Crepe Struggles

Sur la Route de Plouescat

4 Rue Lamarck, 75018 Paris, France

Crepe: an ultra-thin pancake, originating from France, traditionally made using wheat or buckwheat flour and served with either sweet or savoury fillings.

K and I had a lot of trouble finding a creperie to eat at in Paris – the first one that we visited was closed for renovation (they were literally open the day before!), and the second was also shut despite its opening times stating otherwise. This left us feeling dejected and wondering whether we’d ever get to eat crepes in Paris (a tad dramatic, I’ll admit).

Luckily, we found Sur la Route de Plouescat while visiting the Sacré-Coeur at night and ended up having a lovely meal of paper-thin crepes filled with delicious and fresh ingredients.

Flambe crepe

For me the alcohol was a touch too strong and overpowered the flavour of the crepe itself, but K seemed to really like it.

It’s hard to believe that this delightful creperie exists mere 100 metres from the tourist craziness of Sacré-Coeur. We were very happy with our meal and would love to visit again one day!
