Though they're the same shape as pancakes, crêpes are folded rather than stacked, and coated with powdered sugar rather than the tears of pancake chefs who wished they could be crêpe chefs. Dine on a not-pancake with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of crêpes and garlic fries from Crepe'n Around in Chatsworth.
Le Cordon Bleu Paris–trained chef Eileen DeLeoz stuffs sweet and savory fillers into thin rounds that have helped earn the eatery the title of a top 10 LA food truck by Zagat. Eileen and her sister Joann export Parisian flavors from their mobile crêperie, which can be located via cryptic skywritten messages or a schedule posted online each week. The tightly crafted menu has sweet and savory offerings (all crêpes are $7), such as the chicken-pesto crêpe—filled with seared chicken breast, red onions, and mixed greens cloaked in a frock of smoked provolone and pesto mayo. The maple braised-pork crêpe is trimmed with apple chutney, toasted walnuts, and honey-dijon sauce, and Eileen tops the berries-and-cream crêpe with a strawberry sauce handmade in the truck. S'more crêpes re-create campfire memories with a mix of marshmallows, graham crackers, and callebaut-chocolate sauce, finished with powdered sugar, whipped cream, and a liquefied gramophone of "Kumbaya." Diners can request their crêpes served with a piping portion of garlic fries ($3)—praised by a Zagat diner as having "fallen from garlic heaven."
