Chefs at Crepe Delicious swirl paper-thin layers of batter onto their piping-hot crepe griddles, perfuming the air with the enticing aroma. Shortly after, the cooks lift away delectable crepes ready to be stuffed with savoury ingredients. The crepes themselves weigh in at only about 130 calories each with just 3.5 grams of fat, but they sate appetites during any meal.
Amid a cozy dining room festooned with Parisian posters and sparkling glass jars filled with sweets, Holy Crepe!’s team of Gallic pancake gurus whip up a menu of sweet and savoury noshes. Diners can talk fork or spork preferences over bites of savoury munchables such as a Manly Man crepe brimming with chicken, prosciutto, and aged cheddar. Chefs stuff the Zeus crepe with Hellenic staples such as feta cheese and olives, while the Brekky crepe’s egg, ham, and shallot insides shake up morningtime meals. For a post-prandial treat, sugary crepes –including a Yummy crepe gilded in Nutella and peanut butter– twitterpate taste buds with their decadent fillings. In order to accommodate dietary restrictions, an optional upgrade enables patrons to swap out regular crepes for gluten-free buckwheat bases or Frisbees made in a tree-nut free factory. Sips of coffee or tea ensure that talk boxes remain caffeinated and hydrated throughout the meal.
