Not sure when Hoshino Coffee had included Mille Crepes in their menu, but since I am quite into Mille Crepes I thought it would be good to give their rendition a try.

Available in quite a few flavours such as Chocolate, Matcha, Strawberry and Vanilla the Mille Crepes here aren’t quite the Lady M sort that features delicate layers of thin crepes slathered with vanilla-infused pastry cream; the Lady M version possibly being the most quintessential one of all Mille Crepes I have had. That being said, Hoshino Coffee’s rendition is not too shabby — the crepes are slightly thicker and drier than that of Lady M’s but they are still rather light compared to other variants I have had , while the pastry cream is still satisfyingly rich and smooth, and perfumes of an aromatic vanilla fragrance. No doubt Lady M’s version does hold a place in my heart, but Hoshino Coffee’s rendition is a pretty decent alternative option that I would go for Mille Crepes where Lady M is not available.

That being said, I wished the service staff at Hoshino Coffee Bedok Point could be more attentive to the details — especially so when it comes to the plating of the cakes. Visited the Capitol Piazza outlet just a week before this, and the service was meticulous for a joint like themselves; the Mille Crepe coming to the table with a misaligned cake liner and the end of the spoon touching the cake at the Bedok Point outlet just really ain’t the best they could have done. Some things that they could hopefully pay more attention in somehow ...
