Best crepe in Pondicherry is at my house, made by my husband Romain. Its True, i am not flattering him (wink)
Since i can’t invite all of you home, i can suggest you a place where you can get the most delicious crepe with an ambiance that justifies Pondicherry. Do not miss going to CREPE IN TOUCH !! It is located on Needarajapayar Street between MG Road and Mission Street.
Unfortunately i dont have a photo of the crepe(s) that i have eaten because it went down way too fast but you can find any mouthwatering images of Crepe on their google map page. I stole one picture of Tripadvisor, in case you are one of the lazy readers who don’t like exploring several sites.
Is crepe a pancake ?
French may explain it to you by saying ” It’s a french pancake” but they will never accept its a pancake. Looking at the recipe that goes in, it looks like a pancake while if we look at the process and how the result is, i would say its like a Dosa (ingredients are not the same though).
Crepe can be made with variety of fillings and can be sweet or salty. My favorite is Crepe with egg (as in the image) and the simple butter, sugar crepe.
These are the example of but not limited to types of crepe :
- Banana Chocolate
- Egg & Ham/ Cheese
- Butter and sugar (with lemon)
- Crepe Suzette ( popular one)
- Tomato / Cheese
After this you can use your imagination.. Fill it up with Cherries, berries, cream, spinach etc… The Indian in me come out often, filling my crepe with some grated cabbage/carrot and Chili Sauce, turning beloved French Crepe into a Roll 🙂
