Holy Crêpe!! A New Cart Is Making Milky Way and Guacamole Crêpes


Folks, last night marked our virgin encounter with the month-old Tripie crêpe cart (when read from right to left, “tripie” means “chocolate” in Hebrew). Good Lord, where to start with this? First of all, just take a look at our video of the making of a candy bar, fresh fruit, and whipped cream crêpe. Once you’ve digested that, know this: The owners are completely nuts Brian Fogel and Rony Klein. Fogel, the man who decided guacamole could be a crêpe filling, came here from Israel a year and half ago with the dream of serving the “healthiest food on the street.” How exactly is the option of combining pickles, whipped cream, and hard-boiled eggs healthy? Well, Fogel reveals to us that in the next days, he’ll start adding a powder containing 25 vitamins and minerals to his batter. All of his batter. (The top-secret batter recipe, in case you’re wondering, came from a chef friend at a French restaurant.) The cart, which currently has a Facebook page and will soon be on Twitter, will be parked at 8th Street and Fourth Avenue from around noon till 3 a.m. If you go, bring a pen in order to sign the guest book, and ask about customer loyalty cards, coming soon. But before that, you really do have to click on the video and see the menu.
