Origin of Crêpes and Galettes

Perhaps between crêpes and galettes, the more famous of the two would be crêpes. The former casts a shadow over the latter because it is a term more used to describe thin, flat pancakes and because galette has been overlooked in many parts around the world. Although both are prepared on a hot, flat skillet, there is a distinct difference between the two.

In French cuisine, galettes are referred to as any type of flat round cake while a crêpe is a pancake. One is savoury and the other sweet. Both originated from Brittany in France – the galette was first introduced in Haute-Bretagne (Upper Brittany) while the crêpe was introduced in Basse-Bretagne (Lower Brittany).

At HEOL, both regions of Brittany come together. Our galette is better known as the Breton galette – a version which is made with buckwheat flour and topped or filled with savoury ingredients while our crêpes made from wheat flour are thin, fluffy and sweet filled with the most delicious ingredients to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Every meal at HEOL completes the Brittany experience – a time-tested formula of having savoury buckwheat galettes for your main dish followed by wheat-flour crêpes for a sweet finish.

Quality, Intricacy and Refinement

French cuisine is renowned the world over for three reasons – quality, intricacy and refinement. And, despite the diverse regions of France, from the colder North to the sunnier South, these qualities are displayed on every plate.

HEOL re-creates the magic of Brittany, a region most commonly known for seafood with over 2800 km of coastline. But, apart from its coastal treasures, Brittany is also the birthplace of the humble galette and crêpe – a tradition that you will find at HEOL in all its authenticity and brought to you by the brother and sister duo of Christine and Philippe De La Fourniere.

Boasting one of the largest open-air terraces in Jumeirah Lake Towers, the ‘O’ in HEOL’s name not only symbolises the sun but also the disc shape of crêpes. Using only the finest ingredients along with seasonal produce, the kitchen team at HEOL will dish out crêpes perfect for any meal – breakfast, lunch or dinner – either dine in, take away or delivered to your doorstep.

Our Menu

HEOL’s culinary team is led by Chef Pierre Vallez. Hailing from Brittany itself, Chef Pierre completed culinary school at l’école des maitres crêpiers de rennes (Masters of Crêpes in Rennes, capital of Brittany). His recipes combine the traditions of Brittany’s cooking with the refined products of the French countryside such as the best cheeses, home-made jams, honey and fruits.

HEOL’s menu consists of a variety of galettes including the most famous La complete made with ham and cheese and topped with an egg as well as a list of standard and signature crepes to end the experience on a sweet note. Breakfast items, salads, sandwiches and other French desserts as well as an extensive beverage list are also available.
