Crêpes sucrées et crêpes salées

I've shared about my love of crepes once before, and in Paris, they did not disappoint. In Paris, you can get crepes as street food, or you can sit in a café and order them on a plate.

Our first night in Paris, we stopped at Crêperie de Cluny on our way back to the hotel. We were overwhelmed. You can get a crepe with anything you want: nutella, jam, booze, fruit, chocolate, cheese, ham, EGGS! Thank goodness restaurants are open so late in Paris... We decided on a nutella crepe with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Heavenly.

Our second day in Paris was spent by the Louvre. I say "by" the Louvre because we did not go inside. Dustin and I decided we'd rather see more of the city, than spend most of one day inside a museum; also, I had already been to the Louvre and did not remember it being a very "Dustin" place.

We took our pictures, and then went for a nice stroll through the gardens.

We eventually caved to one of the many crepe vendors along the way, and decided to try a savoury crepe: une crêpe salée. The ham and cheese crepe was even better than the nutella crepe from the night before. And not just because I prefer salty foods over sweet. This one was made with a cheese that was full of flavour (no mozzarella here!) and it was warmed until the crepe was just a little crispy...

Later in our trip, I had tried one more crêpe salée and it just wasn't the same. There was too much cheese (there is such a thing) and there was no crispy crust. Instead of delicately placing it on a (paper) plate already cut in half, this crepe was rolled up into a cone shape and left to soggify in its own grease. Okay -- it wasn't that bad. Still tasty, but I fear that no crepe in the world will ever live up to my first crêpe salée experience.
