October 1st was a special day at Walt Disney World Resort as it kicked off the Most Magical Celebration for the 50th anniversary of the parks in Florida. While many people flocked to the Magic Kingdom, we made our way over to Epcot as it was also the grand opening of Remy's Ratatouille Adventure and La Creperie de Paris in the France Pavilion in World Showcase.
|Salade Maison: mixed greens, tomatoes (no tomatoes) onions & vinaigrette|
|Soupe du Jour: it was potato and leek today|
The salad was crisp and refreshing with just the right amount of dressing. Nothing too fancy at all, which was really just lovely. The soup was comforting yet surprisingly light on flavor, setting you up for the meal ahead. Also, I really just loved the bowl it was served in.
In no time it was time for another round of drinks and our savory crepes, otherwise known as galettes. These are made with a buckwheat flour which I enjoyed, but if you prefer a lighter crepe you can request they be made with the dessert crepe batter. We ordered the Chevre and the Savoyarde but the Classique was also recommended and seemed to be very popular and well liked as well from tables around us.
|Savoyarde: raclette cheese, onion, imported Bayonne ham|
|Chevre: goat cheese, spinach, walnuts|
Both of these crepes were honestly so good, but for me the star was the savoyarde. That imported ham was just something special and really elevated the whole dish. The crepes weren't overly filled so there was a great balance between filling and crepe with every bite with familiar yet unique flavors. The walnuts on the chevre dish added a great bit of crunch and texture as well.
While we were already starting to get full, it was time for our sweet crepes to come. We once again went with our server's recommendations and went with the Gourmande and the Melba, adding a shot of Grand Marnier to the Melba for a little extra kick. You can also add whipped cream or ice cream to any crepe for an additional charge as well.
|Melba: peach, red berries sauce, almonds|
|Gourmande: hazelnut chocolate spread, whipped cream|
