Creperie moving to Main Street Market
Food truck GOyaya’s Crepes is mobile no more. The popular restaurant-on-wheels is making the leap next week to a fixed address inside the Main Street Market downtown. "We’ve always enjoyed being part of the Main Street Market," explains owner Kevin Black, "and we feel like most of our customers come from the downtown area, so this was a logical move for us." The crepe truck often parked close to Main Street or Spanish Town, serving a large, hungry lunch crowd. Black anticipates those same diners to enjoy GOyaya’s new fixed location just as much as they did the truck. He’s also looking forward to a more "streamlined" process for getting fresh produce for his crepe creations, as the majority of his fresh fruit and vegetables come from downtown’s Red Stick Farmers Market.
The GOyaya’s menu will expand to include even more weekly specials, with a wider variety of ingredients. The restaurant will also serve coffee and Asian bubble tea and fresh-made soups. Black says the big hits from the truck—like the grilled chicken Caprese, ham and Brie, and Cuban crepes—will remain on the menu; and he’s looking forward to bringing back seasonal hits, like the Peachy Pork, which featured sweet slices of peaches nestled among tangy pulled pork barbecue.
Diners who enjoyed getting their crepes on wheels shouldn’t despair, however. Black says that he’ll work on bringing the crepe truck back once the Main Street location is up and running smoothly. For now, he plans to officially unveil the new GOyaya’s on Wednesday. For more restaurant news, read 225 Dine here. —Rachael Upton
