Crêperie Nicolas (sweet crêpes and Breton style buckwheat galettes)


Nutella crêpe from the Crêperie Nicolas van on the Southbank


The Citroen H custom van in action


The grub: sweet crêpes and Breton style buckwheat galettes. The best sweet seller is plain Nutella which, while simple, arrives with crispy edges and a thin, light base coated in chocolate. Other fillings include Grand Marnier, lemon, sugar and fruit. The galettes are coeliac friendly – they only add in salt and water giving it a clean, nutty overall flavour. Flavours are generally simple classics: cheese, ham, mushroom and crispy bacon.

The vibe: it’s all spread out on top of a pair of hot plates inside a Sixties custom made navy blue Citroen H van. Service is careful and very considerate and nothing will come to you until it’s perfectly cooked and folded over. Gillian and Keith don’t do festivals “because we don’t have the energy any more” but they do appear at some London food events.

The story: Gillian and Keith Wyles are a couple who having worked in other careers took off to Brittany – where this food originated – to learn the art of the perfect galette. They came back here, loaded up a truck and haven’t stopped since.

The tab: £4/crepes, £3/galettes
