Kuala Lumpur - Fabulous Dutch Desserts from Huize van Wely

klyeoh | Sep 23, 2012 01:12 AM

This 90-year-old Dutch fine patissierie came to KL by way of Jakarta (Indonesia's a former Dutch colony after all). It offered some of the best (and most expensive) chocolates, pastries and mignardises in town - all air-flown from Amsterdam, each of these little dainties cost RM14 (or around US$5, incl taxe/service charge) a pop. Were they worth it? Oh yeah!

What I tried:

- Roze Schuitje, boat-shaped frangipane topped with vanilla creme, glazed with pink-tinted chocolate

- Karamel Bakje, frangipane with a mocha chocolate glazed border of hazelnut creme, with lightly caramlised macadamias in the centre.

- Kasteeltje, Muscovite cake with raspberry creme, surrounded by a layer of rose-flavored marzipan, topped with a rosette of vanilla creme and a pink marzipan ball.

- Progres, Progres cake with mocha creme sprinkled with finely-chopped hazelnuts, glazed with mocha chocolate, mocha creme and a whole hazelnut.

Each mignardise was perfect, albeit slightly sweeter than I'd have preferred. But I liked the cakes here better than any of the local home-grown places (Ben's, Plan B, Acme, Alexis, Just Heavenly, etc.) with their localised form of Western-style baked goods which honestly aren't very good.

BTW, HvW also brewed one of the best cappuccino I'd tasted in KL.
