Worlds are colliding... The purple food craze continues and dripping, drooling, insta-worthy foods are still making businesses.
Now this treat is slightly pricey, but take into account the time and effort it takes to make one, it seems your bites to savor it would also need to appreciate the care for each and every slice.
Enter... the crepe cake. This version feature ube, the purple yam, that has got mouths watering near and far. Often mistaken for the Okinawan sweet potato, which may assist with coloring, the Ube is actually a different ingredient. 21 layers of paper-thin crepe creamy goodness with fluffy cream and drizzled with ube creamy syrup. This is a delicate and more creamy than anything take on cake. The crepes give it a slight sense of texture amidst the fluff while also beholding its delicate taste.
While you might think this is overly sweet and overwhelming it is actually very delicate and more creamy than anything else. They also have other flavors like strawberry and chocolate but those can't hold a candle to the vibrance and brilliance that is the ube purple goodness.
Now the cost per slice direct from Miss Chen's is $6.50, but if you purchase this from another retailer it is going to cost you $8.38 with tax. Take into account the process, painstaking layer by layer application and then the uniqueness of the product. is it worth it? Yes, but not an everyday purchase.
