When Mr. P decided out of the blue to take four of us out to the new creperie in Casco Viejo, it was a smouldering 30c in the sun. We all had stories to tell, most of them were of eating soggy crepes in freezing weather, so this was going to be a new experience.
Traditionally decorated, in Breton red with cream, this creperie is pleasantly uncluttered, with a small bar in a corner, ideal for solo eaters! They do sweet and savoury crepes with a choice of buckwheat or wheat flour and salads. Not so much of a crepe fan, Mr. P chose a fish rillete salad, which he confirmed was fresh corvina, with a good portion of well seasoned salad.
My buckwheat crepe, ‘Atlantel‘ consisted of smoked salmon, sour cream, lemon, dill and salad and was so generous in the fillings, I had to share. Julie, thwarted by her non-sharing husband and hoping for half of something sweet, was forced to make one of those last minute bad decisions and ended with a rather dry ham one. Whilst a very pleased Andy enjoyed all to himself, a ‘Degener Mat’, cheddar, minced beef and homemade onion confit with home made tomato cavier. The crepes are deliciously thin which I love, and if cash and hunger were in abundance I would have downed one of their chocolate specialities. I’ll be back to use their free Wi-Fi and partake in one of my female sweety fixes with or without Mr. P.
Before departing though, we were all treated to a glimpse of the house speciality, the humongous ‘Aroak Atao’ (see below) with potatoes, raclette cheese, bacon and prosciutto with mixed salad being served to the neighbouring French table with wafting smells of the Swiss Alps – über YUM!
