Crazy Crepes, Chiyoda, Tokyo, Japan
イチゴチョコクランチバニラ (Strawberry Chocolate Crunch Vanilla Ice)
Okay, so crepes are not traditionally Japanese, nor are strawberries, chocolate, almonds, or vanilla ice cream. However, crepe shops are all over Tokyo’s most busiest shopping centers. Everywhere I look, I see these lovely desserts, so when a friend got one, I just had to try a bite.
She got a イチゴチョコクランチバニラ (Strawberry Chocolate Crunch Vanilla Ice), which had fresh strawberries, chocolate bits, chocolate sauce, almond slices, vanilla ice cream, and of course whipped cream. It was sweet but not overwhelmingly so. The ice cream made it cold and the strawberries refreshing. The crepe was thin and the whole thing was just a mouthful of delight.
