Visiting La Creperie was a lesson in Lebanon's gourmet history.
This place, it seems, has been rocking Jounieh, the hip town north of Beirut, since 1968 (even though this olive tree welcoming its guests probably dates back to 1698).
It also seems to have been the hangout of choice for ma cousine Lida during her high school days.
La Creperie, it appears, is known globally. It is winner of awards. It has a secret cave that is opening next week. And I have never even heard of it until now (guess I was not hip enough for Jounieh during my Lebanon days).
One walks through stone walled maze that brings you to a large fantasy land of elegance, beauty and heritage that is surrounded by patios with some of the most beautiful views of Lebanese shore lands.
Friendly, fast service and a manager that was understanding, accommodating; but I should have worked harder on playing the tourist card to get him to show me the infamous cave.
The restaurant serves a variety of savoury and sweet crepes as well as a full menu of other delicacies.
A perfectly made silky crepe stuffed with artichoke, cheese and bechamel followed by another perfectly made one with melting chocolate and bananas.
A place to visit for sure.
