I’ve been down with a cold this week. I have mostly spent my time sleeping or watching TV. But it’s Friday and I can’t let another day go by without at least another review! Last weekend Jake and I were over in Kearny Mesa to meet up with a couple of friends. Afterwards I decided I wanted a snack and I popped into Mitsuwa to check out Marion Crepes.
Marion Crepes is right at the entrance to Mitsuwa and right across from the ramen place inside the grocery store.
They have sweet and savory crepes available.
If you need a visual, they have it at Marion Crepes.
You have the option to get your crepe in a to go box, a plate, or in a paper cone.
I watched as the guy started to make a crepe. It doesn’t take very long!
He uses a special tool to spread the batter out thinly on the hot griddle.
Smoothing to fill in all the spaces and edges.
And the crepe is pretty much done at this point. It sits for a few more seconds before getting filled.
I got the Nutella and Strawberry Crepe [$5] with a side of New York Cheesecake [$0.75]. I thought maybe the cheesecake would be put on top of the crepe and melt into it but it was served on the side. Not a bad portion for 0.75 cents!
The side of the crepe.
Here’s a better view where you can see the swirls of warm nutella and the pieces of juicy strawberry. The crepe was nice and thin. It was pliable but the edges had a nice crispiness to it that I liked. I spread a little bit of cheesecake into my crepe as I ate it and it made it a bit creamier. I wouldn’t have minded if it they had cut up the pieces of cheesecake and spread it over the nutella, but it was fine on the side as well. A really yummy little afternoon treat!
