There's a new diner in town called La Creperie Paris. So, its French and they serve crepes (can it be more obvious?!)
My friend took me there on my birthday because:
1. I tried to learn french yet failed.
2. Paris is my dream destination.
3. I have a huge crush with the French chef.
4. and the crepes
I have tried to learn French since college. The pronunciation is just too difficult and spelling is another story. The only main reason why I enrolled those classes was because I like how it sounds.
There something about the Eiffel Tower that amazes me, like a moth glaring at a flickering oil lamp, every time I see a picture of it. My minds starts to wander. When will I see you Paris?
I didn't really know he's a chef. We met him at Mövenpick. He's the boyfriend of my friend's friend's-friend. He caught my attention while he was in this small pool nothing but he's board short. Drool. He started talking and I caught his accent. He was from South France. Interesting.
I didn't really fancy crepes. There's something in the pancake that disagreed with my tongue until I tasted the mango crepe from Marco Polo. So when my friend told me that the crepes at La Creperie Paris tasted good I took her word for it, plus I know the chef and it was a birthday treat, how could I say no?
They serve two types of crepes, the salted crepes (the breakfast type) and the sweet crepes (the dessert kind.)
|La Fermiere: Bacon. Mushroom, Emmental, Mozzarella and Egg @ 185 pesos|
Salted crepes are made from buckwheat flour. You can never go wrong with bacon. Surprisingly I like it. It was heavy actually or perhaps I did not come with an empty stomach. La Classique was marked with a flag on their menu. Its the chef's specialty made of Ham, Emmental, Mozzarella and Egg. I prefer bacon than ham so I chose the first.
For dessert my friend chose the mango. The pancake tasted good. It was thinly made the way I want it. It tasted good overall however, I wish they seasoned the mangoes with butter, lemon and wine they same way in Marco Polo. The fresh mangoes were not as sweet. (so I've tasted better mangoes)
I chose apple-cinnamon with salted caramel and vanilla ice cream. I give this 2 thumbs up. I can be biased. but hey who doesn't love caramel and vanilla. Toppings are toppings, what I watch in a crepe is the crepe (I call it pancake) itself. and this compliments well with the toppings without the eeekkk taste.
Like any other french meal. I wrap it with a fine coffee.
They are located near Sacred Heart School for Girls. Its near Homebakers along Juana Osmena St. They are open 11AM to 10PM. see the facebook page here.
