Creme De La Crepe, Covent Garden
Decent crepe action can be found at the Creme De La Crepe in Covent Garden. I had an afternoon discovering science and planet Earth so something flat sounded like a proper fix for a pre-dinner tummy rumble. I ordered the Rumble in the Crumble (£5.25) which is a crepe filled with apple compote, crumble, cinnamon and cream. The normal homemade crumble was out of stock so it was substituted with some ginger biscuits here. Staff are charming, and the wait isn’t too long. The plating is all a bit fast foody, with plastic cutlery and boxes ready to go. The filling was a nice little mix, the sweetness of the apple coupling well with the spice of the cinnamon and crunch of the ginger biscuit. The substitution did leave the dish on the sugary side, but it’s a small portion and happily shared.
