Creperie Titia is a casual, lovely little place in Dartmouth to stop by for – you guessed it – sweet and savoury crepes on a sunny afternoon in Dartmouth, Devon.
We shared a selection of savoury crepes for lunch right after Huiting’s commissioning at the naval college, and what was kind of distinctive about these savoury crepes was how light and thin the skin was, so that the flavours don’t get lost in all the flour, egg and butter used. At about £7-£8 for each crepe, which could well be a full meal, it is pretty decently priced!
As you can tell, the whole concept of it is quite casual and fuss-free, and I liked the informal cafe vibes that it exuded during the lunch-tea period that day. I have a really big weakness for savoury crepes and pancakes because they seem to combine the best of both worlds to me : it’s like you can have dessert AND main course at the same time! I love salty, savoury food, and I like things sweet as well, so when they come together the effect is pretty titillating (sighs in contentment).
Mushroom, Spinach and Tomato Crepe
Don’t be deceived by its boring veggie name, for this combination actually worked really well and was a great complement to the other crepe that we tried! The tomatoes give the dish a good tang, and the texture of the slightly mushy spinach and button mushrooms went well together (:
Egg and smoked salmon crepe
My personal favourite (who doesn’t LOVE smoked salmon?) It’s the perfect savoury complement to slightly sweet, thin and springy crepe. Also note the half-done texture of the egg; just the way I like it (:
If you ever stop by in this lovely seaside town of Dartmouth and find yourself itching for a bite during lunch time, or even tea time, you should know where to stop by (: On a side note, I’ve heard that their coffee is also pretty good, and I’m quite sure there’s no harm sharing a dessert crepe (or two!) with a good friend.
