Le French Wrap @ Publika

We're calling it right here: Crepe mania has officially hit KL. Le French Wrap in Publika is the city's second new purveyor of Gallic-inspired pancakes this month, hot on the heels of Bangsar's La Creperie de Caroline.

 Fresh crepes hand-crafted to order, a softer, more sumptuous substitute for pita wraps.

 All rolled up for convenient takeaway & easy eating. Savory & sweet renditions are both available, costing between RM6 & RM18; folks can either customize their own crepes or choose from a selection of about a dozen different recipes.

 'Romance en Provence,' warmly & bountifully stuffed with grilled chicken, truffle cream, bechamel sauce, cherry tomatoes & romaine lettuce.

 'Le Roman': steamed spinach, emmental cheese, sauteed mushrooms & fire-roasted capsicum.

 'Moulin Rouge': Valrhona dark chocolate, fruits of the forest, whipped cream, chocolate chips & praline croquantine. Remarkably rich.

 'Le Secret Garden': Apple compote, house-blended cream, oatmeal, cinnamon crumble & roasted almond flakes. Awesomely addictive.

 Le French Wrap serves coffee & tea but no wine, so walk over to Ben's Independent Grocer & smuggle over a couple of half-bottles.

 Only three or four tables here. Le French Wrap is near the escalator outside BIG's supermarket, but the kiosk is not immediately obvious; it pays to pay attention.
