Immature? I probably am, or at least people will probably think I am.

That hairy crepe looks special. Not sure about it though.

Hi Gattina ... not sure about the crepe - or the hairiness ... if I knew what it was, other than the chocolate, that might whet my appetite ... strange looking dessert .. but am sure it was delicious ... cheers Hilary

Oooh, I've never come across hairy crepe, but it looks delicious! And that is a lot of chocolate :-) Yum!
I love fried shrimp, too. And coconut shrimp!

What is that?
Leave it to someone living in Belgium to find an Egyptian food with chocolate!
I love it.
