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.
Louisiana : andouille sausage, caramelized onions, provolone cheese, red pepper sauce
Veggie : mushrooms, local goat cheese, mozzarella, spinach and a balsamic reduction
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!
Cost : $21
Ordered : Louisiana Crepe, Veggie Crepe, Hashbrown
