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

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 😄
