Torrance, CA 90501
Marion Crepes, the famous patisserie from Harajuku in Tokyo, has a pop-up store inside the Torrance Mitsuwa for a limited time!!! I chanced upon it while I lunched at the food court last week, and vowed to be back during the weekend when I had more time. The pop-up store will run until 3/30/2014, and there’s a 30 minute break daily between 4pm -4:30pm.
The line was pretty long today. We waited in line for about 15-20 minutes just to place our order. Once our order was in, we waited another 5 minutes for the crepes to be made. There are only 2 workers at the pop-up store, so expect a bit of a wait.
The display case with the model crepes. There are so many choices! It’s mostly dessert crepes, with 2 different savory tuna crepes.
There’s also the option of adding additional toppings. Go for the green tea ice cream!
All of the crepes are made fresh-to-order.
We got the #16 – nutella with banana crepe, and added the green tea ice cream. The nutella crepe is a warm crepe, so they left the crepe on the pan longer – the result is a wonderful crispy wafer cookie texture. The green tea ice cream really complemented the crepe – it’s so rich and creamy! The gooey warm nutella and banana are winning combinations with the crepe. So yummy! $7.09 including tax
For sure, will be back before the pop-up store closes, so that I can try the other flavors! 🙂
