[Quebec City] Casse-Crêpe Breton
Traditional Quebec cuisine is strongly influenced by French cuisine. Consequently, the consumption of crêpe is widespread in Quebec.
We went to Casse-Crêpe Breton for our first crêpe in Quebec City.
The store was lovely and you can get a clear view of the crêpe-making process if you sit by the crêpe station.
There are usually two types of crêpes: sweet crêpes made with wheat flour and slightly sweetened; and savoury “galettes” made with buckwheat flour and unsweetened. Casse-Crêpe Breton services both kinds and we ended up ordering one of each.
The texture of the crêpe was quite crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I really enjoyed it. However, Charles wouldn’t stop complaining about the crispy texture of the crêpe. He insisted that crêpes should be soft so that it would be easier to cut/eat.
Other than the issue with the crispiness, both crêpes were excellent. The savoury asparagus and mushroom crêpe was very tasty and filled with ingredients. The asparagus was nice and crunchy, and the mushrooms were cooked just enough to be soft but not to squishy and watery. The sweet crêpe was so visually appealing because it was filled with fresh strawberries. It was very fruity but not overly sweet.
Overall, Casse-Crêpe Breton is a cute little restaurant to relax and enjoy a nice light meal. It was very budget friendly and I would definitely recommend this place to others who are visiting Quebec City.
