I love everything savoury.
But I especially things which are supposedly sweet, being made into something savoury.
Just like these crepes.
They yummy crepes are from this snack stall at the corner of the junction between Soy Street and Fa Yuen Street, Mongkok. Apart from crepes, they also sell Hong Kong-ized version of dorayaki and takoyaki.
I saw the menu, where the items are listed in three languages, Chinese, English and Korean, and couldn't help but wonder....
What the heck is "laver"?
From the Chinese version, we found out that it's seaweed.
Hmmm...cheese + tuna + ham + seaweed?
It's too weird not to order, man!
The vendor, looking very sexy in black singlet...smearing away tuna on my crepe.
Yum! Weirdly delicious. The crepe is a bit of the thick side but it does have a nice crunch and it gives a nice sweet contrast to the salty tuna plus the tangy and creamy mayo. The seaweed isn't great when it's softened. It makes it really hard to bite...I'll order something without "laver" next time.
At HK$17 (around USD2) a pop, they're such a treat!!! This one's black pepper beef, cheese and mushroom crepe in progress.
This one's absolutely delicious (why is other people's order always yummier?)
