Nashville Food Truck Friday : Crepe A Diem

NASHVILLE FOOD TRUCK FRIDAY | CREPE A DIEM

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.

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?
