By now signs of Valentine’s is very much felt already. You hear it, see it and feel that love is indeed in the air. And in every celebration of love, food is a common ground to share precious moments together.
Last week, I was invited by Shangri-La Plaza mall to take a peek at their preparations for Valentine’s. We had a food crawl involving six different food establishments, serving a variety of cuisines and flavors. I was literally crawling after this gastronomic event that spanned almost 4 hours! My co-foodies who joined it must’ve have been too stuffed as well.
When celebrating love, go French they say! Our second destination was more laid back, situated towards the back of the 2nd level of the Main Wing. La Creperie served us first their best selling French Onion Soup, followed by a string of their popular desserts. It was such a homey vibe sitting here while I sipped their warm cheesy soup, which had loads of bittersweet caramelized onions.
So we had my personal favorite, Salidou, a homemade salted butter caramel crepe with a dose of whipped cream on top. It was delicious in every bite, a must have when you find yourself in Shangri-La Mall. Other desserts served include Strawberry Mango Jubilee, a most likely hit to kid-like adults. It has freshly prepared sweet and sour combination of mango and strawberries on orange rum sauce; and creamy matcha crepe.
This open restaurant is quaint yet truly eye-catching with vibrant yellow interiors mixed with greens. They are definitely more than just a crepe or galette place as they also have pasta, classic French fares such as Coq Au Vin (chicken in red wine sauce) and Blanquette de Boeuf (beef in white wine, served with vegetables).
