With less than a year serving their street-prepared crepes in the Civic Center District of San Francisco, CA, food consultant and catering father-daughter team at The Crepe Escape by Tia offers a variety of sweet and savory crepes every Sunday and Wednesday at a quaint sidewalk pop-up bistro, reminiscent of the sidewalks in Paris.
We stumbled upon The Crepe Escape by Tia while walking passed the Civic Center UN Building, and couldn’t resist stopping here for lunch. Crepes make for fantastic meals, snacks and desserts and are highly versatile.
A crepe is a very thin pancake, made by spreading wheat or buckwheat flour batter evenly and thinly over a pan or flat crepe maker that resembles a hot plate. The word, crepe is French, meaning “curled.” Sweet crepes are typically made with wheat flour pancakes, and savory crepes are usually found made with buckwheat flour galettes.
Perfectly even, firm, yet fluffy, the crepe pancakes and galettes at The Crepe Escape by Tia are made to order with a steady hand and a lot of love, using fresh, locally sourced meat, poultry, fruits and produce. With just a hint of buttery flavor, these crepes are absolutely perfect for filling, topping and wrapping just about anything. They prove this by offering traditional ham and cheese crepes, as well as Italian, Mexican, and even Greek interpretations.
The Chicken Salad Crepe in a full or half order is a guiltless, hearty, heart-conscious meal, packed with protein and vitamins that delivers just as much in taste as it does health benefits. We were pleased to see that The Crepe Escape by Tia also offers their Chicken Salad Crepe in half-orders, as well.
