hkvibes : Crepes come from Japan

Crepes 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?

    Where is this shop in Causeway Bay? I think there are 1 or 2 similiar shops in Mong Kok area as well. You can have it either in a taste of salty (with ham & cheese, similar to French or beef sometimes) or sweety (ice-cream & fruit).

    This shop is located really close to the World Trade Center, under Yee On Building I think.

    For people have never been to Tokyo, Harajuku (原宿) is a district of Tokyo it is not a city name.
