As soon as we left the metro station and entered the food court we realized that there was something different at this mall. Being in a densely populated area, as you would expect the mall has a large vertical presence than horizontal one, so the food court is on the bottom level with an atrium that is capped with windows above the fourth level.
Okay, that is different, but not “blog-worthy”. What is really special was the first vendor that we saw…a crepe vendor called Le Crepe Experience. As soon as we saw the name, we immediately had to fit a stop here into our agenda of tasks in the mall.
We were both very excited about having a crepe because we both love them, and the last time we had one was on our honeymoon at Jade Mountain. As we shopped we kept recounting stories of that trip and how much we enjoyed the fruit crepes there. So, after nearly three hours of walking and shopping, with all of our objectives met we decided to fall into “the crepe zone” and tune the rest of the mall out.
By the time finished looking at and salivating over the menu we decided to share a sweet crepe called a Royal Strawberry with white chocolate. We were excited to hear that although they had peanut butter as an available filling, they kept it in the back, away from the rest of the kitchen as not to cross contaminate anything in case any customer has a peanut allergy (Woo Hoo!).
At the culmination of our crepe assembly, we felt as though we had some sort of a strong connection with the person who made our crepe, and we walked to a table with the excitement of children.
By the time we finished eating our crepe, we decided that we could more easily justify making the trek past three other malls in order to visit this one for the crepes alone. Yummy!
