts! This slice served here at Vanilla Cafe Express certainly did not disappoint me. So, do try it out whenever you're dropping by!

Ice Chocolate

Last but not least, I've also tried their Ice Chocolate drink here at Vanilla Cafe Express to wash down the mille crepe.
