New Yorkers may snag streetside crème brûlée from the Dessert Truck, but lucky San Francisco has a vendor dedicated solely to that sugar-crusted treat. For the last month or so, the Creme Brulee Cart has set up shop in the Mission, usually at Dolores Park, torching each $3 dessert to order. The blogger behind Hoodscope gave it a try:
Once you let him know what flavor you want, he tops it with a layer of sugar, busts out the blowtorch, and torches until it achieves the perfect crispy sugary top. Underneath that layer you can find a number of different flavors that are offered on a rotating basis.
Flavors range from classic vanilla bean to Bailey’s Irish Cream, White Russian Brûlée (in honor of The Big Lebowski), and Dark Chocolate Chambord. Where will the man show up next? Follow @cremebruleecart on Twitter to find out. He's usually near the Magic Curry Kart (@magiccurrykart), which makes for a fully balanced meal, all in one trip.
