Though they're the same shape as pancakes, crêpes are folded rather than stacked, and coated with powdered sugar rather than the tears of pancake chefs who wished they could be crêpe chefs. Dine on a not-pancake with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of crêpes and drinks at Boba and Crepes in Glendale.
Boba and Crepes origami-enthusiast chefs enwrap a multitudinous menu of sweet and savory ingredients within wafer-thin pancakes. Each variety of crêpe concoction arrives in an easy-to-carry boxed cone for those craving a pastry on the run or an escalator. Ham and pineapple mingle with deluxe sandwich fixings in the Hawaii crêpe ($5.75), and premium smoked salmon doused in butter and melted swiss cheese clogs the cone of the salmon supreme crêpe ($8.25). The Nutella fruit supreme crêpe ($5.95) corrals juicy chunks of strawberry, pineapple, and kiwi in a syrupy sea of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream, making it a suitable stand-in for a birthday cake or a boutonniere. Tiny orbs of pudding drift within sweet sippable mixes of puréed fruit flesh called snow bubble smoothies ($2.99 for small), and hot water tastes less like air with herbaceous tea brews ($2.99 for small).
