June 5, 2008Crepes come from Japan
It’s a tiny shop located in Causeway Bay.. which brilliantly caught my attention. “Crêpes” are a French specialty, “Marion” is a French firstname, the background on this picture is made with France’s national colors, the word “Pâtisserie” is French (means “pastry”).. and all this is supposed to come from Harajuku, Japan. Now the funny thing is.. I’ve also been to Japan and once there I fell upon this same “crêpes” shop. Here is what the food looked like:
It’s actually slightly different from what we cook in France and much more “artistic”. But it’s still good. So shall we say there is another specie of “crêpes” in Japan, supposedly imitating French ones, but resulting in different colors and shapes?
