Sometimes, you know you’re in trouble before you even take a bite. This was definitely the case at Crazy Crepes, a Japanese chain that serves sweet and savoury crepes.
It was game over before it even began; as soon as I ordered my crepe, the woman behind the counter went for a big pile of pre-made crepes and started putting mine together.
I’m not sure why, but crepes are one of those foods that deteriorate in quality within minutes of being made. Fresh crepes are delicious; old crepes are a pale imitation of their previous selves.
I’m sorry, but when it comes to crepes: make it fresh or GTFO. Yes, I’ll wait. Get out of here with that dry, rubbery garbage.
I ordered the Strawberry & Kiwi Fresh Cream crepe, which the menu notes is one of their signature creations, and of course, it never had a chance. The kiwi and strawberries were both pretty sour, but if the crepe had been really good, it still could have been tasty. Alas.
