Eating the Alphabet - "F" is for FliP Crêpes

For the letter "F" in the "Eating the Alphabet" series, we went to FliP Crêpes. FliP Crêpes is at the Chicago French Market. We had never been to the Chicago French Market, so, that was a fun experience itself; it is like an indoor combination of food trucks and farmer's market stalls.

Timmy ordered the Croq Madame sandwich ("ham or turkey, Swiss, Béchamel sauce gratinde, & sunny-side egg atop"). I ordered the Chicken Provençale crepe ("Grilled chicken, Swiss, tomatoes, spinach, and herbed honey Dijon"). Then we ordered an Apple Crumble crepe ("milky caramel, home roasted apples & buttery crumbles") to split.

Timmy got ham on his Croq Madame and he said the sandwich was "f***ing tasty." I am not a fan of half cooked eggs, so, I didn't try it. I am also not a fan of raw spinach, so, I removed that from my crepe (I was expecting chopped cooked spinach); additionally, I substituted the Dijon for pesto (what can I say, I'm a picky eater). The pesto was so, so good. The Apple Crumble crepe was by far the star of the show for me though. It was ah-maz-ing. I could eat a pan of them. Next time I am going to try it without the caramel sauce, because it was a bit too sweet. The gentleman working the counter was very friendly and helpful, which a definite bonus.
