Even though they have now established a reputable name for themselves as purveyors of delicious, unique desserts, the innovative proprietors of this company have not forgotten how they started: literally going around knocking on doors to get orders – hence the name. They have come a long way since those early days in Johor, and moved from taking and delivering orders – although that still remains the core of their business – to having their very own outlets. One is located in Bangsar in KL, and the other opened recently here in Straits Quay, Penang.

Their most famous offering is mille crepes which apparently originated from France (mille means a thousand in French). It is basically twenty layers – OK, not quite a thousand – of thinly-made crepes (pancakes) which are painstakingly stacked by hand one on top of the other, interspersed with whipped fresh cream, vanilla custard, and whatever other flavour is asked for. They currently offer nearly 20 mainly home-made, and the list continues to grow, with a choice of optional toppings. In Penang, there are about a dozen or so flavours available.

The result is a veritable work of art, and scrumptious to boot. It’s a wonderful combination of flavours and textures.  They look uber rich and creamy but looks can be deceiving – every slice is light and quite sinfully delicious. My favourite, and apparently one of their best-sellers, is the oh-so sophisticated French Vanilla, made with specially-imported pods from Indonesia – no artificial additives here – although the Coffee Bliss and Lemon Cream Cheese are equally divine.

They also offer mille sponge, 3 layers of light-as-feather sponge cake interspersed with fresh cream again, and cheese cakes, all freshly made to order without preservatives. So if you are planning to end a birthday or dinner party with this unique dessert, or just fancy a bit of indulgence, do give them sufficient notice to come up with one of their delightful creations.

After dinner at any of the myriad restaurants along the quay, stroll along there for a cup of fragrant Musetti Italian coffee or one of their specially-created bespoke sodas and a slice of their wonderful desserts: how much better can it get?

For details or orders, do check out, or pop into their outlet on the ground floor of Straits Quay.
