Nashville Food Truck Friday : Crepe A Diem

As I started my blog in September 2013 and only became vegan in May 2016, there are several non-vegan posts pre-vegan era.  As an example of how someone can change their path in life drastically, I have made the decision to leave the posts up even though I am ashamed of them.  I hope you will take this example and think on it.  Also, see my animal activism page or travel page on ideas for ethical animal tourism and vegan food around the world.  My inbox is always open should you have questions about changing your lifestyle to better serve animals, our planet, and your own health.

Since starting this Food Truck Friday series, I’ve been very excited about visiting and writing about Crepe A Diem.  I had heard nothing but amazing things and knew Crepe A Diem was going to be an amazing food truck.  However, before I was able to visit the truck, I actually went to a POP Dinner that was created by Crepe A Diem Owner + Chef, Brittney Blackshear.  This was such a great experience because I think people forget that food truck chefs do more than what you see on their trucks.

Brittney served everyone a 4-course dinner which included beef tartar, french kiss, baguettes, grilled kale salad, provencal stew, duck confit and a crepe with orange grand marnier sauce.  Check out this for full menu descriptions – I promise your mouth will be watering when you’re done.  I had never had duck confit before and I must say, it was one of the most delicious and sophisticated things I’ve ever eaten.  I would highly suggest attending Brittney’s next dinner if and when she does one.

But, on to the reason you are here –> Crepes!

Brittney studied abroad in France and fell in love with the simplicity and versatility of crepes.  Inspired, she started learning how to make crepes, studied underneath a Michelin trained Chef and eventually formed Crepe A Diem.  Crepe A Diem specializes in sweet and savory crepes but also offers croissant sandwiches and hashbrowns.  The most popular item right now B.E.C. (applewood smoked bacon, local farm egg & artisan cheddar cheese).  Another great thing about Crepe A Diem is that they use fresh and locally sourced food.

Our Choice :

Hashbrown : potato au gratin with cheddar + chives

Holy crap! Every single bite made us look at each other and go “are you serious?!”  I got there before Kaleb and chose the Louisiana for him because of the sausage and spicyness.  I chose the Veggie for me to get something a little lighter to offset the Louisiana.  They both were exceptional, but ironically my favorite was the Louisiana and his was the Veggie.

Don’t get me wrong though – it’s a hard choice.  I would take a bite of the Louisiana and think this is definitely my favorite and then I would take a bite of the Veggie and think this is definitely my favorite.

And, oh my goodnesssss…the hashbrown.  I’ve never had a hashbrown made like this and I never want one done differently again.  Definitely order a hashbrown when you go!

the breakdown:

Cost : $21

Ordered : Louisiana Crepe, Veggie Crepe, Hashbrown

Favorite Thing : Louisiana (for me), Veggie (for Kaleb)

Type of Food : French, Crepes

    Crepes and four course dinners from a food truck? Wow, you have some nice food trucks in Nashville! The food trucks near my work just serve burritos. I would much prefer crepes!

    When I moved away from Nashville 5 years ago, I thought the food scene was pretty dismal! I have to say I’m a little jealous that all of this popped up after I moved away! It looks great.

    The food looks amazing. I was watching a show about food trucks recently and they featured the Barbie truck from Nashville. Have you tried it out yet?
