I've always walked by La Creperie in Shang Mall, but I never got around to trying it. Late last year, I saw IG pics from friends that it had opened a branch in San Juan. I honestly had no idea where in San Juan.
So to my delight, it was right beside Toribox! We just had dinner there and I convinced my Panget to try out La Creperie. The main reason was not because I wanted to try it finally (since walking by it for years) but because of an IG pic of their Frozen Hot Chocolate on my friend Sab's feed.
I have to be honest, after watching the movie Serendipity (Kate Beckinsdale & John Cusak) I became curious on this place called Serendipity 3 that served the famous Frozen Hot Chocolate. I HAD to be curious, because isn't it ironic to serve a frozen 'hot' chocolate? I also saw this drink being featured on Oprah (she was raving about it and FYI a cocoa mix of this is being sold on Amazon!)
And so, there we had our dessert. I ordered the Frrrozen Hot Chocolate and them some crepes.
I liked the Frrrozen Hot Chocolate, maybe because it was sweet. My Panget said it was too sweet for him, but I liked it! I am no choco expert, I used to hate chocolate - remember? But this one, I like! I'm sure some will say that its not the 'real' hot choco, blah blah - but I liked it! The crepes we ordered were just okay. I was actually expecting it to be wonderful because the interiors looked good! But I guess - the interiors compensated the so-so taste.
