French Food from a Truck!

Spencer on the Go – French Food Takeaway

I’d been meaning to stop by since Chez Spencer started parking their French-food-to-go-truck across the street from Terroir  (one of our favorite wine bars). This was the first time I had been able to give it a try. Chez Spencer on 14th st. has consistently been one of my favorite dining spots in San Francisco, and their newest endeavor did not disappoint. The restaurant remains an occasion destination, but the menu at the truck rings up at more of an every day price point.

While most of the Roach Coach facilities in San Francisco house the plentiful and delicious taco trucks, others are stretching the boundaries of the mobile culinary envelope e.g. Mission Street Food and Kung Fu (Korean) Tacos.

Anna and I picked up a few snacks and headed across the street to Terroir.  What a great concept this is: carry away French food that you can carry in to a fantastic wine establishment. Just remember to look both ways before crossing the street. We tabled up with some friends, who also had visited Spencer, and shared a few wines. We had a bottle of Gamay, a Crozes-Hermitage, and some Pineau d’Aunis. I will speak on these accompanying beverages in the next post. We sampled the curried frog legs, braised lamb, wild mushrooms in bechamel, and escargot puff lollipops. All the dishes were good, but the mushrooms were our favorite. The total bill was $33. Also available: foie gras torchon, veal sweetbreads, ratatouille, salad, soup, dessert. We’ll certainly be back soon to try through the rest of the menu.

French food to go is a very good thing!

    Have this in the city is such a treat. I always loved that you could buy sausages at Rosamunde’s and take them next door now it’s even better! French food and eccentric wine in one place without breaking the bank! xoxo
