Looking for fast crepes to go, Parisian style?

Looking for restaurants, or food carts/trucks that make crepes to go, like you can get in Paris. I'm not looking for a sit down restaurant, I want to stand in a line, order a crepe, watch the person make it, then eat it out of its paper wrapping while I walk down the street. There is, or used to be, a place on west 3rd st where you could order crepes from a window of a restaurant. Anyone know of anywhere else like that? These seems like the ideal food truck food, yet I'm not sure if there is such a truck... yet

    There's at least one truck:

    Le Gamin had a truck for a while, not sure where they are now.

    There's also Bar Suzette, which is in Chelsea Market, and has popped up at Union Sq Holiday Market and Madison Square Eats in the past:

        I've never eaten there, but Creperie does a booming takeout business, judging from the lines I've seen.

              Creperie is not as good as it used to be.
