Creperie 11-20-2009

Location: 135 Ludlow St.
Time: 10pm
People: RB and myself

Feelings: After spending Happy Hour with friends at Local 138 Bar on Ludlow, we were a little hungry. We followed the sweet aroma of crepes across the street. Creperie is hall-in-the-wall creperie that has been serving drunk kids a pizza substitution for over eight years. They have both savory and sweet, and the price is between $4-$11. They are conveniently open until 3 am, so they sure know who their clientele is.

We ordered it with Nutella ($6). They have other interesting flavors such as "House Special Crepe" tiramisu, Nutella, strawberry, and whipped cream and "The Famous Crepe" strawberry, banana, Nutella, ice cream, and whipped cream.

I like eating crepes the way they are meant to be eaten, especially at creperie stands: served in a cone shape wrapping and eaten without utensils. You can really enjoy the chewy-ness of the crepe that way. Unfortunately, they served it on a plate, and I had to cut the crepe with a plastic folk. I felt like I was wasting the great texture. The soft crepe with warm and sweet nutella was well cooked, but I missed out on the great crepe experience.

Regardless of the serving style, if you are bar hopping in the area, crepes might be a good late night snack of choice. I must warn you they do not have a bathroom there!

Yeah crepes! The Crooked Tree on St. Marks serves up some pretty good crepes, a lot of the basics. There's also Crepe a' teria in Queens, in Queens! Go figure.
