Crepes on the Walk
While strolling through Chinatown, quickly grab a crepe from this crepe stand. They offer a variety of sweet and savory crepes. The best part (other than eating it) is that it is made right before your eyes. You can see the chef spread a thick layer of Nutella onto the crepe while the chocolate melts in and strands of smoke fill the air.
