Quote from: Moonblossom on January 27, 2010, 06:42:54 PMFrench style are either served flat or rolled with a bit of sauce and are a slightly different texture. I've always seen the whole "stuffing with crazy things and folding in a triangle to eat like a sandwich" street-food style crepe promoted as Japanese-style.http://www.japan-guide.com/forum/quereadisplay.html?0+32697They talk about the difference in style a fair bit here.
Quote from: Moonblossom on January 27, 2010, 07:36:09 PMhttp://www.crepehouseuni.com/aboutus.html"One of the most significant differences between a traditional French and Japanese crepe is how they are served." (too lazy to type out the rest right now but you might want to read it)Feel free to take it up with the many companies who refer to them as "Japanese-style crepes" then, rather than be a nitpicky arse here. Jerry is obviously referring to the folded, stuffed, street-style ones and the easiest way to explain was refer to it as Japanese-style. I've never seen a french crepe sold as street food, especially not stuffed with brownies and tiramisu or hamburgers or tofu salad, and I live in one of the most french places in the world outside of France itself.edit: Since I know there's no point whatsoever in trying to have a rational discussion with a brick wall, I'm not replying to you again. Feel free to continue rolling around in your fabulous intellectual superiority.

Quote from: Persona on January 29, 2010, 02:12:43 PMI thought that Japanese-style crepes tended to be rolled up in an ice-cream cone/have a more conical shape than French-style, which are usually in a 1/4 circle shape.Shape difference aside, Japanese crepes also tend to be thinner with a crispy edge and slightly bigger, while French crepes are a little doughier. Also, I've never had a Japanese crepe served on a plate, though I've had French crepes in both street-food form and in meal form.Perhaps there really isn't a difference after all, but that's the experience with crepes that I've had, and I've run the gamut between crepes in Japan, Japantown, HK, Montreal, and "crepes" in Berkeley (Crepes a Go-Go/Crepevine).
Quote from: N.E.R.V.agent220 on January 27, 2010, 08:51:45 PMHow about this, Let's Invite the crew of Sophie's Crepes from San Francisco's Japantown have them set up a booth in the convention center somewhere where they can serve their delicious crepe deserts. (I reccommend the ice cream crepes) have them experience Fanime for the first time and perhaps have them give you a lecture on what Japanese crepes are.
