Crepes Belle Helene is a totally heavenly experience! It comprises soft pancakes, packed with a sweet and tangy pear mixture, all of which is laced with chocolate sauce and served with vanilla ice-cream. The filling has an awesome flavour, thanks to the perfect blend of fruity, sugary and lemony ingredients.


The pancakes too are out-of-the-world, because of the right mix of plain flour and corn flour. The chocolate sauce helps to highlight the fruity and citrusy flavours of this dessert better, while the vanilla ice-cream makes it a dessert par comparison! All in all, Crepes Belle Helene is the epitome of perfection...
