2 weeks ago I sent out an invitation to my friend Kamsiah, Jennifer and Angelina who is a few close, active readers of mine for a lunch at my friend’s cafe; Velvety Layers at IOI Mall Puchong. It was nothing fancy though. Just a simple meet, chat, lunch, coffee and dessert session. Another reason is also because I promised my friend to go over to try the food. If I’m going why not drag a few girls along right?
After weeks of waiting the day finally came. I don’t know what had gotten into me yesterday morning. I was walking around the garden looking for a slight sight of the sun but the sky was cloudy and it rained. Then I lazed around in my room taking time to issue cheques for credit card payment. When I looked up at the clock it’s already 11am! I’m suppose to leave house by 11 am and I’m still in my pyjamas! I rushed to bath, did my makeup hurriedly and left house with crooked eyeliner LOL! I think the rest is pretty much like how you imagine – drive like a mad woman. Let’s just say I’m not exactly that late hehe. I reached 12noon and before that I asked Jennifer to get a table for me first *thank you dear*
Velvety Layers is not hard to find. It is strategically located at IOI Mall (old wing) facing the main road. If you can find McDonalds then you can easily spot Velvety Layers as they are just next to each other technically.
As soon as everyone arrived we ordered our food and drinks at the counter because their menu is all on the board behind the cashier counter. This is a small cafe which specialize in hand crafted Mille Crepes cake but later on Velvety Layers offer pasta as well.
Velvety Layers is all about Mille Crepes, hand crafted from the freshest ingredients ensuring a smooth velvety texture and an unforgettable taste. The dessert chef is a young and talented guy whom has a couple of years experience in Mille Crepes cake making.
Besides that Velvety Layers also offer finest artisan ice cream from Zenberi which is actually gelato that has much lesser fat compared to ice cream. I also found out that its low overrun (air whipped in) makes it extremely dense, rich in flavour and creamy to texture. They offer free sampling too and we tried out a few hehe. I bet you have not heard or try black sesame ice cream before isn’t it? Then you must try Zenberi’s.
All four of us sat down and start chatting away and our pasta arrived before we know it. Kamsiah, Angelina and I ordered carbonara chicken while Jennifer ordered seafood aglio olio. According to my friend, their carbonara is creamier than others because they only use premium cream in the sause.
This is what I ordered. Carbonara Chicken Spaghetti and Yoghurt Raspberry with Lavazza Latte.
If you are not a coffee or hot chocolate person you can option for Exceptional from Dilmah premium tea range.
I’m glad the girls are not too shy to chat among each other while I sneakily took their picture :). Ahh well actually they are well aware that I took their picture haha.
Before we left, the girls exchanged phone numbers with each other. Lastly here is a picture of us!
I hope everyone had a good time yesterday. I will definitely organize more lunches and tea party with more and more of my readers.
