Gus Crêperie

As I may have mentioned before I have quite the sweet tooth. So I was surprised that I actually liked the galette better than the crêpe. I had expected that I would have preferred the slightly more sweet crêpe (made from white flour) over the slightly more savory galette (made from buckwheat flour). In fact, a "complète" (a galette with cheeseham, and an egg) for lunch or dinner has become my version of French comfort food. My two favorite crêperies are Breizh Café109, rue Vieille du Temple, 75003 and Gus Crêperie (no website), 19 Rue Gustave Courbet, 75016. There has been so many reviews of Breizh Café that I don't think I could do it justice. Instead, I will tell you a bit more about Gus Crêperie. It is tucked away on a quiet street in the 16th arrondissement, but just a quick metro or bus ride from the Arc de Triomphe. The restaurant has a cozy feel with seating for probably no more than 20 at a time. The décor is kitschy (in a cool way) with plush red seats, vintage inspired mercury glass lights and whimsical wallpaper with parrots in the same bright red as the seats. Oh and the food? Well, to me it is plain old good comfort food à la française.
