LA CREPERIE MODERNE is a French-inspired modern cafe in Makati, specializing in crepes and galettes. It’s the sixth La Creperie branch overall but the first to finally open in Makati (the other branches are in the Mandaluyong, Pasig, and Quezon City areas).
We had our business meeting here with our Ledesma partners, and here’s our experience…
Menu: Galettes de Sarrasin | Les Gastronomiques | Gourmet Crepes Sucrees | Make Your Own Crepes | Le Petit Dejeuner, Les Soupes & Les Salades Composees | Les Pates, Hearty Meals | Ice Cream Delights, Le Jus de Fruits, Le Chocolat Chaud | Le Cafe, Les Boissons
The menu specializes in crepes and galettes but is not limited to it because they also offer a la carte dishes with rice.
The French onion soup has the right sweetness from the onion, with a generous topping of cheese.
The galettes are the savory ones with thin crepe folded into squares. A good, light appetizer with different kinds of cheese and arugula to cut through the cheesy flavor.
It’s like Tapsi-Crepe using Angus beef with salad on the side. Only thing is it’s not filling; you can order the rice version of this instead.
Prosciutto-cheese-arugula is a popular pizza flavor combination served in a gallete form.
They have good rice meals, like this fish fillet in butter with rice.
For dessert, make sure to order the Angelina’s, served with dark chocolate the size of a big coin. Mix it with the hot chocolate and a bit of whipped cream to taste. A nice chocolatey finish.
This is my wife’s personal favorite because of the distinct flavor combination of shrimp and aligue, with spinach to make it healthy. It’s bigger than the thin gallettes, and the sauce oozes out when you cut it.
A popular crepe in Nami resort in Boracay, which is owned by the same family. The crepe is simple and made to look like soft crust lumpia.
A popular and unique dessert crepe–Spanish churros in crepe form with chocolate served as a dip. You can dunk pieces of the crepe in it before eating or have it as a chocolate espresso for sipping after each bite.
We love this crepe with fresh strawberries, whipped cream, and chocolatey sauce.
It was surprisingly simple but very good–just a plain crepe sprinkled with sugar.
We recommend the Crevette, Fontina, and Sole Meuniere for your savory choices. Then order the Angelina’s, Butter and Sugar Crepe, and Super Christine Crepe for dessert. Budget about P500/head.
LA CREPERIE MODERNE is a great addition to the flourishing Leviste Food Street in Makati. 🙂
