I have always loved both salty and sweet crepe and so was very excited about a creperie opening in Hong Kong. Hard to reserve a table for dinner Friday night, they were packed at 6pm already, so we went at 5pm instead. Started with the cider which was wonderful, I was downing it so fast I forgot there was alcohol in it.
We had the following: Ham Cheese and Egg Les poulainsraclette – smoked ham, potatoes, cornichons, salad Le flout mixed mushrooms -bacon, garlic, parsley, cream, salad Le baronetre – stewed apple, salted butter caramel Les pierresnoires – camembert, smoked ham, mixed mushroom, salad Val de Rance sweet cider
The salty crepes were only ok I think because the fillings when combined as they were were quite strong. Out of all of them I preferred the simple ham, cheese and egg. The best was the stewed apple and salted butter caramel, it was even better than I hoped! Usually sweet crepes are filled with fruit and chocolate or cream, and the fruits are never sweet so they have to cover it with chocolate or cream, but with caramel and sweet stewed apple it was such a perfect combination!
Ended up the 2 bottles of the cider plus the crepes came to about $1000. I thought this was pricey but the caramel and stewed apple was worth it. Nice cozy place to chill out with your friends, gets crowded and noisy though but all the better atmosphere for a night out.
