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.
The booking was not retrieved by the staff at that afternoon. Maybe more trainings shall be conducted in the future. We ordered two crepes with honey and Nutella favours respectively. The honey one was a little too strong which I had to drink quite a lot of water afterwards. The Nutella one, however, was surprising that it was well decorated with strawberries. On the whole, it was a quite spectacular experience for such a visit.
Have crepes, chicken wings and pasta on the menu. The crepes were of decent portion however the thing that stands out the most was Nutella milkshake. It's not on the menu so you have to ask them.
Friendly and very good service. Feels like home. Dinner menu is good and flexible. I really love the savory crepes here. I would definitely recommend to friends.
