Run by the same people behind Merci Marcel, French Fold specializes and serves up delectable crepes and galettes.

Sadly, I have not tried Merci Marcel at this time of writing but I was keen on perusing French Fold and their wide array of thin pancakes. While galettes are used for more savoury fillings, crepes tend to be geared for desserts and sweets - made with wheat flour and overall have a softer texture compared to its savoury counterpart.

Having had a filling dinner prior, I could only manage to order one crepe on the menu (Audible Gasp). Nonetheless, I decided to go with their No. 21 - a concoction of crepe topped with orange confit, white chocolate chips, black sesame and a scoop of dark chocolate sorbet from Birds of Paradise.

It might have been awhile since I've had a crepe, as I got a bit taken aback by the texture and it took some getting used to (Probably had way too many waffles and pancakes). They couldn't go wrong with the flavour combination of chocolate and orange, though I literally forgot there was white chocolate on there. I found No. 21 to have a lack of sweetness as well, having to smear the remnants of the melted chocolate sorbet to get some needed sugar.

All in all, No. 21 was a little forgettable, though I'm still keen to try their galettes or the other crepe offerings next time around perhaps.

Next, we had the 𝐌𝐒𝐧𝐒 π†πšπ₯𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐬 made of buckwheat flour, with Fourme d’Ambert cheese, honey and walnut encased within. Cut into eight bite-sized pieces, this was perfect for sharing and we loved the drizzle of honey that helped to enhance the delicate flavour of the cheese.

Lastly, we had their π‘πšπ¬π©π›πžπ«π«π² π‚π«πžπ©πž with raspberry jam, fresh berries and strawberry basil ice cream from Birds of Paradise! Easily the star of the meal, we loved how chewy and doughy the texture was. Paired perfectly with the rest of the ingredients, this was one dish we would order again and again.

Although the service was impressive for a newly opened restaurant (with it seemingly running at perfect efficiency), the taste left much more to be improved upon sadly. We felt like we were brought to opposite ends of the spectrum, with a disappointing start to the meal but an excellent end to it πŸ˜‚

This was No.06: Goat Cheese, Tomato Chutney, Basil, Roasted Bell Peppers ($16). So simple, yet so, so fulfilling. It’s a flavour medley that really dances well together. Can I just add that galettes are a whole new realm compared to crΓͺpes? Please try it if you haven’t.

One of my favorite crepe places in Singapore:) love the variety and crispier dough finish!

Wheat flour crepe is thin, chewy & dense; with raspberry jam, fresh berries & strawberry basil ice cream; the ice cream taste very light & refreshing with some fragrant from the mild basil taste; quite sweet but complement the plain crepe well; love the natural sweetness & tinge of sour from the fresh fruits; a good sweet-ending crepe dish..
