Japan: Angels Heart

After lunch, CK and I wandered around Yoyogi Park, the Meiji Shrine, and the Harajuku area until we'd digested enough to get in line at Angels Heart for a crepe:

There are actually two creperies located directly across from one another: Angels Heart and Marion Crepes.  We simply picked the one with more people in line.

The menu at Angels Heart is rather overwhelming.  There's a ton to choose from.  At least there aren't any cutesy names for the different crepes.  You know exactly what you're going to get when you order. 

We thought we would get more time to make up our mind given the long line, but it went much faster than we expected.  Getting close to the front of the line, we gave up on looking through the entire menu and just randomly went with the hot custard banana chocolate crepe (400 yen or $4) and the strawberry and cookies & cream cheesecake crepe (590 yen or $5.90), which literally had a slice of Oreo cheesecake in it:

I'm not a huge whipped cream fan, so I preferred the hot custard banana chocolate crepe. 

The crepes were good, but were we blown away?  Not really.  Pretty for pictures and nice to nibble on, but not something we would crave on any given day.

I would still recommend people to get one if they're looking for the full Harajuku experience though.  Just make sure to find a nice corner to enjoy your crepe in.  Eating while walking is apparently a big no-no in Japan.
