In Isahaya City, Nagasaki Prefecture, there is a spot that is popular with women. Called "Kaze-no-Mori Garden", it's a collection of unique and fashionable shops. Among those is Amelie, a restaurant serving excellent crêpes. Upon hearing this, I headed out there!

By the way, a "galette" is a crêpe using buckwheat flour.
While many crêpes are sweet, galettes served with ham or eggs often make a meal.

The lunch menu is served until 2pm.
A lunch course is offered for ¥2200 (with an appetizer, a galette, a crêpe and a drink).

The chef trained in France, so not only is it cute to look at, but the taste is also genuine.
Made of flour, the dough is fragrant and fluffy. Not too sweet, with a refined taste, I could eat it all up!

Unlike what we often see in Japan, these simple crêpes are not topped with fresh cream. However, it's available for an extra ¥50, so you may order cream as a topping if you like.
