Crepe Connection, UB City
October 31, 2011
After sampling the Crepes in Delhi, I wanted more and since Subway (the only other affordable eatery for a college student in UB City) was too crowded, my friends agreed.
I called for a Mushroom Crepe for myself. The description promised zucchini and mushroom but I could not taste any zucchini in the dish served. The crêpe was not the authentic french version but was more of a dosa. It was a little thicker than needed and had a slightly sweetish tinge to it, which would have been okay for a sweet crêpe but dint fit the bill of “savoury”. The sauce however was well made and was served inside with the veggies which left the outer dough quite dry. The whole thing was cut in bite-sized pieces and was devoured before everyone realized.
My friends called for the Ratatouille Panini and the Veggie Panini. The Ratatouille Panini was like a veg sandwich with a light white sauce in it but had nothing too special about it. The Veggie Panini was easily the best item on the table and tasted real good. It had a generous serving of both mushrooms and mashed potatoes which were well made. The veggies were covered in a Bechamel Sauce which was made just right with distinct flavours of cheese and dried herbs. Both the sandwiches were very light.
Verdict: This place will not empty your wallet; however, the quantities you get will leave your stomach light, if not empty
Pull-me-back factor: the Veggie Panini.
Presentation of food: 2.75/5
Preparation/taste of food: 2/5
Cost- value factor: Our bill for all that came to Rs. 180 per head (approx). The cost-value factor is maybe a 2/5 seeing how we practically only called for veg sandwiches and I’ve eaten better for the price.
