“The dish was mind-blowingly good. The flavors were bold and the prosciutto melted in my mouth. The only downside is that the crepe was covered in the ingredients (literally couldn't see the crepe) rather than the ingredients being incorporated within the crepe. This isn't make-or-break for me since, at the end of the day, everything tasted delicious.” - Yelp Review
