Favorite Dishes: Nutella Crêpe at A La Folie
I'm a member of the Nuts for Nutella Club
Crêpe cravings have apparently seized me, as I only recently touted
savory ham and cheese crêpes at Otentic on Washington
Avenue. And now I'm back to share my enthusiasm for A La Folie's Nutella crêpe.
The batter here is made with buckwheat flour, which lends a better
flavor than plain white flour. The hazelnut spread (over 50 hazelnuts per 13-ounce jar!) is folded
within the delicate pancake and drizzled on top. At $4.95, it's about
as good a deal as you'll find for dessert, an accompaniment to
afternoon café au lait, or even as a sweet start to your day. Plus A La
Folie recreates the French café scene, indoors and out, as well as
anyone in Miami: French owners (from Toulouse), French ambiance,
French accents, French food and French service -- meaning zee crêpe
will come out when zey get around to it, no? The second locale on the
west side of South Beach serves equally good fare, but doesn't feel
quite as Parisian.
