When we were finishing up lunch at Stout with CT’s Mom, she needed some dessert to balance out the salty meal. We took a brief look at Stout’s dessert menu, but quickly passed as it was pretty boring. This was not surprising since many pubs are not exactly known for their desserts. We suggested getting a crepe at Crepe Monster, located on the top floor of Food Gallery 32. CT and I had never gotten crepes there, although we had every intention the last time we ate there.
CT and I were both pretty full, so only her Mom got a crepe. She decided on a banana nutella crepe. I believe it was less than $6. They also offer a variety of savory crepes too.
The guy(there was another worker, not the girl in the above pic) behind the counter didn’t mind me taking a few pictures as he worked. He did a pretty good job with it. I made crepes once in cooking class and it definitely takes a lot of practice.
As you can see, the crepe was nicely browned so it would hold up with the ingredients. It was 100x better than the sad, soggy crepe at Lina Frey.
There must have been at least one whole banana used, if not more.
Alas, the finished product. CT’s Mom was quite happy with the crepe. The fillings were nicely spread throughout, so each bite would be a tasty one.
CT says: As full as I was, I of course had to take a bite. It was really delicious! I appreciated seeing all the fresh fruit they used and the banana was perfectly ripe, without being mushy. And the nutella just oozed out perfectly. I’ll have to go back just for the crepe one day soon.
All in all, Crepe Monster makes a good crepe. It is located on the 3rd floor of Food Gallery 32 away from all of the other stalls, so don’t forget about it. I need to return with an appetite so I can have a crepe of my own.
