crepes 2 go - Sawtelle

I'm walking on Sawtelle on Sunday afternoon...stopped by Furaibo - closed. Crossed the street to the plaza where Hurry Curry is and as I'm walking to see what all is there...come across this little space - and I do mean little! Crepes 2 Go, says the sign...I look at the menu sign which is organized by sweet / savory. The sweet varieties are named after classic actresses - Marilyn Monroe, Garbo, etc.., the Savory crepes - after actors - Gregory Peck, Sinatra, etc. Really interesting space... almost like a street vendor type feel. BUT there are warnings posted around the menu board - "Make Sure you know what you want before you order", "Don't ask questions that can be answered from the board", "after you order, wait outside or come back"! It's a hoot. Undeterred...I order the Mariyln Monroe - 3 different fruits and whipped cream...owner says "what fruit?", I say "I get a choice?", owner slams his order pad down tells me to come back in when I figure out what I want. I so rude it's funny! So...I figure out what fruits...order it and also a savory with salmon, cream cheese and grilled onions... It's all delicious if you can deal with the cranky owner. It's worth a try and also a laugh!
