Crepes? At a Mall?

Yes, even I was surprised when I happened to go to the Sherman Oaks Fashion Square...ooops....Westfield Fashion Square the other day. I am not a big fan of "Food Court" dining options, but a new place had opened up and it looked intriguing.

Crepe X-press makes all style of typical French crepes including savory and sweet varieties. Three traditional crepe grills front the shop so you can see exactly how they are being made and the ingredients that are being used.

Our crepes were excellent and the service was fast and efficient. They even went a little out of the way to serve the customer. I asked for no tomatoes on my turkey, cheese and béchamel crepe, but the cook asked it I might like something else, perhaps fresh spinach leaves instead. He was right. It was an excellent addition and one I probably wouldn't have bothered asking for on my own.

If you are in the neighborhood, stop by Crepe X-press and try them out. You just might be pleasantly surprised.

I liked the crepe with nutella, which was excellent. The chicken and mushroom crepe was a bit disappointing, as the chicken was very dry and tough. The crepe itself was tasty. I think if they can just improve the meat they use, it'll be one heck of an experience.

I had a Voila with Turkey, Spinach leaves (instead of tomatoes) and cheese the other day it was wonderful. I asked them if they changed the turkey they were using and they said that they had. The flavor was much better than before (even though it was already good) and I wanted to make sure I told them.

As a general rule, talk to your retailers. Tell them what you like and what you don't. Ask them questions. This is the way they will improve their service and their food.
