Crepes are a truly versatile food. Pack on the proteins and vege and you have yourself a main dish. Slather on the ice cream and syrup and it becomes a dessert. Crepes first originated in Brittany, Northwest France, and basically means ‘pancake’ in French. It is now a well known and loved dish around the world and Malaysia offers a wide array of choices for crepe lovers. Here are 8 must try places for crepes around Klang Valley.

Strangers at Forty7 burst onto the culinary scene in July 2014 and has garnered a steady cult following among crepe lovers. Known for both its savoury and sweet crepes, it also strives to create new seasonal dishes to complement festivities and just change things about a bit. Choose from the list of savoury crepes (complete with punny names like Shore To Please, Not Your Local Beef, A Hen’s Crush) to quell that hungry tummy of yours or if it is your sweet tooth that needs satisfaction then browse along the list of sweet crepes which has the conventional chocolate and vanilla ice cream to the more oriental offering of Japanese sweet potato, coconut sago and gula melaka.

2. La Creperie de Caroline

3. Salon Du Chocolat
