In Paris, some Americans are aiming to shake their reputation as a restauration rapide (fast food) culture by introducing U.S. food trucks such as Cantine California and Le Camion Qui Fume. Vacationers who reserve a car rental in France
can ride to their Parisian hotel and venture through the city in search of one of these esteemed on-the-go eateries.
Contrary to popular belief, food trucks have taken off in Paris, being deemed as "tres Brooklyn" among young Parisians, a term that translates into a combination of informality, creativity and quality.
"Younger Parisians are really into the New York food scene and the California lifestyle," Jordan Feilders, founder of Cantine California, told The New York Times. "There's a good trans-Atlantic food vibe going on Twitter and Facebook."
Whether tourists hail from the U.S. or are simply curious about authentic American fare, they can sample one of the Cantine's unique soft tacos stuffed with succulent pork carnitas and chipotles in adobo, which are imported directly from Mexico, according to the news source.
Luckily for visitors to France, the trucks are assigned to certain markets and specific days so they won't have to aimlessly drive their car rental in Paris
around the city to find these bustling mobile bistros.
