Did you drop by the Mercado Central last December? If you were there, I’m sure you heard of the French guy selling uber delicious crepe. They were usually the first booth to leave because they were always sold out. The good news is that if you missed them last time, you’ll finally get a chance at their undeniably good tasting crepe.
La Creperie Paris finally found a home in the metro. That means more crepe and coffee dates for all of us!
La Creperie Paris serves authentic tasting French crepes. You can pair it with coffee for a more enjoyable experience. There is a very wide variety of crepes to choose from. Choosing the right crepe is the tough part. Everything seems so good!
We decided to start with the chef’s specialty, La Pomme Francaise. For the Sweet Crepes, this is one of the best sellers. It has caramelized apples with cinnamon and salted caramel. Let’s just say, one bite and you can’t stop.
La Banane a Split (banana with Nutella or Dark chocolate) and La Glace Caramel (vanilla ice cream, salted caramel and toasted almonds) are equally good. Other interesting picks for Sweet Crepes are La Philippine, La Calamansi and La Cebuana.
For those who don’t have a sweet tooth, they serve Salted Crepes. I tried La Classique which was made of Ham, Emmental, Mozzarella and Egg. It definitely gives you a new perspective on crepes. Don’t order this when you are full. It is packed and made me feel like I ate a whole meal. I never thought I would get that feeling from crepes but surprisingly, I did.
Another must try for Salted crepes would be the La Saint Jacques (Scallops with Onion leaks in White cream).
If you want to get creative, you can make your own crepe. If you want variety, you can order the Galette platter (Salted Crepes) or the Crepe platter (Sweet Crepes). The platter will allow you to choose between four different flavors.
The sound of French crepes makes it sound a bit pricey and scary. It was such a relief to know that their crepes were priced right. Sweet Crepes are priced from Php 95- 145 while the Salted Crepes are slightly higher in price. It starts from Php 135-235. The Crepe Platter costs Php125 and Galette Platter at Php175.
It’s like Paris meets the Philippines inside their new spot. The furniture has a Filipino feel while the frames and Eiffel towers will surely make you dream of Paris. It’s perfect for dessert dates.
La Creperie Paris is at Unit 1 Sonrisa Suites, Juana Osmena St, Capitol.
