When going to France, there are few things that i always want to eat and crepes are no exception. This specialty from Bretagne are so good! And you have an infinity of options for their fillings: the classic ham and cheese, smoked salmon with crème fraîche or less classic, a beef patty, like a variation on a burger.
At Cadet Rousselle, you have an extensive menu and I admit that it is a bit difficult to pick a dish as plenty of them look delicious. Mine was fairly classic: the special that is filled with ham, cheese and a sunny side egg. For the batter, I chose the one made with buckwheat (farine de Sarrazin) over regular wheat, the former being used in typical galettes. I liked it: the crepe itself was very good, a bit nutty, and there was a lot of cheese in it (gruyère).
Jodi chose the 4 cheese crepe, with regular wheat, filled with blue, Comté, emmental and goat cheese. Again, lots of cheese. In fact, I preferred that one over mine that was not really a surprise considering that I love cheese, especially when blue is in the mix.
With the crepes, we ordered a bottle of cider, a must have when eating this. And this time, we decided to try a rosé cider that seems to be a novelty, not that it did not exist before, but rather that it got more exposure since rosé became popular. And it was nice, very refreshing with a nice pink color from the red apples they use.
Last was dessert: we could not leave without a butter sugar crepe that is my favorite over a Nutella one.
A caramel beurre salé or salted caramel crepe:
And a kouign Aman with salted caramel that was fantastic. Imagine: Kouign Aman is made with the same dough as croissant but with much more butter. That, topped with a very buttery caramel, we were in heaven!
We left full after such a meal and needed a good walk after that. Cadet Rousselle has been serving crepes for many years near the city center of Grenoble and I cannot believe it was the first time I ate there. Well, it will not be the last!
Enjoy (I did)!
