On a previous thread Joanna caught my eye and perked taste buds with:
Mexican Crepes with Poblano Chile, Corn & Epazote with Salsa Verde au gratin with Manchego Cheese $120
Last November while visiting several cities like Aguascalientes, Guanajuato and Guad, malls, sidewalk cafes and real surprising (never experienced before NoB) “movie theaters” served up a variety of delicious crepes. Crepes in theaters must be unique to Mexico because I’ve yet to see this pleasantry NoB.
What peaks interest and gives way to Mexican charm is the way some of these little specialty eateries serve these thinly wrapped secrets meant to tantalize buds and a need to return for more. Crepe origin points toward the French Crepes Suzette which indeed casts the very much adopted European flavor of some of Mexico’s cuisine. The exact origin of these fancy thin delights is speculative, yet interesting and yes, can be a treat.
The Crepe, Joanna mentioned, indeed, sounds indigenous of Mexico’s unique creation and appetizing. Most of the ones I’ve experienced have been more universal like chocolate, banana and Nutella, caramel, fruit and other creamy fillings meant to appease the sweet draw. Although, if this vague memory of mine is serving me right, while out with friends in Aguascalientes, I remember perusing a very large assorted menu but my stomach zeroed in on the thin wrappings snagged by my relentless sweet tooth.
We look forward to Morelia, Oaxaca and other cities south. I kind of get the feeling perhaps some of these edible treats found in northern-central Mexico, may diminish traveling toward and closer to Guatemala border. Who knows ……. Ahh, adventure!
