A friend (I won't say who because he's a prominent local musician and I don't want to be accused of namedropping, OK I'll say it it was Skid Jones) clued me in to the option of adding the smoked tofu to a salad at Crepeville so today for lunch I gave it a try. Man, that shit is good. I have never eaten at the Crepeville in Davis and now I'm psyched to eat there more often. I like their tuna melt, too. The only problem (besides the inconvenience of not taking cards and today having a broken ATM so I was forced to walk TWO BLOCKS EACH WAY) is that the portions are really ridiculously huge. I'm not kidding when I say that this is a real problem. We all know that when you are served a giant plate with a tasty sandwich as big as your head and a pile of potatoes a foot high that it takes enormous self-discipline to not eat until you are overfull and I, for one, resent it. I'm not even saying charge less and serve less, because I know that the reason restaurants do this in the first place is because they make more profit by doing it because the extra few pototatoes only cost them a few cents a pop, if that. I wish they would just give you the option of having less food for the same price. Or I wish I had a friend to go to lunch with to split the sandwich. Stupid Davis! Summary: Crepeville is good. Eat there.
