Doutor's Delicious Mille Crepe and Other Goodies
I have been wondering whether to tell people about Doutor's divine mille crepe. You see, each day, they only serve 40 slices, because the cakes are limited in quantity and imported from Japan (I hear only six chefs know the closely guarded recipes).
They surely have to bring in more soon. It is so wonderfully indulgent, those layers of thin crepes sandwiching cold sweet fresh cream. And yet, like so many Japanese confections, it is so light and tasty.
Yes, those of you on my Instagram will have seen me posting about it (luckily I don't have that many followers, so only a few will see my real-time quick bites). One of my dear friends went to try it and said, "Oh my God, now I know why you posted about it - it's so good, I can eat all 40 slices!"
So yes, eventually most of you will find out, and this is really too good to keep to myself. So here it is.
Of course, they also have other selections (all their cakes are very simply and reasonably priced at S$6).
The Matcha and Red Bean Cake is also really quite a treat.
The Pumpkin Tart is pretty dense and rich.
Oh the hot dogs are not bad. There are four kinds, this is the Lettuce Hot Dog (S$4.50), which is a decent size, and the sausage has that nice snappy casing that I like.
The drinks are also quite good. Matcha Latte (S$5.80 for small) and Cappucino (S$5, small) here. I'm not a big coffee fan, but I do tend to like Japanese coffee - just the right flavour characteristics for me.
I did also try the Royal Milk Tea, but felt that was a bit weak. A lot of milk but the tea was not strong enough.
For now, it looks like the menu is quite simple. Your teas, coffees, soy and matcha lattes, juices, and sandwiches, toast, hot dogs and cakes.
I have been coming here a few times since they opened in August. It's not too crowded during off-peak hours. And I love the bookshelf-print curtains at the back of the cafe.
As many of you know, Doutor is a very ubiquitous coffee chain with thousands of outlets in Japan. Somehow in Japan, I never quite caught on to them, but I'm really liking the Singapore outlet.
