Radioactive

Café Breton is the only restaurant I know of in Metro Manila that specializes in crêpes and galettes. I've posted a photo of its interior in Sweet and savory in Bretagne and a photo of two of its galettes in Galettes. Now here is a photo of one of its crêpe chefs. I can watch them make those ultra-thin pancakes for hours—their speed and control is absolutely fascinating.

Not the job for me, the place would be a mess in seconds! Lol!... but I also like to watch them in action :-)

Thanks for the information about buying things there and the costs compared to here in the states. I am always interested in computers and laptops and I know they cost a lot of money here. I just thought they might be brands in your country, made there, that are less costly then here. I know Japan has some home grown ones that are really light years ahead of us and they are cheaper. Or that used to be the case about 5 years ago.

Is there a website in English that sells computers made in your country?

And I hasten to point out, that this photo reminds me of all those places that used to sell steaming noodles on the streets in Japan. It is a nice shot.

I like Cafe Breton myself. Shame the one in Alabang is no longer open for business.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments. Enjoy the weekend!

You are so talented at capturing restaurant scenes and food-related shots! This is marvelous. Makes me hungry, too...

Oh, I like the flurry of hand motion you showed in this picture, Hilda - it goes well with the description of speed and control you said about her.

Oh, and btw, and crepes? The mere mention of its name makes me hungry ...
