Restaurant Review: Crazy Crepe Cafe – Manorville, NY

  

  
Last time I came out here at the beginning of last month. I forgot to post my review of Crazy Crepe Cafe! 

That was a savory buffalo chicken wrap with ranch! It was totally delicious. It could have been filled a little more for the price, but it was good! 

  
That is my custom Elvis wrap! Honey, Peanut Butter, Sliced Banana and I substituted the granola for Nutella! 

It was Amazing! You have to stop and get one! 

  
To top it all off a big Pina Colada Smoothie! They even have a whey protein add on for $1.00! 

With 5 locations in Long Island NY they must be doing great!

Restaurant Review: Food Truck – Cool Haus (ice cream cookie sandwich) 

  
Just when I sad that Nestle killed Chipwich; and a reader said try Trader Joe’s knockoff and was disappointed; along comes Cool Haus! The custom  ice cream cookie truck where you first pick your cookie and then pick your ice cream!  


  Bam! Look at the size of that! 
I do have one grip however! I ordered the peanut butter ice cream and chocolate chocolate chip cookie. It was delicious! However; the peanut butter ice cream in no way shape or form tasted like peanut butter! It was good thought! But; expecting peanut butter it left me disappointed! 

However; the spirit of Chipwich has returned and you can customize it! 

 


Restaurant Review: Food Truck – the French Quarter food truck

Ok as you know from reading my blog, I was stationed in Ms and frequented a lot of Cajun places in MS & LA and I have been seriously missing it! Especially since the food network is running a new series the Shed.

I also have been looking forward to trying the French Quarter food truck since the Jersey Shore food truck wars that I couldn’t attend and since the truck passed me on the highway a week or 2 ago!

Well, lets just say it was a almost total disappointment!

I got the shrimp po’boy at $10!!

I ate the first half of the small sandwich. Notice there are only about 5 shrimp on the half… I am used to Louisiana po’boys with the Shrimp falling out all over the place and the shrimp being prawns (xlarge jumbo) aka huge!! The po’boy from the French quarter was much healthier usually it’s drenched with hot sauce and mayo! Theirs was on the dry side very little topping.

Now to the gumbo, well what they call gumbo!

A giant bowl of grease probably due to the processed Pepperidge farm looking Andouille that they used. To me it was good! But, it didn’t taste like gumbo! It was closer to a chili soup. It was good but was it worth $7 a bowl? No!

Would I go out of my way to find the truck? No! Would I go again? No, unless they lowered their prices. The value for the money isn’t there.


Restaurant Review: Food Truck – Mesquite Manorville, NY

I passed this food truck on the side of 111 ever since may and I have been wanting to stop, but I’m always fighting traffic on the way home. Today I figured its fri and screwed anyway! Lets just check it out and I’m glad I did!

I got a duck taco, at $4.25 it wasn’t a great buy as it was really small, but it did taste good!

I got a steak burrito to go and ate it in the car just before I’m writing this lol.

The steak burrito rocked! It was packed and heavy! It was bursting with flavor! Packed with rice, guacamole and sour cream. The the guacamole was homemade and light. A creamy consistency not like the
normal green gluey substance.

The best part was the homemade picante sauce with blackened tomatoes you could not see it, but you could taste the smoky char and it had a strong yummy fresh cilantro taste!

Would I go back yes!! Would I get tacos? No! Well I might just have to try their mahi mahi taco! But I would definitely get a burrito!

Check them out they even have cute outdoor seating!

Ps driving and blogging is dangerous and illegal do not try this at home!
