The Grafton Centre, (opposite the VUE cinema), Cambridge, CB1 1PS
Alex and Regis Crepy own Amelie – a rather unique concept. We’re talking about Flam-kuche, a traditional dish from the Alsace region in France, and it’s the signature dish at Amélie Flam-Kuche, the stand-out restaurant with the bright yellow van opposite the Vue cinema at The Grafton.
The ‘Skinny Pizza’ is spread with their signature crème fraiche or tomato sauce and topped with a variety of mouth-watering ingredients. And it’s fast, very fast. It cooks in the oven for just 90 seconds and that means you taste every delicious bit of it. It’s the perfect pre-movie (or even in-movie as Alex does take-out) dish. The ingredients are fresh and sourced locally, and there’s even a signature beer brewed by the Suffolk independent, Nethergate Brewery.
Amélie is a family affair. Regis has owned several highly successful restaurants and Alex grew up working in his parents’ eateries. After he graduated from the Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne, Alex continued to learn his trade with Gaucho Restaurants in London, but he always wanted to open a restaurant brand with his father. The restaurant is named after Alex’s sister, an artist, and she has designed all the artwork.
Alex and Regis’ ambition was to impress their customers with both the quality of their food and the service, and they’re clearly achieving that ambition. Amélie is ranked in the top restaurants on TripAdvisor for Cambridgeshire, and it’s one of seven Cambridge restaurants to make it into the Waitrose Good Food Guide!
They‘ve recently refurbished their Grafton unit, introducing a fresh and vibrant buzz along with new menu additions of their very own favourite European dishes. Their ‘Skinny Pizza Meal Kits’ – where customers can order and build their very own – are available to deliver around the UK so you can eat your favourite Flam-Kuche in the comfort of your own home. Each Flatpack comes with enough to feed four, so do check out their website for more information.
