In the years since I have made occasional visits to the French Riviera Bakery on Chimney Rock, French Gourmet Bakery on Westheimer, Le Madeleine, and, in recent years, Melange Creperie, but I have otherwise not ventured into a French restaurant and it was only with modest interest that I saw the news that we were getting a food truck that would serve French food. An early menu posted online included gazpacho; that got my interest up a bit. In the summertime, gazpacho is a major food group around my house and I thought that would be a good time to check them out. Then they tweeted about adding a pulled pork Provencal sandwich to the menu and I decided the time had come.
The poppers are dusted with almond flour, deep fried and served with a hot sauce so I understand. I have a feeling they’re going to be rather addictive.
Initially they were tacking taxes onto the listed prices but they’ve since adopted the practice of all the other food trucks and include taxes in the price, which have crept up correspondingly. The website lists their appearances for the week and also the updated menu but you also need to follow them on Twitter, of course, to keep up with the inevitable delays or cancellations because of the weather or equipment. I’m very grateful they’re regularly scheduling stops outside the Loop.
Since I’m not much of a Francophile as I say, it is a bit odd that two of my favorite street food venders are French: this truck and Melange Creperie.
