Asian Beer Pairings
Charles Phan, the chef and owner of San Francisco's Slanted Door, thinks the perfect crêpe should be lacy thin and crackly crisp. After years of obsessive experimentation, he recommends refrigerating the batter overnight, so the starches have time to relax, then cooking the crêpes in a nonstick pan.
Pairing: Vietnamese beer such as "33" Export, or Tsingtao from China, would be a terrific companion for this crispy dish with its sweet and spicy sauce.
