Hence, a bit of an inquiry is warranted into O’Crepes and That Cheesecake Truck, rolling around town now. Remember, there are no winners and losers in this competition. Only sugar.
O’Crepes: The recipes here come from the family of Regine Palladin, owner of Pesce in Dupont Circle.
That Cheesecake Truck: The first DC (and first mobile) venture by Rockville’s Sweetz Cheesecake.
The Edge: O’Crepes. When in doubt, France trumps Rockville.
O’Crepes: The graphics here run to grapes, bananas and oranges cavorting on a beach.
That Cheesecake Truck: Chrome, blue and brand spanking new, this is the A-Team van of food trucks.
The Edge: That Cheesecake Truck, as it doesn’t conjure up any weird Fruit of the Loom flashbacks.
The Lunch Situation
O’Crepes: Think savory choices like The Parisian Classic, with ham and brie, and the Moulin Rouge, with chicken, mozzarella and pesto (and a garter).
That Cheesecake Truck: Not much here, unless you can justify a bite of mango or pumpkin for lunch.
The Edge: O’Crepes. At least until That Cheesecake Truck unveils a chicken salad cheesecake.
The Post-Lunch Situation
O’Crepes: Here, select your own fillings from stuff like Nutella, fresh fruit, banana and applesauce.
That Cheesecake Truck: A rotating array of two-dozen-plus flavors, like Tiramisu, Banana Chocolate Chip and Italian Frangelico.
The Edge: That Cheesecake Truck. It’s the pre-happy-hour pickup you need.
