For more than five years, "Buffalo" Sean Carroll has delighted guests with his snappy patter and the frilly-edged, filled crepes from his cart, Melange Creperie. The cart has become such a fixture in the Mango's parking lot at the corner of Taft and Westheimer that people honk and yell hello as they drive by.
Melange Creperie was on the leading edge of the wave of mobile gourmet food in Houston. Many of the newer vendors opted for trucks with mobile kitchens, but Carroll resolutely stayed at his cart. He does good business there and has outlasted many who started after him. In time, he expanded to serving at the Urban Harvest Farmer's Market at City Hall. An attempt to serve The Heights via a second cart was scrapped after a short time.More »
