Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to be in Boquete at lunchtime. I have had several people tell me that they really enjoyed La Crepe on the road toward Cafe Ruis. Yesterday was the day I got to try it.
The inside is bright and friendly, with a French flair.
There were so many thing to try, I couldn’t decide. That being the case, I went for the special of the day, which included a glass of wine.
The bread that came out before the meal was excellent.
One person ordered a strawberry fruit drink. I tried it. Super!
My meal started off with a pureed vegetable soup. Yummy!
It was followed by my brochette. The sauteed vegetables were perfect and the mashed potatoes were too.
Another at out table ordered a ground beef crepe. The crepes are huge! This one was only half eaten and the rest came home with us. I had it for dinner. Wonderful!
The last in our party had a salmon crepe and raved about it. She had recently returned from Switzerland and said it was as good as the best she had in her visit to Paris.
My meal finished with the house flan and it, like everything else, was great. Flan is a simple dessert, but all restaurants flans are not the same.
What a pleasant surprise to find a quality french restaurant in Boquete.
The special was $12.00 and I thought it was worth the money. The crepes were amazingly priced at $6/7 and for the size, I considered them a bargain.
There are many more visits that will be required to try other items on the menu.
Next to the restaurant is a nice shop with paintings and other things. If you stop in, tell them you learned about them on Chiriquí Chatter.
