I've been stalking the Crème Brûlée Cart on twitter for awhile now but he would appear on the days I was working.
3:00pm: Crème Brûlée Cart: Creme brulee on a Monday makes it feel like Friday. Who's in?
3:07pm: Cocochanelella: @cremebruleecart Yes! When and where?
Direct Message for location since the street vendors are beginning to get busted by the police.
6:30pm: Me: Hurry and finish eating the pupusas we need to find the creme burlee cart!!
6:35pm: Me: Come on!
6:50pm: [Waiting in the car parked directly across from the location]
6:55pm: [Spots creme burlee guy rolling his cart]
[Notices people are swooping out of nowhere in every direction]
[Chases the creme brulee guy]
Him: [Ummm, can I set up first?]
7:00pm: [Standing a few feet away to let him "set up"]
[A couple just approaches and buys two creme burlee]
Me: [What the hell? they see me waiting and I was first in line]
7:01pm: Can I have one of each and an extra Baileys?
[Opens the lids, sprinkle sugar and torches those babies]
7:10pm: [Finished with baileys and begin to hate myself for eating another]
So it turns out I'm a certified stalker and maybe the creme brulee guy didn't like my eagerness but I wanted to make sure I got to try it since I noticed he sells out in less than half an hour via Twitter. The creme brulees are well done, creamy and flavorful. Flavors include chocolate raspberry, white Russian, Bailey's and Vanilla.
I prefer a thicker and darker sugar crust but it is really about the novelty with pretty tasty homemade creme brulee to boot. At $3 a pop it is really affordable but at the same time I feel it is expensive. I didn't like his attitude and it might be specifically to me because other reviews indicate he is very friendly. Oh well. I make a pretty mean creme brulee myself, who wants to stalk me?
