Thai Street Food “Tokyo Crepe” healthier recipe – gluten free snack

One of my favorite street sweets in Thailand is ” Tokyo Crepes”. I don’t know why they are called “Tokyo” because they are totally different from Japanese crepes. The crepes are quite crunchy and have cream inside.


(the picture is taken in Bangkok, somewhere on the street)

You can find them on the street in Thailand and we ate a lot of them while we were traveling. Whenever I eat new food and if I like it, I MUST try making/cooking it at home. So now I am back in Melbourne, I made them at my home.

When I make them myself, I can make them so much healthier. See the colour of the green ones from Thailand…↑↑ They are green tea cream, but obviously contain fake colouring in them.

I used my organic Matcha tea powder instead↓↓ Also, I made them with much less sugar  and 100% gluten free.

    One of my colleague once made me eat crepe, ever since then I admire them. The crepe taste better thin and crispy or slightly thick just like omelet.
