Xiao by Crustz is one of a well known dessert shop quiet neighborhood Happy Mansion in Section 17. They have been around for about 2 years and I have always come across mix review about this place.
I have tried Mad Hatter and some readers ask me to drop by to this place for a verdict hence I have decided to drop by recently.
If you are here on weekend, do prepare to queue abit if you come on the wrong timing as the place is rather small and cater to only limited dessert hunters.
Not only the place is small but their choice of cakes available is also limited. By their cake display counter, maximum will have only 7-9 flavours depending on size and their flavours change accordingly.
By looking at their dessert, it is very pretty and also a technical dessert by overlaying multiple layers and flavours along. Masterchef inspired ? Maybe…
This is what I mean limited seatings.
Well, as they name their item will be on the French baking style as per piece is not cheap. More on the high side.
Pretty for pictures as we hit on different cakes at different profile given. This is not fried egg on top but done the sunny side up with chocholate is rather impressive.
This is Oeuf @ RM 17 – Yuzu meringue, brownies, chocolate tart, and Passion Fruit.
This is recommended by the girl at the counter if you like something fruity sweet end. This is Fortune Cat @ RM 18. Choux, lychee jelly, strawberry compote.
Coffee is not the best thing as I wish can make a take away from cafe next door.
If comparing Mad Hatter and this place, this place win as the flavor profile is more distinguish and more prominent in layer flavoring.
On the down side is, you are getting a cake at RM 18 per piece which is a bomb to me. I guess I am not the right segment as although I love my dessert alot but going to be my only visit here. For the rest of you, shall let you decide you like or dislike it.
