T-Swirl serves up a huge assortment of savoury and sweet crepe-related goodies. It's located in an almost-hidden corner of Langham Square, a semi-obscure shopping complex better known by locals as the T&T Plaza on Kennedy .
This is actually the first GTA location of a large New York-based chain. The crepes here have a slight crunch so don't expect them to be super thin and soft.
Seating is limited here - it's definitely more of a take-out spot but there are a handful of places to sit for a while.
From the savoury crepe menu, my personal favourite is the Angus Short Ribs ($12.95). They're filled with Angus beef ribs, julienned carrots, red onions, string beans and other veggies and drizzled with chipotle aioli and a sweet tofu sauce.
The T-Swirl BLT ($11.95) comes with smoked bacon, chopped lettuce, organic boiled eggs, grape tomatoes, fresh avocado, chipotle aioli and sesame dressing. It's a great twist on a traditional BLT sandwich.
I'm not quite sold on the Smoked Salmon ($11.95) with cream cheese. The sauce-less crepe feels too dry for me, given how stuffed it is with vegetables like string beans and baby spinach. A dash of spicy mayo would've taken it up a notch.
Over on the sweet side, the Blueberry NY Cheesecake ($9.95) is a must-order. Rich and indulgent vanilla gelato, whipped cream cheese and custard is topped with blueberries and almonds. Yum.
I have mixed feelings about the Chocolate Nut Party ($9.95). Chocolate gelato, chocolate sauce, chocolate custard cream and handmade chocolate truffles, might actually be a case of chocolate overload.
The Matcha Azuki Bean ($9.95) is creamy matcha gelato paired with matcha custard cream, red bean and sliced strawberries. It's sweet but doesn't go overboard.
