Food Truck Friday : Holy Crepe! & Yess B's

Blogging FAIL: We did not eat this food on a Friday nor are we posting it on a Friday. But I can't change the name now, right? So it's Food Truck Friday on a Sunday.

**This post is not sponsored. We paid for all our food**

North In Cali's Food Truck Friday Review of Holy Crepe! & Yess B's Curbside Diner  www.northincali.com

Sundial Bridge Comic Con was really fun! But I'm not gonna lie, the food trucks were my favorite part. While we were there, we saw 4 food trucks outside the comic con. Holy Crepe!, Yess B's, What The Truck, & Slyders. Slyders was closing down and moving to the Rodeo so we were unable to try their food this time, although we did have them at Anderson River Park last fall and liked them very much. If you go back a ways on my Instagram @northincali you will find some pictures there.  You can find our review of What The Truck HERE. My teenage son did have a burger from What The Truck, which he thoroughly enjoyed.

Since we only ordered a little from each truck, I'm going to include both food trucks we ordered from in this review.  I don't feel I can give Yess B's a well rounded review on it's own since I only had one item from their truck.

Three of the five of us went straight to the Holy Crepe! truck.  When we lived in Salt Lake City there was a quick serve restaurant called European Connection (sadly, no longer in SLC) and it served both sweet and savory crepes. We loved them! Since then we make crepes at home and get excited when we come across places to eat crepes. My kids love the sweet crepes and Q and I like both sweet and savory. So we were very excited to find a crepe food truck!

Holy Crepe! Chicken Pesto & Strawberry Nutella

Q & I split the the Chicken Pesto crepe for $9. Child #2 got a Strawberry Nutella crepe and #3 got a Banana Nutella crepe for $7 each.  They were all exactly as you would expect them to be. Which is great, when ordering you know what to expect, but sometimes I like to be pleasantly surprised at finding the food better than expected.  In their defense, we ordered pretty basic menu items. The pesto chicken was very good, satisfying that urge for "real food". The sweet crepes were stuffed full of fruit and Nutella. One of the kids couldn't finish theirs due to the size so #1 was more than happy to finish it off even after eating a burger from What The Truck.  (Teenage boys will eat everything in sight!) I would happily eat from Holy Crepe! again, I would love to try their Lemon crepe or Steak crepe. And the cinnamon roll crepe sounds delicious!

I liked the savory crepe but felt like I needed something else, especially since Q and I were splitting it. When I saw the Seared Tri-tip Salad on Yess B's menu, I knew I had to try it.  One of the things that stands out about Yess B's is that they use all local sourced foods and she changes up her menu daily. So you could go to every day and try something new! I like that!

Seared Tri-tip Salad $12. The Tri-tip was perfectly seared. The meat was tender and juicy and had great flavor. The greens were definitely fresh. I asked for the feta on the side, because Q doesn't like feta and I knew he would want to try it. I always ask for dressing on the side for my salads because I am picky about how much dressing is on my salad. But forgot this time, and so I felt like there was too much dressing, but that is always the case for me whenever I get a salad at a restaurant, so I won't hold that against them.

My only complaint is that for $12 it was a bit on the smaller side.  I would have needed to order another item to make it a full meal. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but could get kinda pricey. However, in her defense, locally sourced, quality ingredients do cost more than buying from a bulk supplier. I'm not saying don't get it, I'm just saying get it and something else if you need a full meal.

Overall Q enjoyed the crepe more than the salad and I enjoyed the salad more than the crepe. So we both were happy!  

Yess B's can be found most weekdays behind Bob's Tires in Red Bluff and at special events. Find out more on her website www.yessbscurbsidediner.com or on social media.

Have you tried either of these food trucks? What about others?
