Local Travel: Our Neighborhood Crepe Truck

One of the many things I miss about living in New York City are the food trucks. They always served the most delicious cuisines and were the perfect spot for grabbing a quick lunch or dinner. I lived there during the food truck trend explosion and nearly every week an awesome new truck would burst on the scene. By the time we moved out of the city there were hundreds of trucks serving nearly every kind of food on the planet! I was never at a loss for something new to try. Luckily, it hasn’t taken too long for the food truck trend to spread to the suburbs. Our little town in Connecticut even has one food truck, Christophe’s Crepes. Christophe is a jolly frenchman who parks his truck outside our local library. My daughter and I eat there at least once a month. We usually combine it with a trip to return her library books. Here are some shots of our recent trip over the weekend:

Christophe's Crepes Truck Christophe is always smiling. Every time we visit we chat and tells us what ingredients are freshest that day. This week he recommended the pears!

Crepe sign I love that he has a Specials board. Doesn’t a Caprese Crepe sound amazing??!! I think I might try and make one this summer.

Gorgonzola Pear Walnut Crepe

This time I selected the savory crepe with Gorgonzola, Pear, Walnuts & Honey. It was SO good!

Our neighborhood crepe truck As we walked away we discussed what we will order next time. My daughter plans on strawberry and I am hoping for another savory one.  I also secretly want to order the caramel apple crepe but am afraid it might set me back too much on the baby weight diet. Oh well. Bon Appetit!

I am so excited to be exploring the food truck trend for the rest of the year on behalf of my partnership Sargento. Do you know of a food truck I should visit? Let me know!
