i was at a press lunch for Pierre when a seemingly knowledgeable gentleman from a French food publication recommended Fleur de Sel as the best creperie in town. You usually can trust Frenchmen about French foods, so off I went to the building best known as "the place Cher2 is" to indulge in some savoury specimens. We had Le Super Complete and I THINK La Bressoise... everyone has Le Super Complete, if the photos on Openrice are any indication, but I was far from impressed. I think a crepe with some moisture is more up my alley, there's no fun if the crepe base isn't soaked in sauces. That said, there basically aren't too many creperies in Hong Kong (does Simplicity on Hollywood count?) so if you're in Causeway Bay and craving a crepe, it's not a bad option, if you can get a table. The space is fairly tight and was packed the day we arrived -- they tried to turn us away but we suggested we could -- gasp! -- wait for a table, and they obliged. I was kind of cranky at the end because I didn't like my crepe so I didn't bother trying the sweet options, but they did look good; I should go back for a crepe suzette before I cross this off my list. If you do go, skip Le Super Complete (don't buy the hype!) and go for one of the pricier non-basics, like anything with ratatouille. Or the galettes. Or ice cream, because you can never go wrong with ice cream.
Fleur de Sel is at 2J, Po Foo Building, 84 - 94 Percival Street, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong.
