Le Camion Qui Fume - the truck with delicious burgers

A food truck in Paris with a website, a facebook page and a twitter account. If that doesn't sound impressive, then you should go check it out yourself. This food truck moves around a lot and they are never at the same place twice in a week. So if you decide to check them out, the first thing to find out is where they are at a certain day of the week. Luckily, they announce their route on their website. On Wednesday, there were nearby my work place. By nearby, I mean two train rides away. But that is all closest they will ever to me in any point in the week. In this case, the mountain has to go to Ali. There is no other way. I took a friend along with me in this quest.


Once we reached the location, it was easy to spot the truck. There was a huge crowd gathered on one side of the truck. The crowd consisted of people from the nearby offices. There may have been people like us in that crowd who was ready to hop-on-hop-off many trains to get here. Our order number was 43. At that time, they were serving order 28. The journey from 28 to 43 took over an hour. Torture, it was. How is it possible for any human being to act normal with the smell of burger and fries in the air? It is impossible. Like all food trucks, they have limited items on their menu. They make everything fresh after the order. They shut shop when they run out of stock. The burgers are juicy. The fries are crisp. These fries are better than the McDonald's fries but way low on the scale when compared to the In-N-Out fries.

There is one regret from the trip. I forgot to check-in using FourSquare. Being a food truck, I assumed this wouldn't be a FourSquare location. But I was wrong. I have pictures to share but not the pictures of the burger and the fries. The reason is simple. When we got our burgers, we were so hungry that we could think of eating and not taking pictures. The experience can be summed up as what my friend said after he finished his lunch. "I just had a gastronomic orgasm!".

If you are going to try this one out, kindly avoid the rush hours.

  10. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both
    educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is something that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i'm very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something regarding this. http://www.paydayloanszap.co.uk/

    recieve four emails with the same comment. Is there an easy method you can remove me
    from that service? Kudos!
