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:

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

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!

    My husband is doing some consulting work in Connecticut . We were”exploring” areas and on our walk, we came upon this truck. I was excited beyond belief to find something this delicious!! My crepe had raspberries and chocolate- so tasty. The delicious combination on the thin crepe kept me happy driving all the way back to Syracuse.
