Street Food Friday: Mmmm Crepes….

Welcome back to Street Food Friday! If you missed the last few rounds, go check out Bananarchy (Austin), Cartopia (Portland) and Gaztro-Wagon (Chicago).


There was one day where I was experiencing a food truck FAIL. I had tried to locate not one, but two trucks, and both were gone or done for the day by the time I reached (what were their) locations.  Disheartened, I checked my handy dandy twitter list to see if there were any other trucks around… and I was in luck! The Crepes Truck was right nearby.

100_3505I had been to the Crepes Truck before, and had this decadent strawberry crepe – with fresh strawberries, preserves and balsamic reduction (Mmmmmm). But that was sweet, and at the moment, I wanted savory!  There was no line at the truck (lord knows why, crepes are delicious!) so I quickly pursued the menu, and made my choice of the New Yorker.  When in Rome, right?  I mean, err… when in New York.  🙂  The New Yorker includes Parmesan cheese and chicken with peppers, caramelized onions, capers and thyme.

100_3503The crepe was super tasty!  The ingredients blended together in such a way that I didn’t really taste any capers (which I would have liked to) and the thyme is minimal, which is good, since I don’t care very much for it. The chicken was shredded and spiced perfectly… all in all it was delicious! I wish I knew what it was spiced with. The caramelized onions are also very subtle, but in a good way, since sometimes they can be overpowering.

100_3509In short, for $7 – these crepes are worth it, whether you want savory or sweet.  And hit up the truck before the lines get crazy! I can’t wait to head back to the Crepes Truck since it’s warmer out so I can take better advantage of eating it fresh, right away (I’ve been taking back to my office in the colder weather).

  1. Those look so good! I normally go for sweet crepes, but if I was going savory the new yorker sounds like the perfect way to go.

  2. I’ve been meaning to try the Crepes Truck for awhile (it’s parked pretty close to my office during the weekdays). I think this post will provide me with just the motivation I need to go for it!
