La Creperie Hong Kong has been delighting locals and visitors alike since 2007 with their crêpes and galettes. We pay a little visit to their outpost in Sheung Wan to catch La Creperie’s director, Yann Blandford, just after the lunch rush.
La Creprerie Hong Kong
G/F, 69 Jervois Street, Sheung Wan
Move over, pancakes. There’s a new stack in town.
Crepes are quickly becoming the superstar French import in the city. These incredibly versatile sheets of pastry can be eaten on its own or with a sprinkling of sugar, topped with jam and fresh fruit. They can also be folded with ham, egg and cheese. Licking your screens yet? Have it for breakfast with a freshly brewed cup of coffee on the side. You may also scarf it down with some ice-cold cider for dinner. It doesn’t really matter what time of day it is, it’s always crepe o’clock.
With the simple ingredients one needs to make a crepe, you’d think anyone can whip it up anytime they want. But it took us at least 50 tries to realize we don’t have the finesse required to make a perfectly round and thin crepe. So we asked around. Word of mouth led us to the “French”-populated district of Sheung Wan, into the doors of La Creperie. We heard it is a favorite of French residents, expats, even French tourists – thanks to its popularity and certificate of excellence on Trip Advisor. And you can’t ask for a better sign of its authenticity than that.
We sat down with La Creperie’s Director in Hong Kong, Yann Blandford. Yann explained that the success of their business could be attributed to the authenticity of their food and their warm service. And on that note, our sweet crepes and savory galettes were delivered by a smiley man in a blue and white-striped shirt, in true Brittany style.
