I felt completely shipped to Brittany (France) the other day I went to dinner at Breizh Crêperie Restaurant with a group of friends. First of all, the lady in charge gave us a full explanation about the differences between galette and the classic French crepe. They serve galettes. Typical from Brittany (France’s North West). The flour has the secret. The galettes are prepared with buckwheat flour. It’s like wheat, but dark. It is thought to be a cereal but it’s not and it’s rich in iron. Definitely, I tried the one with emmental cheese, ham and bechamel which was very tasty
Come on you are in Brittany this night! Ask for a bottle of Brittan cider. It is served in clay glassess so you don’t have to pour it as the Asturian one (North of Spain).
The picture above is the galette made from baked apple and cinnamon I had for dessert. Yummy.
It is located in Malasaña neighbourhood. Do not missunderstand Brittany with Great Britain. Yes, that French region in the North West has a similar name. They spoke Breton, a Celtic language with a mix of French.
