In the last few years, the food truck phenomenon has finally reached a city known for its formal sit-down lunches, offering American-style street food with a French twist. Here are a few of Paris’ most loved food trucks.

Le Camion Qui Fume

Californian Kristin Frederick’s homemade buns and handcut fries make the burgers and frites at Le Camion Qui Fume, Paris’ first food truck, a standout.

Cantine California

American/Canadian Jordan Feilders is the man behind Cantine California, which has been dispensing California-inspired burgers, tacos and desserts made with 100% organic French ingredients on the streets of Paris since March 2012.

The truck has also spawned a sit-down restaurant that opened earlier this summer.

Le Réfectoire

French chef Valentine Davase started her roving food truck Le Réfectoire last year with the goal of creating une street cuisine française that uses French products and technique to elevate burgers and hot dogs with artisanal buns and toppings like aged comté. A fixed location at 36 quai d’Austerlitz offers Sunday brunch from 2:30 pm to 9:30 pm.
