This crepe was made by crepe master Vartan at La Crepe 2Go.

La Crêpe 2Go in Montreal, Canada – It’s All in the Batter; La Crêpe 2Go à Monréal, au Canada- Tout est dans la pâte

La Crêpe 2Go in Montreal, Canada, hands down, is the best crepe place in North America for me. When I think of Montreal, I think of the crepes in La Crêpe 2Go. Why is it good? It is about the batter. It is the freshness and thinness that are found in an authentic crepe. #crêpes

La Crêpe 2Go à Montréal, au Canada, pas de questions, c’est le meilleur restaurant à crêpes dans l’Amerique du Nord pour moi. Lorsque je pense à Montréal, je pense à La Crêpe 2Go. Pourquoi est- t- il si bon? C’est la pâte. C’est la fraîcheur et la finesse qui se trouvent dans les vrai crêpes. #crêpes

As support to my claim, I drive six hours from NY to Montreal for a breakfast at La Crepe 2Go twice a year, April and October. This is my devotion to the crepes here. Well, short of going to France for crepes.

La preuve, je conduit six heures de New York à Montréal pour un petit déjeuner à la Crêpe 2Go deux fois par ans, en Avril et en Octobre. Voilà ma dévotion aux crêpes ici. Bon, à part d’aller jusque’ en France pour les crêpes.

This is the crêpe master, Vartan, with his helper. He is the proud owner of the store, prepares the batter by hand every morning and makes all the crêpes.

Voici le grand maître des crêpes, Vartan, avec son assistant. Il est le fiere propriétaire du restaurant. Chaque matin, il prépare la pâte et fait tout les crêpes.

Crêpe with spinach, egg and cheese. Nothing fancy but extremely delicious and satisfying.

Crêpe avec œufs, épinards, et fromage. Rien de extraordinaire, mais extrêmement délicieux et satisfaisant.

This is the starter: egg, ham and cheese. You can see the thin ham through the crepe. The eggs were beaten, fluffed, and somehow thinned out. This is such a contrast to the breakfast crepe I had a couple weekends ago in Mt. Kisco, NY. That crepe was fat and looked like a burrito.

Cela est la ” starter” : œufs, jambon, et fromage. Vous pouvez voir le jambon dans la crêpe. Les œufs étaient battus, bouffés, et en quelque sorte, faite plus plat. C’est une grande différence à la crêpe que j’ai mangé il y a quelque semaines à Mt. Kisco, NY. La crêpe ressemblait à un burrito.

I just love this place. Highly highly recommended it. Two thumbs up!! If you are ever in Montreal, please visit Vartan’s creperie. You will not disappointed.

J’adore ce restaurant. Je le recommend en priorité à ceux qui peuvent y aller. Si vous êtes jamais en Montréal, allez visitez la crêperie à Vartan. Vous ne le regretterez pas!

Little Crêpe Street in Mount Kisco, NY – Crêpes Wanna Be

Little Crêpe Street is a little crêpe place in Mount Kisco, NY. I had an enjoyable Sunday brunch there with a friend last week. This weekend I am headed up to Montreal, Canada, and will be visiting my all time favorite crêpe place, La Crêpe 2 Go. Therefore, I must write this post before I become too darn assimilated into the French culture and become highly critical of the crêpes I had. #crêpes

BANANA FOSTER: salted caramel, toasted pecans, rum flambé : It was okay. Interesting enough but the banana tasted a little too ripe for me. The toasted pecans were nice and I wish there were more rum.

image
SAUSAGE, EGG, PROVOLONE, tomatoes, onions: My friend had the savory crêpe and she said it was good! Looked good and smelled good from across the table.

So what was wrong with the crêpes here? Why am I having a hard time finishing this post?  They look the part. But truly they tasted like American crêpes. Not thin, not buttery. Just crêpes wanna be. They even have “CHOOSE YOUR CRÊPE: original, buckwheat, gluten free rice + lentil, or gluten free lentil.” This just sends chills down my spine. WHAT?  

Of course, my friend, originally from England, and I picked the original flour crêpes and not the bastardized version. They were still too Americanized. It’s an American breakfast slapped on a French pancake. I still remember a similar small crêpe place in Paris and it was night and day in comparison to this experience. I also remember a crêpes place in Utah where I almost had an argument with the owner on the definition of a crêpe; I got served a burrito!  Ok, I am stopping now before I completely butcher this place.

The crêpes are fine if you don’t mind the Americanized version.  If you want authentic French crêpes, do what I do -> head up to Montreal where they actually know about French food.
