Japan Travel

Marion Crepes – Tokyo

Although crepes originated in France, it’s a popular dessert in Japan, especially in Harajuku. In fact there’s 2 famous crepe stores that face each other in the middle of busy Takeshita Street. One is Angels Heart and the other is Marion Crepes, T & I lined up at the later.

Marion Crepes has a big shelf filled with plastic models of the most popular crepes, perfect for tourists with like myself! During our wait in the line, my eyes darted around the display until I decided to stick to the OG No.1 Crepe. What’s in the No.1 Crepe? Custard, whipped cream and vanilla ice cream. That’s right basically cream in 3 different forms! 
Ordering is very simple and easy: say the number of your crepe, pay, take your receipt and wait for your order to be called.
No. 1 Crepe ¥470

The first thing I noticed when I received my crepe was the size. This thing is massive! Luckily you are provided with a spoon to help you tackle the toppings that are balanced precariously. The actual crepe is cooked just right. Toppings somehow work harmoniously and is surprisingly not too sweet.

Will I Return?

Yes! If I visit Harajuku again, I’ll wait in line and get myself a crepe.

    We love Japanese crepes and yes have tried these two places. It was really hard to decide which ones to order though! 😛
