Crêpe Suzette

Certainly enough for two to share, crêpe suzette is a French dessert dish consisting of - you guessed it - crêpes and beurre Suzette (a butter and caramelized sugar sauce), with a twist of orange. Ours were filled with a little orange juice and the pulp of a fresh orange, Grand Marnier, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Though I think using orange zest may beat using fresh oranges (as to avoid any pith, or that white part of the orange), this is definitely my favorite type of crêpe so far.

Where you can enjoy this yourself:

La Creperie
Paris Las Vegas (Hotel and Casino)
655 Las Vegas Blvd So.
Las Vegas, Nevada

The crêpes here are about $10 a plate. It's expensive, and we must have waited 20 minutes (with only one or two people ahead of us), so don't expect the same quick and easy on-the-go snack you might find in the real Paris.
It looks an awful lot like Paris - but don't be fooled! (Paris [Hotel and Casino] Las Vegas)
