Looking to bite into a delicious crepe? While Paris is too far away for a quick getaway, there are some establishments Mumbai that cook up a mean crepe, something that will take you on journey of flavors and aromas. From sweet to savory, from the classic to the adventurous, these places in Mumbai are perfect for a crepe indulgence.
The great thing about the crepes at The Rolling Pin is that they’re completely gluten-free and are made of bajra flour. You can choose between the dessert crepes – Nutella, banana with salted caramel or classic with vanilla sugar – or the savory options such as Italian, Mexican and Indian variants that have ingredients varying from bocconcini and yellow cheddar to paneer tikka and mint mayo. Your meal is best paired with the hot Gianduja chocolate (35 percent cocoa) or the dark chocolate (57 percent cocoa).
Apart from the delicious baked goodies on the menu and the freshly roasted coffee, Cafe Zoe also whips up great spinach and chèvre crepes with stewed cherry tomatoes. They’re so good that we wish they had more crepe options. However, this crepe alone is worth a Sunday morning visit, and is best followed up by a cappuccino.
With choux pastry and harvest preserves as options, Pink Sugar at Bandra is quite a treat for dessert lovers. Slightly adventurous when compared to the other options on this list, Pink Sugar features Punjabi, Arabian and Hawaiian crepes. Sink your teeth into mutton with the Arabian version, or go ahead with cooling Labneh in the Lebanese crepe. If you don’t want to venture so far, stick to the safe chicken, cheese and jalapeño combination in the Crepe N Chi.
A fine-dining restaurant at the upscale NCPA, Amadeus has probably the most elaborate crepe preparation on this list with its Trilogy of Crepes. The offering consists of three variants – Sicilian Caponata, Spinach and Burnt Garlic, and Artichoke and Parmesan. All three are equally good, and each is a curious combination of some excellent flavors that you would rarely find in other crepes in Mumbai.
