The mmm-yoso!!! guys, Kirk and ed (from Yuma) are both having a busy time this week, so Cathy is going to blog, since she has been eating and taking photos the last few weeks while they were blogging and has a few meals to share. This post is short.
Hi again. If you've been in the parking lot at the corner of Convoy and Ostrow, which is a mall housing an international compendium of eateries anchored by Nijiya Market, Mignon Pho+Grill, Okan, Sage French Cake, Spicy House and Koon Thai Kitchen as well as Sunrise Buffet, Subway and Palomino Taco Shop #2, you have probably seen Cafe Hue (and it's predecessor in that space, Red Berry Yogurt).
I have been fascinated by the "Lunch Crepe Special" sign hanging over the doorway and decided to finally stop in. [Actually, The Mister and I had stopped in when Cafe Hue first opened a few years ago and shared a pretty lousy snack consisting of a cup of stale espresso and a stale, warm waffle topped with whipped cream. I didn't want to write a post about that experience.] So we walked in and ordered (and were asked to choose from a variety of sauces when we ordered the crepes; most salad dressing flavors), paid and sat down.
A very good cup of espresso was prepared, a good sign of things to come. The interior is filled with tables, chairs and a few couches along with board games and books for people to share.
The description of my order, the "healthy veggie" ($4.25), mentioned lettuce and spinach and so I figured there was a small salad on the side...but the salad was inside the crepe and my 'sauce' order of balsamic Italian was spread on top of the lightly cooked flavorful batter crepe.
Actually, there was a light layer of cheese cooked into the crepe and then the lettuce, spinach and corn-yes corn- was placed inside the crepe. Unusual and a very nice little lunch.
We also had ordered the $3.95 crepe- ham and cheese and (not knowing) asked for Thousand Island as the sauce. This combination of flavors did work. The photo of a cross section of this crepe didn't work.
Anyhow, I am still on my quest for a perfect crepe and the ones at Cafe Hue are in the running. They serve a great variety of beverages, gelatos, crepes and waffles. It's a nice place to sit and catch up with friends.
