Sweet and savory crepes are the specialty of the high-energy, NYC-based T-swirl crepe, which just opened its first Philadelphia location at 150 N. 10th St. in Chinatown (215-238-0111).

Opening day crowds were thick, clamoring at the counter for the wraps made with gluten-free rice flour batter. The crepes are filled cone-style, and are wrapped in clear plastic to go. Seating is available along the side wall.

Among the 11 sweet varieties ($6.50 to $8.75) are banana chocolate, blueberry cheesecake, lychee, and caramel Fuji apple. Among the 11 savories ($5.50 to $8.95) are double eggs (organic eggs scrambled with chopped lettuce and cheddar), Okinawa hot dog, chicken teriyaki and tuna Nicoise.

Shakes and coffee round out the menu.

It's open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday to Thursday, till midnight Friday and Saturday.
