Such a beautifully wrapped up pancake tastes great even if you eat it on its own. We love the original taste of these crepes and eat it plain or spread a thin layer of butter and peanut butter! If I happen to see 'Crêpes' in the restaurant menu especially in French or Italian restaurant, I would like to try them out and taste how delicious is this French dessert, the restaurant way!
Thus, I happened to saw this beautiful restaurant photos and their fantastic menu located in Bangkok, Thailand. Those Crêpes sell in this restaurant looks so awesome, with chicken salad toppings, wonderful apricot & fruits sauce, garden salad fillings and so much more! It is so mouth watering! If you are visiting Bangkok soon, do check out Café Olivié in Central World.
