L’ami Malo – French creperie

I recently found out that there are two types of crepes; crepes and galettes. Turns out that what I used to refer to as ‘savoury crepes’ are really known as galettes and the wrap is usually made with buckwheat flour filled with savoury fillings. What I used to refer as ‘Sweet crepes’ are just crepes and the wrap is made with the most commonly known thin pancake with sweet fillings 😅

Having had the most amazing crepe in Paris (just a simple crepe drizzled with homemade caramel sauce, that sauce though 😍) I’ve been trying to find a good crepe/galette restaurant in London.

Let me introduce you to L’ami Malo. 

Starter


Above: Maki roll with avocado , tomato, salsa, baby gem lettuce, cashew nuts & sour cream wrapped with galette.

Such a pretty dish and also tasty too! This was super fresh and great as a small starter.

Main


Above: duck confit galette with braised red cabbage, caramelised pear, tender stem broccoli and red wine jus. 

The duck was cooked perfectly, it was super tender and the meat slid right off the bone, with a crispy skin to boot! You must be wondering where the galette comes in, well, interestingly the galette is rolled up and filled with braised red cabbage underneath the duck 😄 The caramelised pear was the perfect combination with the duck plus, tenderstems are always the better cousin of broccoli 😜

Dessert

Above: crepe wih soufflé lemon, blueberries & raspberries.

This tasted as beautiful as it looked 😍 I’m usually not a massive fan of sour tasting food but this wasn’t too sour at all. In fact, because it’s in soufflé form it was sweet and creamy 😊

We paired the above with a lovely red Pinot. Perfect date place or small-medium groups for a good catch up over delicious food 😄
