La Galette Électrique – Electric pancakes

This is a crêperie (pancake restaurant) unlike any other. Having spent an evening here last weekend, it reminded me of what I love about Paris and immediately gave me the idea to write about it. While many crêperies try to remind you of their region of origin (Brittany), this restaurant cuts off crêpes from their traditional image.

Its walls are decorated with art and more importantly, the evenings are enchanted with live music, so no need to look out for another place to go after finishing your meal. And so it happened that I came here to listen to Latin American musicians playing African music, while being served by an international staff, while being surrounded by French friends.

It is these kind of situations that make me feel very much at home in Paris: you can take a little bit of your own culture and a little bit of the French and that will do. The menu is a mix as well, of traditional galettes (salty pancakes made of buckwheat) with classic ingredients such as emmenthal cheese and andouille (don’t ask), as well as eclectic recipes with ingredients stolen from kitchens abroad. The dessert (sweet crêpes made of a different kind of dough) are delicious, too.
