Viva La Crepe! in Union Square
Whenever I’m in the Union Square vicinity craving something sweet, I feel like my choices are either Max Brenner or…Max Brenner. A few days ago after dinner in the area, my friends and I were trying to figure our game plan for dessert and we just as easily gave up and began heading for some chocolate by the bald man. We stopped in our tracks though when we caught a glimpse of Viva La Crêpe!
Viva la Crepe
The original outpost of Viva actually did start in Paris and grew to work its way stateside. They have a full savory and sweet menu, but the savory one might as well have not existed for us at that moment. We were busy trying to decide between dark chocolate, nutella, white chocolate, vanilla or chocolate ice cream, berries or almonds, etc. etc. We settled on a nutella/banana/almond/walnut/vanilla ice cream combo and a heavenly dark chocolate/berries/banana/vanilla ice cream one.

The crepes are served in a little pocket you can hold while you munch. Just a word of advise if you’re getting it with ice cream, ask for it on the side . It makes devouring it a LOT easier.

The crepes were nothing short of scrumptious. My friends kept commenting on how much better and fresh the vanilla ice cream was compared to the usual. I loved my crepe but felt like I could have probably done without the nuts (it made it a tad dry). But overall, the crepes were a good mix of soft and crunch, sweet and flavorful. Just a thought in case you’re over the fondue and chocolate pizzas!
