I've tasted heaven and it comes in the form of crêpes. Twenty crêpes, to be precise. Twenty, paper-thin, chocolate crêpes that are ensconced in a pastry cream that's infused with banana, to be even more precise. This is the Chocolate-Banana Mille Crêpe cake that I ate today at Lady M in The Plaza Food Hall and it is finer than 95% of the cakes I've had in all of my time on this planet.
Also, relevant fact of the day? I hate crêpes. I feel like they have the texture of what skin would taste like. Always thought that. Never saw the appeal of them. Even now, I'll still never be that woman who drags her boyfriend to some crêperie for a charming night out. Gross. But this cake? Fucking nuts. So tasty. This is the one exception I will ever make.
A slice will set you back $8, and a whole cake runs for $80. Now, if you're a human with a normal understanding of budgets and common sense, I understand that $80 is ludicrous to pay for one, lone cake. I wouldn't dare spend that much on something that I could possibly eat whole in under five minutes. But you? Maybe you're loftier than I. Or perhaps you're just living a fuller life than most, in which case - go buy this cake. Lady M has two locations in New York, but this flavour is only available at The Plaza location. Eat this, man. Eat it now.
