Who says the French have a monopoly on crêpes? When the Soncharoen family—originally from Bangkok, Thailand—took over the restaurant in March 2009, one of the dishes they added to the menu was a traditional Thai crêpe. (Yes, Thai.) The dish ($5.95) consists of three steamed rice-flour crêpes filled with a crunchy mixture of palm sugar and ground turnips and peanuts—a sweet center inside a wrapping that splits the difference between an Asian dumpling and a French crêpe. Because the dough hardens if made too far ahead of time, this is a rare find on Thai restaurant menus—so be sure to seek it out (even at lunchtime, when the crêpes are not on the menu; the Soncharoens will usually make it if you specifically request them).
