Ever since Starbucks opened along the Nguyen Thi Nghia – Cach Mang Thang roundabout, lots of coffee shops and restaurants have sprout up!
A few months ago, I started seeing a new pizza place, Le Crespo. I even pointed it out to hubby and wanted to try it out.
And so, yesterday, I was finally able to try the food at Le Crespo with my good friend, Gigi.
The place is owned by Norwin Crespo and his wife, Ofelia. And the first thing you’d notice is its rustic and earthy interiors.
The kitchen with the wood fire oven is designed with bricks and mismatched tiles.
Norwin scoured the city of materials.
The table of this one below was from a ship —
While this one is actually a painting —
This portion of the upper area is still under renovation but is a perfect place for parties and meetings that can seat around 70.
Since it was just Gigi and I, we ordered the half-and-half Prosciutto Burrata and Shrimp (with Broccoli) pizza. I love Prosciutto and Burrata separately so putting them together was like the best treat ever!
We also got a sampler of their famous slow-cooked smoke-BBQ ribs. How slow? Is 12 hours slow enough for you? 😛
I will go back for the ribs! The meat was falling off the bones. No knife needed! It’s flavorful and went well with their special sauce.
I highly recommend the place! If you want to try out the place, hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org for the special discount. 😉
