About the restaurant
Quick, tasty, and eminently food-photographable, Instacrepes delivers the French delicacy in style, and in Soho, too! Whether you’re sweet-toothed or the savoury type, this creperie dishes up the famous thin pancakes and its sibling, the galette, from stylish premises up on Elgin Road, made fresh to order using authentic French buckwheat flour and the best local produce that Hong Kong’s markets can deliver. There’s certainly something of a French cuisine renaissance going on in Central – whether you’re not a Francophile foodie, a booking at this boutique restaurant will be well rewarded.
Hong Kong’s Instacrepes is the delicious brainchild of French cuisine expert and food traveller Rodolf Gonnet, and with such a culinary wanderer at the helm of this Soho restaurant you can count on there being more than just crepe on the menu – start with pommes frites with homemade ketchup or garlic mayonnaise, a rustic, seasonal vegetable or San Marzano tomato soup, and simple, light house or Caesar’s salads. There are even a few classic Italian pasta dishes to whet your appetite before moving onto the main event. And whatever you do don’t forget the wine!
trotting around Hong Kong’s Central districts is as thirsty work as it is hunger-inducing, so it’s thankful that Instacrepes hasn’t skimped on the beverage front. French to a tee, you can get your caffeine fix here, refresh with a San Pellegrino, or head for something stronger. Dry British Strongbow cider is great to offset a sweet crepe like the gourmet ‘Pearland’, or the classic Vanilla Love with ice cream, while a robust European red pairs well with the Beefed Up Galette and a crisp white cuts through the cheesy, lemony mixed seafood version. Act now, make a booking and wend your way to Instacrepes’ Elgin Road address for a French creperie experience you’re not likely to forget.
