Oui Oui, you DO want the new La Rue de Paris French Food Truck! Everything is authentic, right down to the slow service. But at least you can watch the fresh, local, organic fare – from quiche to crepes – being cooked right before your eyes.
- light, fluffy 'n buttery La Superbe with Smoked Salmon, Goat Cheese, Capers, Tomato, Fresh Basil & Pesto ($8)
- super filling, thinly sliced, a little greasy Le Voila with Rosemary Ham, Cappocollo, Martadella, Havarti Cheese, Fresh Basil, Pesto & Mayo ($7)
While taking a delightful stroll down Miracle Mile, my hand model, friend, and I happened upon brand new food truck, La Rue. To my surprise I went for majority rule, and passed on my most favorite dish of all – Quiche – and decided to split the Panini and Savory Crepe.
And I'm glad I did because La Superbe is Le Fabuleux! The Crepe is probably the fluffiest I've ever had, almost like air – but not that boring Celery kind of air – rather buttery, savory warm goodness. And while it may not look like the chef puts enough Smoked Salmon in your Crepe, it actually turns out to be plenty combined with the Crunchy Red Onion, Capers & Creamy Pesto Dijon.
The boys both chose Le Voila Panini, so of course I had to have my share. The Panini is perfectly pressed with a nice crunch. The Meats are seductively sliced thin. But between the Cheeses & Pesto Mayo, there's a little too much grease and not enough acid – a.k.a you might find yourself dipping the sandwich in the Mixed Green Salad's Dressing it comes with.
Also, Le Voila Panini is so filling, I couldn't even finish my half. Yet somehow, at the end of the meal, I found myself longing for another bite of La Superbe because, well, the name says it all.
Next time I'll definitely be indulging in the Quiche du Jour ($8), a Double Espresso ($3), Pain Au Chocolate, or La Manage a Trois Sweet Crepe with Nutella, Strawberry, Banana, Powdered Sugar & Whipped Cream ($8).
