Another Japanese dessert store has open in Plaza Indonesia, Jakarta. First Love Patisserie. Thousand layer cake a la Hokkaido. Apparently the patisserie has been in business since the end of 2010, but this is the first time I’ve seen its outlet. According to a Jakarta Globe interview of the owners it seems that the brand came out of Malaysia.
When I first saw it yesterday, I tugged James, “Look, Baukumchen!” We immediately went over and picked some tiny samples. Wow, delish! It turned out that it was not baukumchen. It was something better. Placed in between countless paper thin crepes are equally thin layer of vanilla cream. Yummy mille crepe One bite, I was caught. Good bye ‘back to my original weight by July dream.’
