One of the highlights of my recent trip to Berlin was finding this ‘new to me’ treat called Crepes Eis. The concept is new to me but simple enough-a freshly made crepe filled with your favorite combination of fruit compote, nuts, dessert sauces and of course freshly whipped crème or ice cream.
These were fake plastic models of the different topping combinations you could order. They were all locked away in a plastic case. Not too appetizing but good for the non-Japanese and non-German speaking visitors-just point and order.
Step 1: Making the crepe. First she poured out some crepe batter on top of the circular griddle. Then she used a wooden T-shaped tool to smooth the batter out evenly on the griddle.
Look at how even the batter is. This looked easy but I think this woman has had loads of practice.
Step 2: Fill the crepe. In this step, the crepe is filled with fruit compote, nuts, dessert sauces and of course freshly whipped crème or ice cream-then wrapped up like an open-top burrito. This crepe was filled with berry fruit compote and whipped crème.
This one was filled with chocolate sauce, nuts and whipped crème.
You can get ice cream, although no one did.
Step 3: Crepe burrito. Wrap it up, put it in a napkin and pass it off to the customer.
Books-mostly in Japanese-in the back.
There was a note section in the back of the place. Lots of notes + illustrations-mostly in Japanese.
