I had visited the Creme de la Crêpe location in Hermosa Beach many years ago and upon spotting this crepe cafe on a visit to the Peninsula Promenade, I knew I had to checkout via Creme de la Crepe Rolling Hills. After all who cannot be crazy for crepes? 🙂
The French delight consisting of a thin pastry is quite hard to find in Southern California. much less place that offers both sweet crêpes and savoury galettes. Here at Creme de la Crêpe however they have variety of both the sweet and savory. All of their crêpes are even made with gluten-free crêpe batter. Aside from crêpes they have lovely dishes like risotto and pastas along with amazing wine selection.
I started off with getting a savory crêpe. It was hard to choose from the various savory delights. They use local & organic produce as well as grass-fed beef & free-range poultry. I ended up getting the Marocaine.
The Marocaine has jack cheese, spicy lamb sausage & madeira mushroom sauce. I don’t often get lamb but tonight I wanted to try something different and indulge in something special. Special indeed was the Marocaine. The lamb sausage was nice and tender and not spicy at all. I love the madeira mushroom sauce. There were several slices of mushroom and the sauce itself was thick and tasty.
From savory to sweet, we could not pass up getting a sweet crêpe for dessert. Our choice was the Leila.
The Leila was indeed one crêpe not to be passed up. Named after the owner’s daughter is this delightful sweet treat. In between the soft thin pastry were chunks of banana. On top of the crêpe was caramelized pecans, drizzles of caramel sauce and sprinkles of powdered sugar. The banana along with the pecans were amazing.
A perfect match with our crêpe were the delightful Lavazza Italian espressos.
Bold, rich and full of flavor; our espressos were the right companion to our sweet crepes.
Dinner at Creme de le Crepe Rolling Hills was indeed a lovely time and my visit here all proved that I am indeed crazy for crepes. Crepe crush indeed.
