Food trucks in Paris – Le Camion Qui Fume

Food trucks in Paris - Le Camion Qui Fume
When I lived in Paris all those years ago, the thought of “food trucks” (like in the USA) were unheard of.

Zoom forward to the 21st Century and “Voila!” they’ve definitely arrived and become popular

  • Grab a hamburger for €8.50
  • add fries for a total of €10.50

The very first food truck was launched by an American from California who was studying at a culinary school, and saw an opportunity. Called “le Camion Qui Fume” (the Smoking Truck), it can be found at different locations at different times, so check the website for the up-to-the-minute schedule or follow them on Twitter:

  1. I’ve been to Paris three times now and I am planning the next trip now. I’m an artist, an oil painter to be exact, and I am painting a series of Paris paintings. However the Paris I’ve seen has been winter and fall. This time I will be there in April/May. And hopefully, I can return in July/August, if not this year, then next.
    I’m trying to interest other oil painters in a trip to Paris and I think we will have a group for July/August. Do you have any words of wisdom for this kind of trip?
    Hopefully I will get to do Paris with you one day soon.

    • Sue, what a wonderful plan you have! By now you would have been to Paris during April/May — what did you love the most?

      I’d love to hear all about it :-)

      I’ll be in Paris for the month of September in 2015 — any chance you’ll be there?

      It would be great to meet up!

      Cheers, a bientot!

    • Sounds like a great plan Sue, and I say go for it!

      A group of artists in Paris? Perfect!
