Starting just a few years ago, Paris quietly stepped into the food truck revolution. Camion qui Fume (the smoking truck) serving California style hamburgers was the camion that started it all. People began queuing for hours for the chance at having a bite of a juicy “American” style burger. Soon enterprising expats and French alike began to set up their own Paris food trucks offering Parisians the chance to eat standing up (a completely un-French thing to do) and sample interesting unique bites at reasonable prices. This post is an excerpt from our newly released EAT Paris e-guidebook that we’ve been working on for what seems like years. But you can download it – today!
