It was not my first choice. I actually had no other choice. It was about two in the afternoon at Little Skillet’s Halloween street food frenzy at Ritch Street and the Crème Brûlée Cart was down to his last six cups.
I am more of a vanilla bean or a Grand Marnier type. But a Cap’n Crunch Crème Brûlée?! I know, I’m a little boring. I had some reservations as I handed him my $4 and as he scorched away the sugar crystals into a crusty caramelized top. But as he sprinkled colorful Cap’n Crunch pieces on my cup, for some reason, I got so excited. I knew I was in for a sweet treat!
And a crusty, creamy and crunchy treat it was. I sat down by the pavement, laid out a napkin on my lap and enjoyed my Captain Crunch Crème Brûlée on a cool sunny San Francisco afternoon. Another “I love the city” moment.
Catch the Crème Brûlée Cart in the Mission, usually at Dolores Park and follow his tweets at @cremebruleecart.
