Warren Sai, owner of the French Taste creperie, is offering another option for those looking to make Mother’s Day special.

He’s taking orders for sweet or savory crepes that he’ll make and sell from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, May 10, at Ferguson Books and Media in the Grand Cities Mall, 1720 S. Washington St.

Orders may be placed on his Facebook page, FrenchTasteLLC, or by text or phone call to (701) 739-2575. When ordering, customers should include the time they will pick up their order Sunday.

Sai, a UND student from France who is majoring in business and marketing, makes crepes that “are traditional and authentic,” he said.

His most popular sweet crepes are made with strawberries, bananas and Nutella spread, he said, but customers may order versions with strawberries, bananas or cinnamon.

His savory crepes feature smoked salmon, sour cream and cheese or, in another version, filled with bacon, eggs and cheese.

Ingredients “are fresh, and the crepes are made in front of you,” Sai said.

The average price for his crepe is $8, and he accepts cash or credit cards.

With his portable crepe-making equipment, Sai has made and served his crepes at the Grand Forks Farmers Market, Bully Brew coffee shops, Empire Arts Center, Alerus Center and special events around the region over the past few years.

“I’m really flexible, but my goal is to settle a little bit,” he said, noting that, after graduating this spring, he plans to open his creperie in a more permanent location.
