Let’s welcome the new kid on the block… The Crepe’s Story! Situated within Adelaide’s Rundle Mall strip (Hindley St end – across the Myer Centre/Lush store entrance), this little crepe bar is bright and frilly… and pink, very pink (I suppose they’re trying to push the theme of “sweet/cute” with all the pink and frills – I geddit).
There were a handful of people standing outside the tiny joint, many stared at the window display of plastic crepe replications either intrigued by the figurine themselves or the array of toppings/concoctions of savoury and sweet crepes available.
Store front, employees decked out in pink uniforms, crepe batter, spreading nutella over the crepe.
C and I placed our orders in and marvel at the employees in their frilly white and pink maid like outfits with matching head bands whilst they created our crepes. A scoop of batter was poured onto the hot flat crepe pan, and with a swivel motion with a crepe spreading stick-thing, the batter spreaded out on the pan into a thin layer of crepe goodness ready for all the good stuff to go in! Chyeahhh!
Strawberry ice cream, $7.00
I ordered the Strawberry Delight (nutella and strawberries, $7.40 – not pictured). The crepe as a whole was rather underwhelming and flat. Honestly, I wish there was more to it… maybe a scoop of ice cream would have helped. Tearing the paper off the cone was also a trick in itself! Why’d they make it so hard? Or maybe I’m just incompetent when it comes to these kind of things?
I think we’re just going to stick with the crepes in china town instead. Tastier, easier to eat (hello knife and fork!) and super affordable too!
