FCC Southern Créperie
388 Building, El Grande Avenue
BF Homes, Parañaque
With all the eating hubs opening up left and right in BF Homes, Parañaque, you can easily have more than a handful of choices when a food craving strikes. I mean, take your pick from all the ice cream shops, bakeries, steak places, coffee shops, cafés, milk tea stores, etc. that this not-so-little southern village has to offer. Name it, BF Homes has it… at least, that’s what I thought. Not until FCC Southern Créperie came did I really realize that: yeah, BF’s got it all!
FCC is a cozy little place specializing in crépes. A crépe is defined as a “thin, light pancake”, usually with sweet or savory filling or topping. FCC is located along the more unassuming El Grande Avenue (compared to the famous Aguirre Avenue foodie haven). It’s quite easy to miss, so here’s a map from their facebook.
Two of my friends and I decided to meet here one hot afternoon for a long-overdue chika session. The interiors are simple and yet tasteful, and exude a hip yet homey vibe.
I used to think crépes were very light meals, until I tried FCC’s savory crepes. They are really nakakabusog, and so very flavorful! It’s obvious that FCC doesn’t scrimp on ingredients, which you’ll savor in every delicious bite, and each dish is presented well.
When FCC had its soft opening a few months ago, they concentrated on offering their now famous sweet and savory crépes. Now, they’ve expanded their menu and included pasta and paninis. Perfect to pair along with their luscious milkshakes!
My friend had been eyeing the Linguine Bolognese since we arrived so that’s what he ordered. Now, this is definitely not the sweet-style pasta kind. The noodles were cooked well and were not drenched in sauce, and overall the dish was very meaty and flavorful.
My other friend decided on the Smoked Norwegian Salmon Panini. The chips were cut too thick for my liking, but my friend assured me that that’s what “legit” non-commercial potato chips were like: thicker and not too salty. I didn’t try her sandwich since I’m not too keen on salmon, but she assured me the hefty sandwich was good and really filling.
Time for dessert! We were truthfully stuffed from our orders, but you can’t go to FCC and not have one of their sweet endings, right? So the three of us got a Dulce de Leche crépe with bananas and ice-cream to share.
We left with happy tummies, and a resolve to be back to try more of their offerings very soon.
Check their facebook for promos and details. Oh, and they have loyalty cards now, so all the more reason to keep on coming back to enjoy what this southern creperie has to offer.
Update: FCC closed operations early this 2017.
