In Nagasaki, An Authentic Crêpe Shop Straight out of a Movie: Amelie
In Isahaya City, Nagasaki Prefecture, there is a spot that is popular with women. Called "Kaze-no-Mori Garden", it's a collection of unique and fashionable shops. Among those is Amelie, a restaurant serving excellent crêpes. Upon hearing this, I headed out there!
An Adorable Place in the Middle of the Forest
Wheat crêpes start from ¥500.
Buckwheat galettes start ¥750.
Drinks are from ¥400.
The Interior is also a Lovely Space!
It's a fashionable interior.
The warm, home-like atmosphere is calming.
Even the menu is cute!
Come here and you may forget your age without realizing it (lol)!
By the way, a "galette" is a crêpe using buckwheat flour.
While many crêpes are sweet, galettes served with ham or eggs often make a meal.
The lunch menu is served until 2pm.
A lunch course is offered for ¥2200 (with an appetizer, a galette, a crêpe and a drink).
Exquisite Crêpes Prepared in the Authentic French Style!
I first wanted to try something simple, so I ordered the Butter and Sugar Crêpe. It was so delicious!
The chef trained in France, so not only is it cute to look at, but the taste is also genuine.
Made of flour, the dough is fragrant and fluffy. Not too sweet, with a refined taste, I could eat it all up!
The royal road of crêpes leads to chocolate and banana.
Unlike what we often see in Japan, these simple crêpes are not topped with fresh cream. However, it's available for an extra ¥50, so you may order cream as a topping if you like.
This crêpe features bitter chocolate and almonds. The almonds are so fragrant!
At this restaurant, I felt just like a young girl, such as the main character in the French film Amelie. In a way, you could say it's a "dangerous" place (lol)!
They're so cute!
The tea was so tasty that I bought some tea leaves!
This place could win a young girl's heart.
I'll be sure to try the galette next time!

Take a stroll in the "Kaze no Mori" Forest
The other shops are also fashionable and popular.
"Kaze no Mori" was developed over many years on the former grounds of a mandarin orange orchard. Just by strolling in this forest, you can feel healed.
