A while back, I got a $25 group buy certificate to Doux Crepes in Yaletown. It's actually a bit of a walk from the Yaletown skytrain station, but it was a pretty nice morning. Mel and I spotted a lot of dogs on the way there!
Anyway, I was in the mood for some ham, so I got the French crêpe with cheese, honey ham, fried eggs, and dijon mayo ($8) from the brunch menu. I didn't really taste the dijon mayo much, but the crêpe was soft with a bit of chewiness to it, which I liked. Since the honey ham was actually quite sweet, it was both salty and sweet at the same time. This was my first time having a savoury crepe on a plate (I have had ones wrapped in cones, Japanese style), and I liked it -- especially loaded with ketchup.
Mel also enjoyed her Californian crêpe with cheese, turkey, bacon, avocado, fried eggs, and ranch ($8.40). I wasn't paying attention that much, but I feel like it didn't have that much bacon. It had a reasonable amount of avocado, which I love.
I also got a matcha latte, which I didn't like at all. Seriously, I think I've been spoiled by the afternoon matcha lattes from Sajin's Green Tea Cafe (where it's insanely cheap, too). I'm not really as knowledgeable on lattes as Doro, but I could tell this foam was not good. The bubbles were huge and it was just awful. I wonder (not really curious, but just saying) how other non-tea lattes would pan out.
