Tips for choosing the best crêperie in Paris
There is no set of tips to choose better or worse. I simply must tell you that, if you are in Paris, you will taste the best crêpes. The traditional recipe is unique and each place will make it in its own way, but you will rarely be disappointed. What I can tell you is the best thing that a crêpe must have to be well done.
There are several things to keep in mind. In France and for the most part, most crêpes or failing that, most galettes (savory) are usually made of buckwheat or wheat dough. First of all, a crêpe must taste buttery. If it has that taste, it is one of the main characteristics of an authentic French crêpe.
Secondly, the crêpe should be crunchy when you eat it. If it does not have that texture, or if it is soft or chewy, it is not a real crêpe.
