Tales from a food truck in Paris…
To my surprise, the New York Times has supplied a wonderful video and article about the American invasion of food truck fare in Paris. It’s surprising because I was just speaking of this to The Dane over a Thai lunch yesterday, how disappointing it is to eat Mexican food here. Don’t get me started about finding a good burger. The Mexican food in Paris has no kick, no spice (the French generally do NOT like spicy food) and carnitas or tacos with no spice might as well be, uh, meatloaf. Berk! So with great pleasure I hear about Cantine California. Juicy, grass-fed beef, carmalized onions, carnitas, oh my god! French people will never tell you this but they LOVE a lot of American culture especially our cuisine. What’s American cuisine, you may say? It’s everything good under the sun brought and shared by all cultures living in my beautiful Étas-Unis! I’m trying their burgers this week. Who’s coming with me?
P.S. Loved the “blond” at the end who acted as if she didn’t know how to chow down. Girl, please. We all know the deal. 😉
