PHOTOS, REVIEW: We Try Every Sweet and Savory Crepe at the NEW Central Park Crepes, Now Open at Universal Studios Florida
Central Park Crêpes, appropriately located near the entrance of Central Park at Universal Studios Florida, has finally opened and is serving up a wide selection of sweet and savory crêpes! We’re here to taste this new on-the-go meal option at Universal Orlando Resort, and can’t wait to dig in. How about we try… the whole menu?
The Central Park Crepes cart design follows Art Noueau beautiful styling, with posters mimicking the 19th-century style of Alphonse Mucha. There’s an ordering window on one end, with a pick-up window on the side, and two Freestyle Coke machines on the other end. The kiosk will be open until 3:00 PM today, and starting tomorrow, hours will be 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM daily.
The menu features six different crepes: three savory and three sweet varieties, plus Freestyle Soda options.
After ordering, your crepes are made to order right in front of you, with batter expertly laid out on a hot plate and then each crepe filled to the brim with toppings.
Portion-wise, these are all fairly hefty, heavy cones of goodness, so if you’re tempted to get multiple, just keep that in mind… these are essentially meals wrapped up in fresh crepes.
Seating is available at the nearby Cafe La Bamba, but do keep in mind that it does fill up fairly quickly.
Overall, the crepes themselves are actually incredible. They’re light and warm, but with a slight toothsome chewiness, for a really great consistency and taste. These just melt in your mouth.
Chicken & Goat Cheese – $7.99
Filled with Grilled Chicken, mushrooms, pesto, arugula, and goat cheese
And now, on to the first crepe tasting!
There’s large chunks of chicken and lots of arugula visible at first glance, but once you dig in, you’ll find mushrooms and plentiful amounts of goat cheese.
There’s also pesto, which gives it an extra pop of flavor. The warm goat cheese is perfect with the crepe, and the mushrooms are delicious.
Smoked Brisket – $7.99
Filled with smoked Brisket, pepper jack cheese, coleslaw, and Golden BBQ Ranch
Brisket is good, but we thought the Chicken & Goat Cheese was better.
The brisket is thinly sliced. It’s flavorful, but there’s just not enough sauce here to coat the entirety of the crepe.
The main flavors here are the brisket and coleslaw with a bit of the cheese, but it really needs more BBQ ranch sauce… we got a few bites of it at first, but afterwards, the flavor mostly vanished.
