Wednesday, May 25th: Crêpe Crawl

Crêpe Crawl
NE corner of Sara D. Roosevelt Park (Forsyth & E. Houston, Manhattan)

On Wednesday, May 25, we go in search of one of the more versatile street foods we’ve yet attempted. Crêpe, meaning “tissue” in French, is a simple, thin pancake made of flour, egg and milk that is used to wrap up virtually any filling for easy eating on the hoof. Nutella is among the more ubiquitous and popular crêpe toppings, however they can also be enjoyed with more savory fillings as well. Any film buffs who may be following us will perhaps also recall the adorable scene in Amelie when she imagines vinyl LPs being made on a crêpe griddle. Happily, crêpes are also to enjoy in vegetarian forms if that’s how you roll.

We will again be using more than one crawl route, and route maps will be distributed to teams before we set out. Be nice and give good tips to the kind folks who are being asked to make a ton of food in short order.
