Desserts always make any day a happy day. Nadeje is a very popular dessert shop that has many outlets all over Malacca and Kuala Lumpur. You can also order whole cakes online in advance and pick it up at the outlets.
The outlet at Malacca Mahkota Parade is always packed with customers with both indoor and outdoor tables. When the restaurant is packed, you can queue at the chairs provided outside the restaurant. Usually the indoor seats are more popular because of the air-conditioning.
There are easily more than 15 flavours to choose from although some flavours are only available at certain outlets. Some of the more popular flavours are the rum and raisin, tiramisu, chocolate banana and lemon cheese. There are also special flavours like Malacca which incorporated gula melaka in the recipe
We ordered the rum and raisin, original and the tiramisu and the best accompaniment for the cakes were floral tea served in a pot. The cakes are priced at RM 12 per piece but the price can be slightly higher for special limited edition cakes. The tea is priced at RM 9.50 per pot and some of the favourite flavours include earl grey lavender, rose green tea and white peony with rose tea.
All the crepes are very well made with each layer of crepe made very thin and consistent and cream spread out evenly in each layer. Every bite of the cake is filled with creamy goodness and the cream is not too sweet or oily like other cream cakes. My personal favourite is the tiramisu, rum and raisin and the lemon cheese. We tried some of the special editions but they fell short of expectations.
The restaurant also serves other hot meals like salads, fries, finger food, noodles, pasta and western grill and fried meats so you can have a full meal with dessert at the restaurant. Overall, I find the crepes worth every calories and it is a much lighter version than the usual cakes. For now, we can only have them across the causeway, hoping the day someone bring it over to Singapore
