French influences are strong in the dessert list as showcased by presence of Éclair and Macaroons. We enjoyed the macaroons here as it comes with a light crust, and not overwhelming with sweetness. On top of that, the homemade nougats are another worthy highlight with soft and nutty texture that will not glue all over your teeth.

To balance the sugar rush arising from the desserts, Chef Ong slotted a range of savoury items such as chicken pies, tuna and turkey roll for you to play around with your tongue. Switch between sweet and savoury to cleanse your taste buds while reducing the fatigue arising from having too much sweet stuff.

Drew Berry More, 72% Dark Choco Truffle (RM 32.90+)

At the same time, Crumbles and Cream also offers a good range of desserts and we leverage the visit to sample some of them. Yes, it was a true treat to our palate.

One fine exemplary dessert here is Orange Ganache (RM 10.90+). The creative combination of chocolate and orange gives a great balance between richness from the chocolate and sweetness contributed by the sugar. As cocoa tends to give a tad of bitterness, the chef has incorporated some heat elements to give it a slight spicy aftertaste to mask it.

If you are a cheese fanatic, then Double Cheese (RM 10.90+) will definitely drive you into craze. Humongous richness from the cheese that melts in mouth is no men or ladies will resist. If you prefer something lighter, then pick Strawberry Joconde (RM 10.90+) that offers sweet and spongy texture.

Sometimes a good evening is best spent doing nothing and just talking with your other half or buddies. In this case, order a Le Souffle (RM 18.90+), a dessert that needs 30 minutes preparation time. Every souffle is made upon order, ensuring a fresh souffle garnished with mix nuts and ice cream. Conventionally, vanilla ice cream is served but other options are available. 

Give Drew Berry More (RM 32.90+) a shot if you are searching for a lofty dessert. It has a big scoop of chocolate ice cream, served along with mixed berries and oreo choco powder, then garnished with truffle oil to give it an aromatic finishing. Every bits of it is dynamite.

A worthy mention here is about the ice cream made in Crumbles and Cream. As most patrons are here to enjoy good food, taking pictures are a must concurrently. Therefore, the chef has specially made their ice cream with less milk with compact ingredients to slow down the melting process, allowing you to enjoy taking photos with the food without worrying much.

A la Carte Signature

All Black Pasta, Squid ink vongole (RM 28.90) 

For a more solid and stomach fulfilling food, there are a series of main course too. We thoroughly enjoyed the All Black Pasta, Squid Ink Vongole (RM 28.90), and thus far it is one of the best squid ink pasta we have tasted.

The spaghetti noodles are al-dente and comes with the right amount of heat component to give it a more enthusiastic enjoyment. The plate has lightly sauteed garlic, dried chili flakes, chives, dill, cherry tomato confit and olive oil, then served along shell calms and prawns. Parmesan cheese and truffle oil are sprinkled on top of it to give it a sleek and aromatic finishing.
