Dotty's Cafe @ TTDI

3:51:00 PM

Salted egg yolk has been the craze recently with quite a handful of the cafes in Klang Valley coming up with their own variations. From myBurgerlab's Ultraman Burger to Le Bread Days' Salted Egg Yolk Croissant and now, Dotty's Salted Egg Yolk Kronut. Of course, there are more than just these examples but I'm just putting out the popular ones. 

So after looking at some Instagrammers posting photos on such a delicacy, I had no choice but to head on down to Dotty's Cafe on Chinese New Year Eve just to try it out. After all, it was tea time and I needed some place to eat. So without further ado, here is what we had. 

The stuff we ordered.

Salted Egg Yolk Kronut - RM11

So the star of the day would definitely have to be the Salted Egg Yolk Kronut. Freshly baked every 2 hours, starting from 11am to 1pm and the last batch at 3pm. For those who wants to get their hands on this, you might have to come a tad bit earlier to kinda place your order before hand. Take aways tend to sell out quicker too. 

Onto the taste, it is slightly sweeter than most pastries that I've had. It is however, very flaky and crisp despite the period spent on taking photos. The salted egg yolk doesn't seem to be from those powdered version as I could still taste lumps of the egg, but then again, I may be wrong. 

Overall, it is a nice piece of pastry to say the least, but I guess having one is my limit as I find it overly rich.

Lemon Meringue Cake - RM9

Since I drove all the way here, I might as well try some of their cakes as well. Unfortunately, the cake itself was incredibly sweet, and it gets sweeter every time. It is very 'lemon-y' in taste, but the sweetness kinda kills it off. Of course, if you love sweet things, then this cake is definitely a must try for you. 

Piccolo Latte - RM9

What would tea be if it wasn't paired with a cup of coffee? The total amount of coffee on the menu is fairly little, so I opt for the Piccolo Latte instead. In any case, it is slightly stronger than most, with a smooth and nutty flavour. Aromatically, it wasn't very permeative, but it's a good cup of coffee to say the least. 

Overall, I think that the stuff I had will not conclude an answer to whether the pastries here are good, but the Salted Egg Yolk Kronut was quite delicious. The cake however, wasn't really my cup of tea. The cafe too is rather small with limited seats, so for those who wants to get a comfortable place, do come in odd hours. 

Also, do not forget to call in to check on whether their Salted Egg Yolk Kronut is available, just in case.
