Me Crepe (Metrotown, Burnaby)

Tucked away from foot traffic at Old Orchard Mall is Me Crepe. It looks like they should be kaput from the location where they are hard to spot, but they appear to do a brisk take-out business if what we saw at lunch on Sunday is any indication. And pretty brisk walk-in as well.

Before I get into the review, to better understand why Me Crepe seems to do well, realize that there are foods that are simple but tasty. Things don't have to be fancy to be tasty! Like a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Or a nice cookie. Or a chewy chcolatey two-bite brownie.
And if you have a craving for it, you can get sold a $6 scoop of ice cream that supposedly has various attributes to justify how it should cost more than a tub of ice cream at the supermarket. You might not even be enough of an ice cream connoisseur to tell the difference but you'll pay for it maybe because everyone else is doing just that.

If you go to Me Crepe and deconstruct the crepe you get, you will likely be disappointed. I know I was horribly disappointed. Until I started eating it and realized that it had a simple, familiar, tastiness. What deconstructing it did for me was make me unhappy that the ingredients didn't match up to the $9.95 I paid for it. But was it tasty? Yup.

Souryuu ($9.95) Japanese style mayo with beef sausage
  • "Beef sausage" was ONE supermarket wiener cut in half for both sides of the crepe. OMG.
  • There are crunchy chunks of deep fried something that add mild bulk and fun crunch. Might just be deep fried flour for all I know. But it makes the crepe fun to eat. Definitely more fun that a wiener wrapped in a thin pancake.
  • Pretty big but flat crepe. Sort of standard though. Works out to be more filling than a burger.
Place looks dingy but there was definitely an attempt at decor.
Service kinda spotty. My friend asked for water but it never came.
