I really like crêpes and I’m all the time in search of new crepe locations to strive in Beirut. Mathieu opened earlier this yr in Mar Mikhael a block from EDL and makes a few of the finest crepes I’ve had in Beirut. It’s a small properly embellished store with all kinds of crepes and is ideal for a fast chew, after-drinks snack or for supply.
Most crêpe pop-up outlets right here give attention to Nutella & candy crepes however Mathieu’s salty crepes are literally higher than the candy ones. In truth, I virtually all the time get one among two salty crêpes after I cross by, the Poulet Pistou or the Ham & Cheese.
The Poulet Pistou (LL11,000) is a must have. It comes with marinated chunks of rooster breast topped by crispy layers of melted cheese and Mathieu’s signaled pistou sauce (pesto + mayo).
So far as candy crepes are involved, I like to recommend the Noir Orange (LL10,000). It’s 70% darkish chocolate with orange peels and cointreau on high. What I really like most about Mathieu is the packaging and the way the crepes are usually not lower in small squares however fold into triangles that you could eat on the go.
The place is clear, the workers is tremendous pleasant and the costs are affordable when in comparison with the standard you’re getting and the way massive the portion is.
