Adil Chokairy grew up in France, where he spent summers working for his father’s transportation company and subsisting on a steady diet of his mother’s homemade crepes. As he knew the ins and outs of how to run a business, it’s no surprise he gravitated towards sales and marketing as a career later in life. He quickly got into the banking industry after moving to New Haven, CT with his wife. However, the corporate life left him feeling unfulfilled. Reflecting on his childhood, he had an epiphany – combine the business expertise he learned from his father with the crepe-making skills he learned from his mother. That brilliant notion birthed Crêpes Choupette. Now, you can catch this little cart popping up around the community frying up light, flaky crepes.
The menu sports both sweet and savory varieties of this Parisian classic. The savory crepes are made from 100% organic buckwheat flour and come stuffed with fillings perfectly paired together to create mouth-watering flavor profiles. Try a full-bodied blend of mozzarella, tomato, and basil. Or, sample all things creamy and smoky with a crepe stuffed with brie, gouda, and bacon. As for the sweeter side, Adil makes his saccharine crepes with whole wheat flours and fills ‘em with a whole range of decadent ingredients. A crepe stuffed with Nutella, banana, and strawberry? What about one filled with blueberry, mascarpone, and vanilla ice cream? You get the idea – this is the perfect pit-stop for dinner and dessert, so hit up Crêpes Choupette the next time you’re feeling ravenous. If you love it, have Adil out to cater your next event. Guests will feel pampered chowing down on a spread of crepes.
Choupette — The eponymous item comes stuffed with a luxurious mix of fig spread, arugula, prosciutto, and goat cheese for a truly bold, tart taste. Yum.
