Food Trucks: The New Moveable Feast in Paris

Our city doesn’t mess around when it comes to eating, and a new movement from the streets is changing the menu.

Forget boulangeries and brasseries, when it comes to food these days we're keeping our eyes on the road. It's a full-on street food invasion, and we're not complaining. (Well, we are complaining about the queues…)

From LA to Delhi, street food is going mobile. Food trucks are popping up everywhere, and, for the After Hours Athletes of Paris, the food truck scene is the new haute-ness.

Our number one pick? Le Camion qui Fume (The Smoking Truck). Specializing in gourmet hamburgers (made with hand-ground beef) and cooked-to-order fries, they’re a must-visit—but be prepared to wait. Most nights the line’s at least an hour. Find it every evening on the place de la Madeleine—you’ll spot a large and hungry line ahead of its 19:00 opening.

We live in the age of the mashup, and since April Cantine California has been mixing it up on the streets of Paris. This truck is half taqueria, half cupcake shop, all delicious. Would you like to wash down those Carnitas tacos with a milkshake? (Of course you would.)

Taking full advantage of its four wheels, Cantine California makes for a moving target for our teammates. Depending on the day of the week, it can be found all over the city of light. Check out their website to see where they are today.

Ready for more? You won't have to wait long, this invasion shows know signs of stopping. Our stomachs are psyched.
