I have long known of La Crêperie de Hampstead, recommended by numerous friends as London’s most typical Parisian street crêperie. They are situated permanently in a “food truck” on Hampstead High Street, down the road from Hampstead Station.
Although we have ventured into Hampstead many times through the years, it was only last week that we chanced them upon them opening their windows – and so we got second in line, excited to finally try this promised delight.
Huddled in a side street, we burned our tongues as we bit into our crêpes too quickly! We made short work of the light crispy buckwheat galettes, full of ooey gooey cheese & filling (ratatouille for me, ham for Older Daughter). As we licked our fingers clean, we sighed in satisfaction at an experience all too soon over, ginormous though we had thought the crêpes.
Dreaming of what we will have next time.
