We’ve seen plenty of charcoal food items over the past few years: charcoal waffles, ice cream, buns, and even charcoal mille crepe cakes. So the addition of charcoal crepes to the ever-growing list may not raise too many eyebrows.
Some people may not take to the idea of adding charcoal to their food, but nobody can deny that it makes for a very interesting Instagram post. What started out as a street snack in Thailand has steadily gained traction in other countries like Australia, with pop up stalls at artisan markets.
These crepes are available with a wide variety of fillings, with some unconventional ones like flying fish roe and salmon roe for savoury crepes, and cereals such as Honey Stars or Koko Krunch for sweet crepes.
The trend hasn’t made it to Singapore just yet, but just like everything else, I’m sure it’s only a matter of time. If you’re travelling to Thailand or Australia anytime soon, keep an eye out for this snack!
