T-Swirl Crêpe (Markham)

T-Swirl Crêpe

T-Swirl Crêpe located at 1056-28 South Unionville Avenue in Markham

I have seen all of the photos of T-Swirl Crêpe floating around on instagram and thus when Coreen and I were due for a catch-up, I decided that we meet here and so we could try out these crepe creations!

T-Swirl Crêpe is located at the outside plaza at Langham Square.  It is tucked into the northeast corner of the plaza, so be sure to keep this in mind when looking for it.

T-Swirl Crêpe serves sweet and savory crepes, all nicely assembled, and definitely perfect for photo-taking!  They have a good number of tables and booths inside of the cafe for you to dine-in and there is an open kitchen space through transparent glass where you can see them making the crepes in front of you.

Coreen commented on how these crepes were all placed in glasses that looked like the rose in the Beauty and the Beast movie

T-Swirl Crepe has a good selection of sweet and savory crepes.  I chose the Okinawa Hot Dog Savory Crepe while Coreen chose the T-Swirl Fruits Cocktail.

The lady manning the cashier (and also the one who would be making our crepes) was very friendly and welcomed us into T-Swirl Crepe warmly.

I filmed the process of making the Okinawa Hot Dog Savory Crepe and the T-Swirl Fruits Cocktail sweet crepe:

The Okinawa Hot Dog savory crepe contained Okinawa hot dog, mesclun mix, julienned carrots, cheddar cheese, red onions, red peppers, corn, banana ketchup, and tofu sauce.  It was a really lengthy and thorough process whereby the lady assembling the crepe took meticulous care to make sure that the mesclun mix, hot dog slices, and the rest of the ingredients all sat perfectly in place along the half-moon of the crepe.  After all of the ingredients were laid down, she folded the crepe halfway and folded again to create a cone shape.  It was a really instagram-worthy crepe!

Biting into it, it was like eating a really healthy and leafy salad.  The Okinawa hot dog reminded me of slices of preserved sausages — nothing too special.  Thus, I might not have made the best choice in trying out this savory crepe but I still really enjoyed it and thought it was a very satisfying savory crepe.

T-Swirl Fruits Cocktail sweet crepe

The T-Swirl Fruits Cocktail sweet crepe contained sliced strawberries, sliced bananas, blueberries, raspberries, mangos, custard cream, whipped yogurt, crushed pistachio, and chocolate pearls.  This was also assembled with care and detail.  I really liked the attention she gave in making this sweet crepe.  I took a bite out of it from Coreen’s sweet crepe and immediately fell in love with its sweet taste that was full of fresh fruit!  It was a really well made crepe in which the flavours tied together so well with the fruit, chocolate, and thin crepe.

We spent the rest of the afternoon catching up and eating our crepes.  I liked that the dine-in section offered some privacy too and we could sit there for as long as we liked.

Great time catching up with these crepes in cool stands!

I’m really glad that I got to try the crepes from T-Swirl Crepe finally!  Because of my experience on this visit, I am currently led to believe that their sweet crepes may be a better choice than their savory crepes.  However, who knows.  If I return again, I will try their other crepe selections. 🙂  

One thing I do want to note is that the crepes are fairly expensive — around $9-14 after taxes for one.  Thus, that’s one reason why I can’t see myself running back any time soon to try more.  It was satisfying to eat (so fun to watch it being made too) but it was not a filling meal.
