As we were having lunch with my friend Chrystelle, we decided to try La Crêperie de Gordes, get some crêpes. When I say crêpes, I may want to say galettes as they say in Bretagne where this delicious dish is coming from. The difference? A galette is made with buckwheat (Farine de sarrazin in French) and a crêpe with bread flour (Farine de froment).
La Crêperie de Gordes is a nice place: they have a big terrace, perfect when weather permits, as it did when we went, as well as a fantastic decor inside, the theme being the Alpes and ski rather than Bretagne region. They have for instance a replica of a ski slope full of playmobil, a popular children toy.
As well as an authentic cable car where two people can eat.
On my side, I went for the three cheese one (the fromagère).
It was made of emmental, reblochon and blue cheese. I preferred this one over the one Jodi got: hers could have been better with the pear sliced in small pieces instead of half, and mixed with the blue cheese cream. Mine had lots of cheese, that was delightful. I have to mention that the galette itself was delicious, very slightly crispy.
Chrystelle ordered the Sicilienne, that had tuna in it and an egg on top. Pretty good.
For dessert, Jodi and I shared the beurre-sucre crêpe (butter and sugar), that is simple, but so good. Just smelling the butter makes it appetizing.
Chrystelle got the same but with lemon.
I tried it, but prefer the one we ordered.
With our meal, we ordered a bolée de cidre or some apple cider, a typical drink with such food.
This was a wonderful meal, not only because of the company, but also because the food was very good and at reasonable prices.
