Crepe Des Amis - New Westminster

  Yesterday I was lurking around New Westminster after eating at Taqueria Playa Tropical hehe...and before heading home I decided to make a visit to the Quay! Woww, this place has changed SO much! Now it's pretty much been gentrified/hipsterfied LOL!! I remember coming here 6 years ago and I don't remember it being like this (or maybe I just wasn't that *aware* back then LOL...I was just an ignorantly delusional highschool kid afterall!)

  I checked out the "food court", okay it's not really a food court, it's a bunch of restaurants in an open area lol...and it's freaking awesome!! Think Granville Island Market, but smaller! I think I've found my new go to place guys! I'll definitely be frequenting this place over the next few weeks, which means I'll have reviews for you all to read! :D

  Everything looked so good but since I was still pretty full from lunch, I wanted something light, and sweet haha. No, I didn't end up with dessert haha! I ended up with something savoury, so I technically had a *second* lunch LOL!  

 They even have a health food store similar to Whole Foods there too! Now I don't have to go all the way to the West End for health food!! I also bought some yummy organic hot chocolate there lol! When I got home I was so excited (I haven't had hot chocolate in a year lol) and I made some right away in the microwave with almond milk (professional I know) and it was delishh! :D

 
SIGNATURE DISHES
    Crepe Des Amis specializes in French style savoury and sweet crepes! They're run by a french husband and wife team! Their two most popular flavours are their Mediterranean and Quebec (maple syrup, ham, and cheese) flavours!

SERVICE 1.5/5 stars
   There's only one person taking orders, running the store, and making orders! When I was scanning through the menu, the lady just stared at me blankly. I was a little indecisive, she assured me to take my time, but I could tell she was impatient LOL because it totally showed in her face haha! When I was ordering a couple of other people also came up to order, and she was ALOT friendlier towards them haha! She was laughing and smiling with the other customers but when it was my turn she turned cold again :( Guess she just didn't like me? haha

AMBIANCE - Casual
  This place operates like a food court, they only have 2 bar seats so if you want to sit down, you have to go over to the communal seating area in the food court! It would be nice if they added more bar stools since their counter is pretty long haha cause I like sitting on high chairs LOL!

PRICE - $/$$/$$$
   The cheapest crepe is around $5, with the savoury crepes starting at $6! Kinda pricey for what it is, it's basically just a wheat crepe wrapped with ingredients LOL. Not really worth the money but it's still really fun and novel! Not really filling enough for a meal lol, so you'll probably be hungry afterwards!

VALUE - Poor/Okay/Good/Great
    This place is around the same price as other crepes place in the city. Value wise, it isn't that great. Not really sure if I can really justify spending $7.25 on a crepe since I can probably get a meal for the same price. But I do have to commend them for using fresh ingredients though, it really shows!

The Mediterranean $7.25
3/5 stars
  Even though I was craving something sweet I decided to get their mediterranean crepe because it's their most popular flavour lol! The mediterranean consists of roasted chicken, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, cheese and mediterranean dressing!
 The crepe itself was really well made: soft, and paper thin! The outside was perfectly toasted and not soggy at all! The crepe came out warm with the cheese completely melted. There was a substantial amount of ingredients and everything tasted really fresh. The chicken was really lean but still moist nonetheless! Flavour wise, it was a bit lacking. There was sauce on the crepe, but not in the filling, so half of the crepe was completely bland. The sauce was really good though, I wish she would've put more! On the up side...I did feel really healthy eating this LOL!!
They have sweet crepes too! :D (Click to Enlarge)
Here's a look at their savoury crepes!

OMG...they even have floats!! Vegan floats!! :O
