Lunch yesterday was a little taste of France. We went into Sendai city to visit the charming Cafe Et Creperie Note, specializing in galettes and crepes (note: sorry but I’m too lazy to insert those fancy symbols è and ê when writing about French food). Galettes are buckwheat flour crepes with various savory fillings, while regular crepes are usually made with regular wheat flour and typically contain sweet fillings.
I ordered the Galette Complete course menu (1860 yen) which included an appetizer, a galette entree, dessert, and coffee.
Here’s my appetizer: a chunky pate of chicken and pork liver and walnuts.
My dad ordered the same course but selected a different appetizer: shrimp and avocado salad.
Our entrees: the classic Galette Complete with ham, soft egg, and Gruyere cheese melted inside. Served toasty warm, it was delicious and the gooey egg yolk provided the perfect sauce.
My mom ordered a galette with house-cured salmon, tomato, soft egg and sour cream.
Our dessert crepes: mine with lemon curd and ice cream and my dad’s with salted caramel sauce and ice cream. Yum!
A wonderfully unique lunch. I think France is one of those places I must visit one day just for the food.
